Joe Collins, CPA, CA
My purpose is to help entrepreneurs succeed. I love bringing financial clarity and peace of mind through easy-to-use systems that integrate into everyday life. The best part about my job is how much I get to learn from our customers. It's very humbling and always pushes me to be better.
I graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Commerce, obtained my Professional Accounting Certificate from Camosun College and hold a CPA, CA designation.

I love helping small businesses succeed by providing client education, implementing easy-to-use accounting systems and timely financial reporting advice. Taxes? I can help with those too.
I graduated from Camosun College with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Accounting and hold a CPA, CA designation.
With the guidance of my team, I am learning how to support small businesses with timely information so that they can succeed and reach their goals. I am eager to learn and grow with Avalon.
As well as working, I am studying at Camosun. I am on my way to completing my Bachelor of Business Administration - Accounting degree. After that, I plan to pursue my CPA designation.
Offering clients great service and providing them with insightful data represent two things I love about cloud-based accounting. I’m passionate as both a problem solver and solution seeker, and manage on-boarding here at Avalon. It’s my privilege to be tasked not only with training our clientele, but also learning from them!
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science & Law from Carleton University in Ottawa. Alongside my work here, I’m simultaneously in pursuit of my CPA designation.
Our mission is to help build amazingly successful businesses
Take the pain out of compliance work
GST filings, corporate tax returns, payroll remittances. These are neither fun nor sexy. That’s why we build systems around them and take them out of your hands.
Our value is in empowering you to make decisions with knowledge. We take the time to teach and learn your business.
Give you back your time
If you are doing your bookkeeping and accounting, what could you be doing instead? Our goal is to give you the time to focus on the things that are impactful to your business or personal life.
Provide good information
We provide you excellent, up to date information about your business to make effective decisions. We have lots of ideas about what businesses should be concerned about, but we want to hear your ideas too. Then, we want to get you the information you need.
Provide fixed prices
There are a lot of unknowns in business. We want one less thing to worry about. You can pick up the phone or schedule a call with us without having to worry about hourly billing.
But we use it wisely. It’s not a cure-all, but we leverage it in a way that we can stay more connected with you and give you the most up-to-date and accurate information possible.
We find a better way.
We care and show it.
We do what we say we are going to do.
We succeed and fail together.
No squirrels allowed.
We bring a brisk and cheerful willingness to all we do.
We value the ridiculous and amusing.
