Reimer & Co. Chartered Accountants Merges with MNP LLP


Reimer & Co. Chartered Accountants, a Swan River-based accounting firm, will merge with MNP LLP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, effective January 1, 2015.

Reimer & Co. was looking for an opportunity to offer more specialty services to its clients, while MNP was looking to expand in the Manitoba region.

Operating for the past 15 years, Reimer & Co. provides services including accounting, audit, tax and business advisory to business owners and organizations in a wide variety of sectors including Agriculture, Logging, Retail, Manufacturing, First Nations, Not-for-Profit and Government.

“We had been looking for some time to add more resources and specialty services, so when MNP first approached us about possibly joining forces, we felt this may be a great opportunity,” says Chris Reimer, Managing Partner, Reimer & Co. “After careful consideration and getting to know MNP, I knew the firm was the perfect fit. With deep expertise in providing professional services to a wide variety of clients in every sector— locally, across the country, as well as through affiliates around the globe—MNP enhances our ability to ensure our clients can address all their business needs no matter where their business takes them.”

With our newly expanded presence in Ottawa, MNP now has over 80 offices and a team of more than 3,000 from Montreal to Victoria.

“We are excited to have the professionals of Reimer & Co. join MNP. Their commitment to providing outstanding value and service to their clients is a philosophy we share,” says Dan Trotter, Regional Managing Partner for Southern Manitoba. “This merger also represents a new MNP location for our firm and we are thrilled to be working together to offer the Swan River and area marketplace, client-focused solutions to help them meet their personal and business goals.”

Rose Kovachik, CGA, Reimer & Co. adds that MNP has an organizational culture and values founded upon an unwavering commitment to people that is similar to Reimer & Co. “MNP focuses on creating a fun and rewarding place to work and do business, where an entrepreneurial spirit and a healthy balance between home and work life are at the core of how business is run. Although they are a larger national firm, they have always remained local in focus. We are excited to grow together in our efforts to help our clients and staff achieve even greater success.”

Kovachik and Reimer will join MNP as partners, along with 12 other team members, including two CAs and 10 other technicians, admin and support staff. The new team will remain in their current location at 359 Kelsey Trail in Swan River.
