At TSGI, innovation and professionalism are at the core of our business. You’ll find these in our clients, our projects and our team. You’ll see it demonstrated in the questions we ask and in the services we provide. We believe in the value of establishing mutually respectful, long-term relationships with our clients and organizations that we partner with.
We strive to deliver meaningful results in all that we do, and take great pride in the role that we play in helping our clients succeed. We value the opportunity to work with companies across a spectrum of industry sectors, giving us not only a well-rounded foundation of experience, but also a unique vantage point on the Canadian innovation landscape.
We are committed to upholding our clients’ best interests and operating with integrity. We do the job right the first time, every time, so you can be confident in your decision to engage TSGI.
TSGI grew out of a Calgary-based Chartered Accountancy (CA) practice founded by Ken Cudmore in 1983. The firm experienced tremendous organic growth, earned through a reputation for uncompromising excellence and fully personalized service. Consulting services at that time included a full menu of general accounting support, business planning and tax advising.
Strategic grant writing and SR&ED applications naturally evolved as complementary services under the umbrella of the accounting practice, and we observed firsthand the powerful difference these services could make for our clients. By the year 2000, having contributed to the growth of scores of companies through SR&ED services, we were inspired to divest our general accounting practice and dedicate our efforts to being Western Canada’s first choice for SR&ED expertise.
With a cohort of experienced SR&ED professionals, and thousands of projects successfully supported through SR&ED, we recognized the opportunity to leverage our familiarity with business strategy and project management to further support the innovative companies that we work with. Our Transaction Services division was launched in September 2016 to support companies beyond R&D and into the next phases of corporate growth.
