KPMG in Canada is proud to share recent changes in the Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada practice:

Meet Andrea Coish, the new Managing Partner in Nova Scotia and a Partner in KPMG’s Advisory practice. Originally from Newfoundland and Labrador, Andrea has been a resident of the mainland for almost 30 years. Throughout her 25-year tenure with KPMG in Halifax, Andrea has provided Risk Consulting services to public companies, private enterprises, and government entities across the Atlantic provinces and throughout the country. Andrea’s ability to connect with clients and create lasting relationships, coupled with her knowledge of the Nova Scotia market, truly sets her apart. She embodies the hard-working values of her Newfoundland roots, along with the resilience and community support characteristic of Nova Scotia. Her leadership is a testament to KPMG’s commitment to adapt and grow with the changing times.



Another new addition to the team is Audit Partner, Paul Janes, a former high school classmate of Andrea’s. “The tides are changing in Nova Scotia,” says Andrea. “We will seize the opportunities that come our way. I am excited to have Paul be part of this journey and contribute to KPMG’s continuous growth and enhanced service to the community.  We are committed to support local businesses and organizations and bringing value to our clients.”

Originally from Newfoundland and Labrador, Paul has been in Halifax for close to 10 years. With over 25 years of experience in public accounting, Paul has established a track record as a trusted business advisor, particularly to private companies. His profound knowledge in the construction industry and his dedication to working with indigenous organizations reflect KPMG’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity.



“I am thrilled to be joining the KPMG team in Halifax. The sense of community, resilience, and innovation that is so inherent to Nova Scotia is mirrored in KPMG’s ethos, and I am eager to be a part of this,” Paul says. “I look forward to working with the talented team here and giving back to the community that we serve. Together, I believe we can make a significant impact.”

Paul has served as a strategic consultant to large private entities and has provided advisory services for the past 16 years to two prominent indigenous groups. His passion for delivering excellence and fostering lasting relationships is evident in his work.

In addition to Paul and Andrea, Todd MacIntosh has recently been appointed as Atlantic Managing Partner, while retaining his role as Managing Partner in New Brunswick. With over 25 years of experience providing tax and business advice to private companies headquartered in the Atlantic provinces, Todd has a deep understanding of the diversity of businesses and organizations in the region.



“The recent leadership changes and the addition of Paul to our team are a testament to KPMG’s commitment in Atlantic Canada,” notes Todd. “Our exceptional Atlantic Canada team, bolstered by Paul’s expertise and Andrea’s leadership, is ideally positioned to provide outstanding service to our clients in a constantly changing environment.”

With leaders like Andrea and Paul, we are embracing the future while staying true to our Nova Scotian roots.
