Colleen Ellison Partner Courtenay +1 250 338 1394

With over 30 years in public practice, I have extensive experience working with owner-managers through all stages of their business, from start-up to incorporation, efficient tax planning and assisting with succession plans.

Regardless of the task at hand, I take a personalized approach to working with clients. As much as accounting is about the numbers, it is critical that the proposed solution works for my client. When communicating with clients, I make sure to understand their challenges, priorities, and objectives so that I can act in their best interests and propose pragmatic and efficient solutions.

Having grown up in the area, it has been especially rewarding to give back to my community by serving on various civic boards that promote sporting, recreation and development in the Comox Valley. I also recognize that many communities are not as fortunate as we are, and for that reason, my family and I sponsor three children; one in Ecuador, one in El Savador, and one in Tanzania.

When not at my desk, I am likely out doing something active! I frequent the gym, like to run and ride my bike, or ski in the winter.
