Deloitte Canada offers public and private clients a broad range of fully integrated services that span tax and legal, assurance and advisory, risk management, financial advisory and consulting.

Deloitte Canada's 10,267 talented people, including 959 partners, in 58 locations throughout Canada, serve clients across numerous industries.

We also go to market by industry, and tax is well integrated into Government and Public Services, Energy, Resources and Industrial (ER&I), Financial Services (FS), Life Sciences & Healthcare, Consumer Business and Technology, Media and Telecom (TMT). Through this approach, we are able to communicate with our clients in a way that demonstrates we truly understand their business and have brought the right value-add perspectives from our firm to their business discussions.

We are currently seeing growth in our cross-border business, in Deloitte Legal and our recovery work in Indirect Tax.

More generally, as a practice, we are leveraging our national model to respond to growth activity across the country. Our national platform positions us to mobilize the right talent for each opportunity and leverage our multidisciplinary model. This involves assessing a business problem from multiple service lines' perspectives, so that we can provide a solution based on a thorough understanding each clients' circumstances.

This includes our recently created National Tax Office with eminent advisors, whose technical knowledge is centralized through this core center of excellence. This allows us to bring our professionals from across the practice to our clients when they require deep technical subject matter knowledge.

Innovation is a mindset and embedded in the DNA of our business. At Deloitte Canada, we leverage the newest exponential technologies and programs to help our clients innovate towards a tech-enabled future.

We are currently on a digital transformation journey of our own, as we are digitizing our tax and legal practice globally. This will change how we work and serve clients, it will allow us to automate tasks and create efficiencies, and provide our practitioners with tailored data so they can leverage those insights to inform how we advise our clients.
