For me, community is at the centre of everything.
I have the privilege of serving members of the Chinese community I belong to, and as part of that service, I co-authored Canadian Taxation in Chinese which has given me my share of media exposure.
I volunteer much of my time supporting community-based non-profit organizations, including Treasurer of the Markham-Unionville PLA and SYSU Toronto Association. And then there is my business school and accounting alumnae community.
And, of course, there is the growing community of 10,000+ corporate and individual clients serviced locally and regionally by the network of Turner Moore accounting partners I joined forces with in 2007. Good times.
Finally, there’s the community of “frienemies” I spend time with on the golf course.
So despite what you might think about accountants, I am never lonely.
In some ways, choosing an accountant is a bit like shopping a golf launch monitor. You can go the budget route and try to perfect your swing in an oversized box with a screen or some basic pointers OR you can get the one that everyone at the pro shop lines up to use and go big with an experience that will transform your game.

There isn’t anything more important to me than trust. It’s the foundation of any good friendship, the mortar that binds family and the door to love and respect. And, when it comes to building relationships with my clients, it serves as the tool that ensures our work together is done properly and effectively and to the highest possible standard.
Beyond my superhero-like ability to establish trust with my clients, I bring to the table a host of professional designations and extensive skills and experience related to accounting, auditing and taxation.
The breadth of knowledge and know-how that I’ve acquired since graduating from Brock University in St. Catharines with a Bachelor degree of Accounting back in 2005 has positioned me well within my career to pursue a variety of paths. However, I prefer to focus my work primarily in the area of audit and review engagements for private corporations, including but not limited to private colleges, travel agencies, daycare centres, condominiums and not-for-profit organizations.
I’m authorized to practice as a Licensed Public Accountant by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario, but I’ve chosen to make Richmond Hill and the surrounding area my “numbers turf”. And I couldn’t be any prouder to represent this beautiful city, with the goal every single day to make Richmond Hill “the place you want to be” from a financial audit and review perspective.
If I’m not in my office crunching numbers or building trust with another new client (have I mentioned how much value I place on trust?), I can often be found doing the downward dog or enjoying the outdoors. Yoga and hiking are two of my passions in life. They help me centre my energy, allowing me to harness it for the clients I work for.
I’m Irene Ji. If you have an accounting need that requires my energy, expertise and trust, I’d love to meet with you to find out how I can be of service.
