Who we are

You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton.

Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive.

That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a special organization that’s purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is (ours is grape, just so you know).

    If you’re a bit like us, you’re driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action.

    At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are.

    And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens.
