Leading tax firm relocates Canadian headquarters to Calgary's downtown core

H&R Block Canada's new office space contributes to the ongoing diversification of downtown Calgary

CALGARY, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - H&R Block Canada (H&R Block), Canada's #1 brand in personal tax preparation, announced today that it has relocated its Canadian corporate headquarters from Calgary's southeast quadrant to the downtown core. Serving taxpayers for more than 50 years, H&R Block's relocation to downtown is reflective of the company's ongoing growth and success in the marketplace, and will allow them to better serve the nation.

After calling southeast Calgary home for 25 years, H&R Block moved its offices on October 17, 2016, to Scotia Centre at 2600 – 700 2nd Street S.W. With more affordable real estate becoming available in the downtown core due to the economic transition, H&R Block saw the potential to make a strong business move.

"We couldn't pass up the opportunity to move to Calgary's downtown core," said Rick Brown, Managing Director, H&R Block Canada. "The move not only allows us to be in the hub of the city, but allows a vibrant, corporate culture to flourish. This move represents a significant milestone for our company and emphasizes why H&R Block chose Calgary as its corporate headquarters."

A frontrunner in the Canadian business sector, H&R Block's presence in the downtown core signals a shift from the previous energy-dominated marketplace to one where all major economic players can thrive. The relocation means employees from all four quadrants of the city are able to commute to a central location for work. Employees also have easy access to public transportation.

Now, especially when Calgary is looking for new ways to maintain the culture of downtown, a major Canadian corporate player is moving in.
