At KeatsConnelly, we work hard to help our clients realize their dreams of a cross-border lifestyle. We are often called upon as industry experts on several financial, economic and general business topics in both Canada and the United States. Due to our team’s hard work, we also have the great honor of being recognized by organizations and associations across the country as leaders in our industry and in the community.
Below is a snapshot of some of our most recent news, outreach and recognition:
Welcome to our four newest employees –Stephen Thompson, Russ Cummings, Amanda Shuster and Mary-Heather Styles!
