About Us

We help business owners get the most out of their business.

F.H. Black & Company was established in 1990 as a Chartered Professional Accounting firm. Over the last three decades our depth of business acumen has been accessed by clients to address a variety of business challenges — well beyond services you’d expect from a traditional CPA firm. As our clients’ needs expanded so did our expertise, enabling us to transform into the full-service business consultancy we are today.

With an outlook rooted in finance and accounting FHB is a team of experienced business professionals from various backgrounds and specialties. We serve a broad range of clients across Canada, from large enterprise businesses to family owned operations.

Whether you’re a start-up or a well-established business, whether you require financing or business restructuring, our expert advisors can identify strategies to optimize your business and maximize your return.

Our History

F.H. Black’s roots run deep in Manitoba. In 1950, our founder Francis Henry Black began the company in Port Arthur, Ontario, and later established an office in Winnipeg.

The company was eventually acquired by a large accounting firm, only to be re-established with a renewed energy in 1990 by Francis’ grandson, Harry Black FCPA FCMA.

FHB in its current form has been providing clients with business solutions for over 25 years. We honour our legacy as a locally-owned institution, and remain true to our values of professionalism by giving the same care and attention to every client’s business, as we do our own.
