Testimonials

Here's how our clients describe McCay Duff, what it's like working with us and how we help them succeed.

Randy Goyette & Mike Dupuis

Daquin Unique Marketing Solutions

We recently logged our best year ever and our ‘trusted advisor’ has been with us every step of the way.

McCay Duff is more of a partner to us than just an accounting firm. Maximizing business value and helping us minimize taxes and costs is just the start. We’ve come to trust the advice they offer because they treat our business like it it their own.

Marc LaFontaine

Real Estate Agent
Remax Absolute LaFontaine Realty Inc.

Three years ago, I brought in McCay Duff to help us set up a new corporation, probably the best move we could have made at the time.

First of all, they are prompt—very responsive to our needs. When they offer an approach, it is comprehensive and explained in layman terms so it is crystal clear. This is far more than a transaction between my company and McCay Duff. I have developed a deep and rewarding relationship that l consider a significant factor in our mutual success.

Linda Andrews

Secretary/Treasurer
Erwin's Automotion Inc.

McCay Duff was instrumental in helping us with succession planning and also helped us through the development of a holding company as well as two partial tax audits.

What I like the most about McCay Duff is that when an issue comes up, they don't just tell us what to do. They listen, they explain things in a way that we can understand and then they give us a range of options. The pros and cons of each option are clearly laid out so there is no confusion or misinterpretation. I'm glad they are on our side.

Michael James

Kanata Highlands Veterinary Professional Corporation

McCay Duff was there at the beginning when they helped us refine the business plan and cash-flow projections that helped us secure financing.

They continued to work with us by recommending a corporate structure and providing financial data management services, something we will continue to use. If we had to pick one word to describe our experience, we would probably choose “professional.”

Renzo Catana

Catana Reporting Services

When we considered expanding our business, we turned to McCay Duff. The analysis they offered allowed us to move forward with confidence.

Quite apart from the strong advice and broad perspective we get from McCay Duff, one of the things I appreciate most is their responsiveness. It doesn’t matter if the issue is big or small, we never have to wait long for a thoughtful and thorough answer. They have constantly shown they are as concerned about our success as we are.

Richard Levesque

Ottawa Derm Centre

It was apparent from the start that this was more than 'someone to do our taxes.'

We approached McCay Duff well before we drafted our business plan and the advice we received was invaluable. We did not expect this level of personal care from an accounting firm. It’s been more of a partnership, like we are all in this together.

Peter Patterson

EMSEC Solutions

McCay Duff is clearly interested in much more than our accounting records. Evidence of this was our accountant’s request to visit our out-of-town facility.

Our company has turned to McCay Duff for both personal and business accounting services. The reason is simple: They offer solid advice in a very personable way and they look at our business like it’s their business. They take a real interest in our success and we appreciate that.

Rick Bracken

The Fitness Lab Ottawa

On top of the personal service, it helped that they were already familiar with our payroll system. That made the switchover fast and flawless.

One of the key things about working with McCay Duff is that they keep us informed in language we understand and they are always available to answer questions.

Natalie Lafrenière

Executive Director
Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre

They keep us on track all year to ensure we are using best practices and they are very quick to answer our queries no matter the issue.

The great business relationship we have with McCay Duff extends to the personal level, as well. We do important work in the community often for very vulnerable people. At every level at McCay Duff, they appreciate and respect that and never hesitate to show their support.

Amy Jackson

Lawyer
Farber Robillard Leith LLP

I would not go anywhere but McCay Duff for company valuation and income-determination services.

The level of professionalism, expertise and skill is unmatched. The specialized knowledge that Rick Evans brings is hard to find and I am fortunate to have a collaborative relationship with him when providing services to my clients. My clients also appreciate the knowledge and experience that he brings to their situations!

Christina O’Neil

Executive Director
Unitarian House

McCay Duff keeps us on track and helps make sure we are meeting our financial and legal requirements.

Over the years - and it has been a few! - McCay Duff has become a valuable partner in our effort to provide a secure and caring environment for our residents. They know our facilities and they know us and that makes a real difference. We are happy to recommend them.

Jennifer Lalonde

Executive Director

McCay Duff is there not just at year’s end, but also during the year when we need advice.

Whether they are reviewing our processes or answering finance related questions, McCay Duff is always highly responsive, professional and friendly in their approach.  These are all qualities we really appreciate and we recommend them without hesitation.

Tom Taggart

Chief Executive Officer

Highly professional, they provide extraordinary service and excellent value and I recommend them whenever I can.

