We're committed to keeping public companies informed on important developments. CorporateGovernor, a Grant Thornton US quarterly newsletter, is created to keep management, board of directors and audit committee members of mid-cap public companies abreast of issues that affect the marketplace and their businesses. I highly recommend this to our Canadian clients as well worth the read.

The Grant Thornton advantage: more time with partners, the attention you deserve

As a public company, you’re faced with fast-paced and complex regulatory, business and global challenges—challenges that require your professional services team to anticipate your needs and help you mitigate risk, from the boardroom to the C-suite to the shop floor.

Audit and accounting

Our partner-led audit teams are client-focused; they spend the time it takes to get to know your business and to follow regulatory, industry and marketplace developments. You can trust us to complete an engagement that is tailored to your needs and will stand up to scrutiny. We maintain independence and strive to add value at every service opportunity, from audit to complex accounting to IFRS application or conversion.


You answer to a diverse set of stakeholders. Your tax needs range in scope from provincial to national to international, with an increased focus on tax compliance and on leveraging tax opportunities. Combine this with tax legislation that is complex and always changing, and you’re likely in need of solid tax advice. That's where we come in. Our tax services will support your tax planning and compliance strategies and help you gain the competitive advantage you want.


Your success is impacted by an ever-changing and increasingly complex regulatory environment coupled with growing demands to enhance shareholder value. By assembling the right multi-disciplinary team, we can help you determine strategic alternatives for value maximization.

For public companies, our services range from advising you on risk and regulatory compliance issues to assisting with mergers and acquisitions to improving operations. Our team of public company advisors draws from our national and international pool of expertise in our governance, risk and compliance; corporate finance; information technology; operational improvement and strategic advisory groups.
