National accounting firm establishes presence in Terrace, B.C.

Terrace's McAlpine & Co. to become part of MNP LLP as of Feb. 1, 2016

A WELL-KNOWN Terrace-based accounting firm is to become part of a larger accounting and consulting firm as of Feb. 1.

The announcement regarding McAlpine & Co, which this year marks 50 years in business, and MNP LLP, the fifth largest firm of its type in Canada, was made today.

“MNP has 19 offices in B.C, including three northern B.C. locations in Prince George, Fort St. John and Vanderhoof and we have been looking for like-minded firms to build on our strategic plans for growth in northern B.C.,” said MNP official Darren Turchansky.

“Terrace is the regional service hub with many of the business, retail, medical and government services for the northwestern portion of British Columbia. As the economy of Terrace grows, so do the needs of the business community and we recognize that both the community and our firm have an opportunity to grow together.”

Michael Johnson, one of three McAlpine partners, said the move follows a period of reflection on the direction the firm should take.

“As the marketplace evolves and our client needs become more complex, we believe becoming part of a national firm with a local client service philosophy and greater breadth and depth of services and resources will serve our clients well and position us for continued success and growth,” said Johnson.

MNP itself is 55 years old and has 3,500 employees in offices from Victoria to Montreal.

Including partners, the McAlpine office has 20 members.
