            Our Vision – A Message From Mike McIsaac

            I co-founded Renaissance Group Chartered Accountants in 2008— a year of global financial crisis and a difficult time to start a business. Today, Renaissance has more than 25 employees, four partners, and is growing steadily through traditional referrals, word of mouth, and mergers and acquisitions. Our rapid organic growth is testament to the quality of service excellence we pride ourselves in delivering to clients.

            Now, we are entering an exciting period for business in Western Canada, as many established small- to medium-sized businesses grow, change hands, and shape the economic landscape as we know it. This period will also bring with it the need for strong advisory services surrounding tax, accounting, and divestiture planning.

            Our passion at the Renaissance Group is to share our knowledge, ideas and excellence with business owners.  We look forward to working with you in helping achieve your personal and business financial goals.
