TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - BDO Canada LLP is pleased to announce its
merger with Interis Consulting Inc., a leading management consulting
firm with operations in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton.
Interis's team of more than 50 professionals has over 16 years of
experience providing planning and performance, transformation and
change, and risk and compliance services. As one of the leading
accounting and advisory firms in Canada, BDO is focused on continuously
enhancing its comprehensive suite of advisory services to meet the
growing needs of its clients.
Interis has in-depth experience serving public sector clients, including
federal and provincial agencies, Crown corporations, public service
organizations, and municipalities. The Interis team's years of
experience and industry knowledge will help lead BDO's Ottawa-based
government services practice. The service line combines BDO's strong
foundation in serving public sector clients with Interis's full
spectrum of services to help organizations improve performance,
implement change and manage risk. Interis, a winner of the Employees'
Choice Awards by the Ottawa Business Journal, will continue to serve
its clients with its team as it begins integration into BDO.
Interis also specializes in the financial services sector, working with
banks, financial cooperatives, insurance and asset management
companies. Its Montreal-based team will expand BDO's capabilities and
resources to offer additional services to clients in the financial
services sector in Quebec.
Interis's team in Ottawa joins BDO's existing assurance, accounting, tax
and advisory practice in the city. This merger significantly increases
BDO's team and range of expertise in the nation's capital and
surrounding areas with a combined team of over 100 partners and
professionals. BDO's Montreal office will expand to over 200 partners
and professionals with the addition of the local Interis team. In
addition to its current markets, Interis will expand its services into
other BDO locations in Canada.

to join BDO and gain the value of its support to our practice. By
combining our strengths, we will continue to achieve national growth
and reach a larger platform to benefit new and existing clients."
