FORVIS, a leading accounting and advisory firm, continues to grow its international presence with an expansion into Canada.
The FORVIS Global Advisory Canada ULC office has opened in Toronto and is focused on providing advisory services to clients in the financial services industry. As a wholly owned subsidiary of FORVIS, LLP, FORVIS Global Advisory Canada is positioned to serve the needs of several core financial services clients in Canada, including some of the country’s largest banks. The new office will also assist FORVIS, LLP efforts in meeting the needs of its multinational clients that have operations in Canada.
