Friesen Pankratz & Associates or FPA was formed in 2000 upon the merger of Edward Friesen & Associates Inc. and Harrison Pankratz & Co.
Edward Friesen & Associates Inc. was founded in 1978 by Ted Friesen upon receiving his CGA designation. Harrison Pankratz & Co. was the successor to a CGA firm started in 1972. In 2000, upon the retirement of his partner, John Pankratz joined Ted Friesen and Jeff Friesen. The combined firm opened its office on Clearbrook Road in Abbotsford, BC on August 1st.
In 2006 the firm’s legal structure was changed from a general partnership to a limited liability partnership. This change affected the personal liability of the individual partners but it did not reduce the protection to our clients. The firm, its partners and all professional staff are covered by a comprehensive liability insurance policy for your protection.
In 2013, Ted Friesen, one of the founding partners, retired from public practice.
With over 40 years of experience, we have developed an array of innovative services, each designed to help our clients achieve their goals.