As well as being my personal accountants, McCay Duff has provided important valuation services. Their knowledge is current and relevant and they are always available to answer questions and explain the details.

They seem to be always looking for solutions for me ...

I’ve been using the services of McCay Duff for several years now. They don’t just offer advice when I need it—they seem to be always looking for solutions for me, sometimes even before I know I need them. This is incredibly valuable to my small business.

David Stevenson

Stevenson Trinka Dentistry

They don’t try to be what they are not ...

For quite a number of reasons, we have been McCay Duff clients for over two decades. One of the things we most like about the team is what they don’t do. They don’t try to be what they are not. When other professionals are needed—lawyers, financial planners and others—they don’t try to get involved beyond their areas of expertise. Because they want the very best for us, they know when to speak up and when to refer us to others. They probably don’t realize how much we appreciate that.

Dr. Alfred Sisto

MD, FRCPC
Community Pediatrics
Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ottawa, Civic and QCH hospitals

They are highly responsive to my questions and needs ...

Since 1990, the accountants at McCay Duff have been providing me with expert advice on everything from taxes to investing. In my opinion, their experience, knowledge and skills are second to none. They are professional in all their dealings and highly responsive to my questions and needs. It’s my pleasure to recommend them.

Dr. Juan Bass

Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario

They relieve the stress of having to deal in areas that are beyond my expertise ...

I would highly recommend the accounting Firm of McCay Duff. I have been using the Firm’s services for almost 30 years and have always found the team to be responsive, professional and, as importantly, able to relieve the stress of having to deal in areas—notably taxes—that are beyond my areas of expertise. I truly appreciate the Firm's skills, knowledge and capabilities and often wonder where I would be without them.

John Southwell

Carlgate Development Ltd.

I’ve been fortunate to have found considerable success in my business ...

McCay Duff has been offering good advice almost since the beginning. From the early days of our relationship, we’ve always gotten along well. One of the main reasons, I think, is mutual respect. I would strongly recommend the Firm to anyone looking for highly professional accountants.

Michael G. Buckley

President & CEO
EXPOGRAPHIQ

Without exception, I have always been satisfied ...

I would highly recommend McCay Duff, the accounting Firm I have been using for many years. As our company has grown, so too, have the services I’ve used from there. Without exception, I have always been satisfied and would not hesitate to recommend McCay Duff to anyone looking for knowledgeable, skillful accounting professionals.

Tom Brockett

Chief Accountant
Knights of Columbus

Always timely, thorough and efficient ...

The auditing work they do for our Canadian operations is second to none—always timely, thorough and efficient. More than that, however, the staff and partners at McCay Duff provided a high degree of insight and expertise when we adopted International Financial Reporting Standards. We are very happy with their work and highly recommend them to anyone in need of a chartered accountant, in particular, and financial advice, in general.

Chris Gillin

President
Gillin Engineering and Construction Ltd.

Advice comes quickly and is always right on the money ...

The relationship between my company and McCay Duff goes back decades. You expect professionalism, of course, and they deliver. But more than that, despite being a big Firm, they make us feel like we are their only clients. Advice comes quickly and is always right on the money. Literally.

Dr. D. Stephen Brown

Vascular Surgeon

The people there have proven to be very skilled at saving me money ...

When I first moved from Ontario to New Brunswick, I looked at several local accounting Firms for tax advice for both my personal and professional accounts. I knew McCay Duff was among the very best as my father, also a surgeon, had used the company for many years—I believe he had been one of Mr. Duff’s first clients. I wanted the same competence in my accountants so I chose to keep my business at McCay Duff. It was a good decision for me. Apart from the friendly yet professional demeanour of all the staff I have encountered over the past 25 years, I truly felt like they had my best interest at heart. When I incorporated my practice they were seamless in their integration with my legal team as well. The people there have proven to be very skilled at saving me money.

Mark Kovalsky

President
Voice Innovate Corporation

Sound and reasoned financial advice, the kind that lets me sleep well at night ...

McCay Duff has been at my side for more than 20 years, through good times and bad. Not only do they provide great accounting services, but I know I can count on them to give me sound and reasoned financial advice, the kind that lets me sleep well at night.

Michael Nolan

President
Friesen, Kaye and Associates

Extraordinary people who have been instrumental in our success ...

McCay Duff comprises a tremendous group of extraordinary people who have been, without question, instrumental in our success. They have been at my side since the day I purchased the company in the mid-80s and have been involved in every major financial decision since. I can’t imagine doing this without them.
