Canada: OWC And Collins Barrow Victoria Merge
Last Updated: February 3 2017

Victoria, BC – Osborn Watts & Co. and Collins Barrow Victoria have been down the hall from each other in the historic Yarrow Building for over 20 years, providing excellent accounting, assurance, tax and advisory solutions to their respective clients. We are pleased to announce that, effective January 1, 2017, OWC is merging with Collins Barrow Victoria, allowing these firms to finally provide their brand of services together.

Established in 1936, OWC is one of Victoria's oldest accounting firms. The combined firm will be known as Collins Barrow Victoria, bringing OWC's three partners (Barbara Asser, Shawn Rankin, Donna Spence) together with Bill Camden, Deron Freer, Clark Lawrence, Shawn Strandberg, Andrea Tang, Todd Troyer as Principals. In this new incarnation, Collins Barrow Victoria will continue to provide their clients with excellent service from locations in Victoria (540-645 Fort Street) and Westshore (218-967 Langford Parkway).

"We are thrilled to announce our merger after working so many years side by side," says Bill Camden, principal of Collins Barrow Victoria. "This merger brings our total numbers to nine principals and 31 staff."

"We visited this idea a few times over the years, but the timing seems perfect right now," OWC's Donna Spence explains. "Our firms have a similar approach and the merger complements our current services, while also offering the value-added benefit of more specialty service lines."
