Reporting that serves the public interest: let us help you get there.

Working for a public-sector organization comes with a unique set of requirements for accounting and financial reporting. Grant Thornton LLP’s accounting standards team has the practical, public-sector experience and in-depth knowledge you need. Our experts have worked extensively with all types of public-sector entities, including: federal, provincial and local governments, first nations, government partnerships and government organizations.

Grant Thornton is on the front line of the standard-setting process to ensure your interests are heard. We present issues to the Canadian Public Sector Accounting Board’s (PSAB’s) Public Sector Accounting Discussion Group, which offers a public forum to discuss issues that arise in Canada when applying PSAS.  Our team will keep you informed of the latest developments and assist with any of your assurance or accounting advisory needs.
