TORONTO, September 12, 2018 – Collins Barrow, one of Canada’s most well-known accounting brands, is set to announce expansion plans and a new vision for Canada's largest network of independent audit, accounting, tax and advisory firms. 2020 Vision will be championed by Grant Galbraith, FCPA, FCA, the new chair of the board of directors, Collins Barrow National Cooperative.
