Assurance Services

Comprehensive Auditing and Assurance Solutions

In today’s ever-changing and competitive business environment, public accounting firms have to be able to stay up to date with new standards and apply them in a manner that best reflects clients’ needs.

Canada’s harmonization with the accounting standards of the international community for public companies, while retaining unique Canadian accounting standards as a choice for non-public companies and not-for-profit organizations, means that Canadian public accounting firms need to adapt accordingly. In the US, on the other hand, accounting standards continue to retain a US flavour, thus adding to the complexity of financial reporting. As a mid-tier firm, SLF is strategically placed to meet these challenges.

Canadian assurance and auditing standards have also undergone significant changes in recent years and, here too, we are well versed in what this means for our clients.

We therefore offer a comprehensive range of assurance solutions, including audits, other types of assurance engagements and compilations. We have also implemented a stringent set of quality control policies in this regard to ensure the objectivity, independence and integrity of our services. Our common-sense, risk-based approach takes the needs of various stakeholders into account.

Our experience in this area extends to businesses at every stage of their development operating in a broad spectrum of industries, including mining, oil and gas, agriculture, automotive, shipping, pharmaceutical, retail, distribution and manufacturing, here in Canada and abroad.
