History of Ledgers

2019 Ledgers Canada's Head Office in Newmarket, ON
16775 Yonge St. Newmarket, ON

We are  a ‘one-stop’ destination for all of the financial needs of small business. Today, there are more than 50 Ledgers Franchises across Canada, including CA’s, CGA’s, CMA’s and mor. We happily provide services to thousands of small businesses each month and we prepare over 10,000 personal income tax returns annually.


In November of 2000 Ledgers was acquired by Gordon Haslam and moved to the current location in Newmarket, Ontario. Over this period of time, our corporate offices have expanded from an initial 600 square feet to just under the 7,000 square feet we occupy today.


Our team spent 2 years developing the Ledgers Model.  In April 1997, the first Franchise was awarded to Terry Bachmann of Moncton NB; Terry was instrumental in developing the marketing models, standards and procedures we still use today, and Terry is still a proud member of the Ledgers Network.


Ledgers was conceptualized by a team of Professional Accountants from Sydney Nova Scotia in 1994 when the need for consistent, professional and affordable accounting services was recognized.  After a preliminary investigation, it was realized that the small business market could not afford the services available from CPA’s and the larger firms, while the services from the local ‘bookkeeper’ were not adequate.
