“Pinnacle Accounting supported our non profit organization as we transitioned from a small to mid level budget. The service that we received was professional, timely and detailed. The staff provided us with a comprehensive financial overview of our organization that has allowed the Arts Council to have complete awareness of our financial position. Pinnacle’s support allows us more time to focus on artist support, and for that we are grateful.”

Sydney Black

Nelson & District Arts Council

"Pinnacle Accounting has been the single most important counsel in our business. We have been able to use their guidance in achieving the financial goals for our practice and exceed them. Chris has been instrumental in helping us form both short and long-term vision and pursue them. Expertise is paramount at Pinnacle and yet it comes partnered with compassion. We consider ourselves blessed to have partnered with individuals who have  led us through areas of our business where we simply lack expertise. It sure is nice to lean on someone else for these things. "

Dr. Matthew Osepchook


“Wouldn't Have Survived Without them!!!
Pinnacle PAC has been critical to the growth of SalusPro.  We had so many challenges as a new start-up tech company, from raising capital and awarding stock options, to scaling our business. Pinnacle has been with us every step of the way, and I would recommend them to any company that is looking for relationship-based accounting.”

Gabe Guetta


“Pinnacle has provided ANKORS with accounting services in performing our annual financial audit for over a decade. We find the Pinnacle staff to be very professional and helpful. This business is a standout in terms of their ethical and environmental practices. They support the community
through their commitment to arts and culture and they are a pleasure to
work with.”

“Pinnacle Accounting completely saved my business. After transferring my services to them they helped me to get total financial control of my business. Having them watching over Power By You makes me sleep better at night. Best business decision I ever made. “

“To say that Willow, Chris and the team were an essential aspect to our entire project would be an understatement! They were there for us long before we even got shovels in the ground and gave us sage advice from the formation of our business plan through construction and getting our doors open. They are professional, driven, upfront and easy to work with. The numbers can be overwhelming but their communication makes all your decisions that much clearer."

“The team at Pinnacle works hard for our company’s best interests. When embarking on the journey of business ownership, much of the accounting was a mystery. The competence of the Pinnacle team generated the trust and confidence that my business financials are always handled accurately and timely. When we need their help and advice they are always available.”

Gary Megaw

XL Quality Industrial Services Inc.

“I have used accounting services for various businesses more than twenty years, and it has always been a yearly chore; one that was costly and confusing, but a necessary in order to maintain friendship with the government.

This all changed when I stumbled upon Pinnacle. I, for the first time, had an accounting department attached to my business. One that was working as part of the team, throughout the year, for the benefit of my company. Always easy to access, full of information and willing to go the extra mile. I have come to rely on my extended group of expert employees to make the business run at its optimum.

As I move forward and explore new opportunities, in years to come, I will be doing so with my team from Pinnacle.”

“Pinnacle Professional Accounting came highly recommended to us, and they have not disappointed.

It has been a pleasure working with the Pinnacle team.  They are studious, polite, and easy to work with, and we completely trust their team to represent our accounting needs in a professional manner.”

Calvin Lamontagne & Lynn Lowen

"The Pinnacle team has been incredible to work with. We appreciate that they are long-time lovers and supporters of the arts.  They have helped us take our festival and our non-profit society to the next level. They always take the time to answer our questions and it feels like all the team members really  care about our organization. We are thrilled to have found accountants who not only understand our organization but who also actively support the arts in our community."

Carla Stephenson

Executive Director

“Thanks for all the great work over the years.  When we started 15 years ago or so, our businesses were basically operating out of a shoe box, and you had the patience to bear with us as our businesses evolved.  And as we grew, we always turned to Pinnacle for guidance and advice.  It has taken quite a while, but those messy little shoe boxes have grown in to organized shoe racks , and we could not have done it without your help!

And…I will say that it has been an added benefit to work with a group that emphasizes social responsibility.  Your contributions to the arts are just one example that proves that.  And it is always fun to drop in and check out the latest colors you are testing out in the office.  Thanks again for everything and we look forward to more of the same!”
