Current Opportunities

Baker Tilly GWD is a leading midsize accounting firm with offices in Guelph and Elora. Locally owned, we make an impact with value-added accounting, advisory, audit and tax services.

We serve clients at all stages of their development from emerging and owner-managed businesses to large private companies, not-for-profit organizations, professionals, and individuals.
