Who we are

ConnectCPA LLP is not your traditional accounting firm. We are paperless, tech savvy and we think outside the box. We are a team of thirteen, growing rapidly, and are in search of a team member that meshes with our unique firm culture.-

We are a Licensed Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) firm that operates with a startup mentality: We experiment, we collaborate, we embrace new technologies and we have fun doing it.

We are breaking every "accounting firm" stereotype: We dress casually, we use Skype, Zoom and Slack to communicate and we have a culture of trying new things everyday.

- No formalwear required
- We have 3 different coffee machines - seriously 3!
- You'll join us on our annual team retreat, where we get to relax, hang out and improve the firm. Pictures from our last retreat can be found HERE.
