Venita Leonard Senior Manager Toronto +1 416 607 2614

As a Canadian Domestic Senior Tax Manager in the Southern Ontario business unit, I advise public and private companies on a broad range of Canadian and international tax compliance, accounting and planning matters—allowing them to achieve their organizational objectives.

With eight years of a mix of public accounting and industry experience behind me, I bring a well-rounded background to every client engagement. I’m particularly well-versed in tax matters affecting the manufacturing, financial services and real estate sectors, and work diligently to understand all aspects of each client’s business and organizational structure to identify their tax issues, risks and opportunities. This allows me to pinpoint their needs and coordinates a cross-functional team of specialists to deliver a wide array of proactive solutions—which span from tax compliance, income tax accounting and tax function optimization to tax planning and minimization solutions, government audit support, transaction support and international tax services.

As a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (CPAO), I have also completed all three levels of the Canada In-Depth Tax Course, as well as various other internal and external courses related to my practice.

Aside from serving internal clients, I enjoy supporting United Way initiatives and volunteering my time to the local community through various charitable organizations, such as the Toronto Humane Society and local community tax clinics. I have also facilitated CPA Ontario and CPA Canada courses, and mentored CPA students.
