Julie Ford Partner Collingwood +1 705 445 8493

As a public practitioner, I have been providing accounting and tax services to a diverse group of clients in the Collingwood and surrounding area for over 25 years.

Joining Grant Thornton as a partner in the accounting group in 2021 allows me to continue providing the utmost in professional and personal service, while fulfilling the firm's mission of helping our clients, colleagues and communities to thrive.

Over the years, I have been privileged to support owner-managed businesses across a range of industries, and find it very rewarding to help them meet their accounting and tax needs.

I’ve also always enjoyed giving back to our community. As a mentor for the T3 Accelerator program, I work with some great people. Additionally, I’ve had the honor of serving as the Finance Chair for the Georgian Bay Chapter of CARP and the Finance Chair for My Friend’s House.

In my leisure time, I have been fortunate to enjoy the outdoor playground of our area. Over the years, you could find me out on Georgian Bay, on the ski hills or biking around the area. Of late, my passions include travelling in our RV or getting out in the fresh air at our cabin.
