The Organization

HLH LLP Chartered Professional Accountants is a local full-service CPA firm operating out of the downtown core of Edmonton – and yes, our office is currently open!  We have a spacious floor plan with plenty of room for physical distancing, while still maintaining our fun, in-person team atmosphere.

We love what we do! We are a youthful, energetic and innovative firm that truly enjoys life. We have a well-trained team and efficient systems that enable us to deliver complex, quality and valued services to our private company and not-for-profit clients. Our team is exposed to a rich and diverse mix of client projects in many sectors of the economy.  We are deeply committed to finding improved efficiencies and following ‘lean’ thinking for ourselves and our clients.

Work/life balance is not something we strive for - it is core to who we are and how we operate. Our professionals work less overtime hours than other professional firms typically require and get paid when they do.  We are actively involved in our community and encourage our team to give back where they can.
