John Doma

FCPA, FCA
Managing Partner

John Doma knows that the most  important step in building and maintaining long-term relationships is asking clients what they need while taking the time to actively listen and nurture these relationships. With more than 30 years of public accounting experience, he is tenacious and client-focused, providing meaningful strategies and proactive advice that preserve and grow clients’ businesses and wealth.

Earning his Bachelor of Business Administration, Honours, from Wilfrid Laurier University, John is also a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario and a member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants. His astuteness to mitigating risk, as well as early detection of issues, results in highly curated solutions for his clients. John has assisted many in negotiating tax-effective solutions on strategic acquisitions and divestitures of business involving share and asset transactions. His expertise also extends to planning for real estate transactions with an emphasis on tax minimization.

Employing a hard work ethic and long-term planning, two values instilled in him by his parents, John believes the decisions you make today will impact you tomorrow. That’s why planting and fertilizing seeds by thinking of the future needs of his clients is critical to their succession planning. With excellent precision, John helps businesses navigate the decisions needed to transfer a business to the next generation.

Deeply rooted in the Slovenian community, John is the Honourary Consul General for the Republic of Slovenia, an honour that he calls one of the proudest accomplishments of his life. He is a past  Director of Green Energy Co-operative, Director and Chairman of the Canadian Slovenian Chamber of Commerce, and a co-founder and Director of the Canadian Slovenian Scholarship Foundation. He’s been awarded Slovenia’s Horus Award for Social Responsibility and Canada’s Sesquicentennial Citizenship Award for his contributions to the community of Burlington, and the Slovenian-Canadian Scholarship Award for his exceptional volunteerism.

When asked what he likes best about his career, John says it’s the people. He’s driven by mentorship and watching his team members and clients succeed, empowering both to build and use their own strengths. John is equally driven by his family. He credits his wife, Margaret, for much of his success. Together they have four adult children and four beautiful grandchildren.
