Why we do it

We create more value together than we do apart. By combining the power of our community with intentional collaboration efforts, we increase opportunities for growth and strategic value to our organizations.

How our experiences create value

The RSM Canada Alliance team is aligned around three experiences. Our structure ensures dedicated resources within RSM are focused on evolving and continually enhancing the member experience.

We engage professionals across the Alliance community to connect as peers and thought partners, deepening trust, accelerating learning and enhancing competencies.

The Leaders Conference is an annual in-person event in May that engages more than 450 members, RSM professionals, and strategic partners. Members can anticipate a dynamic general session lineup led by influential thought leaders, and explore a wide range of business solutions. Ample opportunities are available for leaders to engage in roundtable sessions, fostering accelerated learning and the exchange of best practices.

The Advisors Conference is an annual virtual event in October that brings together more than 1,000 growth-minded client service professionals who want to enrich their expertise and deepen their client relationships.

We host over 30 peer group meetings, workshops, virtual roundtables and educational sessions throughout the year to inspire camaraderie and build connections among members.

We serve as a first-choice advisor to our member organizations, enabling them to implement innovative, industry-leading solutions that expand their capabilities.

By actively listening to our members’ concerns, we align our efforts to address their key challenges. We focus on helping firms create capacity with their teams and identify innovative solutions that can drive their success. To accomplish this, we collaborate with the business and professional services industry team, ensuring we deliver solutions that set the industry standard for our ecosystem.

RSM Advantage GPO, our group purchasing organization, helps member firms leverage better pricing and account representation from suppliers of different products and services through the combined purchasing power of RSM and our community of members. This allows firms to save money, time and resources to meet the growing needs of their business.

We facilitate collaboration that makes us stronger going to market together by enabling us to deliver more robust services and solutions that meet our clients’ complex business challenges.

Collaboration results in a significant benefit for our member firms and RSM. We both benefit from increased revenue by driving new opportunities we wouldn't have without each other. We also benefit from building additional relationships among our firms. The more relationships and better understanding we have of each other and our services, the more opportunity we have for collaboration.

Collaboration gives member firms the ability to offer a larger portfolio of services to their clients, keeping out other firms that may approach their clients with those same services. For RSM, when services with a conflict arise, the Alliance serves as a natural referral channel to our member firms, preventing clients from sending that work to a competitor.
