We are activist accountants, working alongside nation builders, change makers, and fearless leaders in service of others, across Canada.

You won’t find another accounting firm like us. Our clients are just as special.

Offering specialized accounting services since 2008, our exclusive focus has been on serving Canadian community and social purpose organizations since 2014.
Our primary goal is to build or supplement internal financial capacity for our clients, which include:

Collectively, we fight for something bigger and better, including social justice, environmental sustainability, and economic inclusion and equity. Click here to see our Manifesto.

Humanity Financial is the first accounting firm in Canada to become a Benefit Company. Click here to view our most recent Impact Report.

As a company determined to use our business as a force for doing good, we were the first CPA firm in Canada to become a Certified B Corporation. We are also a Certified Caring Company; a Certified Carbon-Neutral firm, purchasing carbon offsets to support the Great Bear Forest Carbon Project; and working towards our Progressive Aboriginal Relations certification. Humanity is certified as a Great Place to Work.

We support social purpose organizations, from coast to coast to coast.

We:

develop the financial skills of your own team to become self-reliant

advance your group's case with funders

help to materialize your organization's impact

Humanity designs financial systems to empower your organization, and amplify its impacts.
We help with clean-up, catch-up, and maintenance of your organization’s records. We systematize financial information, deliver insights, and support sound decisions.
But that’s only the beginning.
Once your organization’s financial ‘house’ is in order, we’ll help to clear your pathway to financial liberation: bringing the numbers to life for all stakeholders, advancing your group’s case with funders, and materializing the impacts that your group strives for.

Getting to know Humanity Financial - are we a fit for your organization?

As you’re considering our potential fit for your organization, here’s what you should know about us:

As outsourced (part-time or full-time) finance professionals, we provide accounting services including controllership and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) related advisory and consulting services.

Our services are offered virtually. In other words, we work remotely and not from a client’s office, although we love meeting up in person when possible.

If needed, we are able to assemble a team from our Humanity pool of over 30 talented accountants, to assist clients with larger projects, meeting deadlines, or assisting with major catch-up work.

As a CPA firm that doesn’t do audits or year-end tax returns, we are somewhat unique! We partner with some of the best auditors in the country: at year-end, we provide them with a clean set of books and working papers.

Here’s what we provide to clients:

Please reach out to us for a more detailed guide outlining our service areas, how we work, and the enhancements that we can design with you to support your organization.

We acknowledge nations and leaders. We work with gratitude.

We acknowledge our traditional hosts and honour their welcome and graciousness to our team members and their families.
Our office is located on the unceded, never surrendered, stolen, traditional and ancestral territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations who have been stewards of these lands since time immemorial. As an uninvited settler on this land, we recognize the responsibility we have to actively participate in decolonizing practices that address Canada’s colonial past and the ongoing subjugation of Indigenous people. We are privileged to work, live, and play here.

We’re Humanity. We help with impact.

We look after people.

We believe in culture.

We may work with money, but we work alongside people first and foremost. From our flexitime work options setup to the office dogs, from our custom ergonomic workstations to our design for fresh air and plants in every corner — you’ll know our team is happy, and see the results in their great work.

We’re Humanity Financial.
We help with impact.

In business since 2008, we’ve been Canada’s specialist nonprofit and social purpose sector financial services firm since 2014.

Leadership is complex—especially in nonprofits, charities and social enterprises. Multiple funders support overlapping programs—financial reporting that be dizzying for managers, and impenetrable to boards. We get it, because we’ve lived it. Pressure to make social impact grows, as communities and causes need more and more. Your decision-making must be fast, clear and accurate. That’s where we come in. Humanity designs financial systems to empower you. We systematize financial information, deliver insights, support sound decisions, and advance your case with funders. We help with clean up, catch up and maintenance of your records. We keep it clean, and we help you do the same. We’re diligent, effective, and accessible. Most importantly, we listen.
