Entrust Us

About Us

Entrust was started in 1991 to fill the gap between the accounting giants that best served large corporations and the individual accountants serving small businesses.

We’re a team of individuals brought together by the belief that accounting is more than just numbers.

We pride ourselves in providing strategic financial advice that helps privately held organizations grow their businesses, plan for their futures and simplify their lives.

Our Commitment - To our Clients and the Community

Our service commitment is pretty straight forward: we treat our clients how we want to be treated.

We’re respectful, receptive and communicative. That means being available to answer your questions and concerns, or even to just listen.

When we’re not hard at work, we believe in giving back to the community we work in. From our annual giving to “Basics for Babies” to our involvement with initiatives like the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, we believe in making our world a little bit better.

Who We Work With

Our clients are leaders in their industry. Your privately held company is successful and growing and you care about your business. You have financial staff but need a “big-picture CFO perspective” without an in-house CFO. Many successful business owners make decisions on their gut instincts. Having financial tools and information to confirm those big decisions is the difference of a good decision and a very good decision.
