Like you, ATAP members are independent owner-operators of tax, accounting, bookkeeping and other financial service practices.
Being an independent owner-operator of a practice can be lonely enough, but when you're in a small town in this vast country of ours, it can be very isolating.ATAP is here to help! Our members can be found in small towns from Taylor, BC to Edmunston, NB and in bigger cities like Winnipeg, MB and, of course, Toronto, ON. We are your community of peers and you don't have to travel to connect.
At our January 2022 online seminar, we created a Community Room where people could gather in between sessions. This room allowed participants to see and hear each other (when cameras and microphones were on). There were a lot of lively discussions. It was such a success that we have committed to offering online attendance and networking options to all our events.
"The entire experience was great. The community room was one of my favourites. You were able to speak to others and not via chat. Met some amazing people and was able to connect with other individuals."
"It makes accessibility so much better. Love the hybrid option for choice."
"Loved the networking. Let’s do more virtual networking."
Coming Soon!There's a long time between seminars so we are planning to schedule some separate online gatherings. We hope to include social, educational and resource-sharing activities.
Powered by Slack, the discussion board is a new feature of our member portal. We've set up channels where you can introduce yourself, ask questions, share resources and stay up-to-date with association news.
ATAP’s mission is to provide independent Tax, Accounting and other financial professionals with the tools and support they need to grow thriving practices. You can find out more on our about page.
We are the only professional association exclusively for independent practice owner-operators.

read what one of our long-term members has to say:
"As a member of ATAP for more than 20 years, I have always found the seminars to be an excellent resource for my tax and bookkeeping business. When I first joined, I had been in business for just two years and felt “like an island” business-wise. Attending seminars has provided me with the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals and sit in on information-packed sessions that deal with current issues in tax, accounting, best business practices and other current issues."
- Diane Elliott, member since 2000
We hope you will join us in growing this community of peers.
