We are Northshore

Over the years we have narrowed our focus to a few key areas and we are experts in these chosen markets. Strategic hiring, developing systems and utilizing technology ensures we are providing high quality work and client satisfaction. While a lot has changed in our business, we still believe our reputation is our greatest asset.

Our Mission

We strive to have every client absolutely and unequivocally pleased with our work. By specializing in four key markets, we deliver quality and consistent results every time.

Our Core Team

Our clients expect exceptional care and attention and we have formulated our core team to meet their expectations.

Founded in 2000, Northshore began as a home-based business providing bookkeeping and controllership services to one client. Relying on reputation and referrals, our client base grew from one client to a full scale business serving more than a thousand clients across Canada and the United States. As our clients’ needs grew, we built our team and moved to the current location.
