Meet Elena

Nice to meet you. My name is Elena Ivanova. I founded Piligrim Accounting in 2003 as part of my journey working with passionate entrepreneurs. I consider accounting as my art.

I love figuring out creative and efficient approaches to presenting numbers in ways that save you time and money. With over 20 years of experience, I’m here to provide accounting services and consulting for business owners like you.

You can read my full story here, and book a consultation to see if we can work together.

What We Care About

We believe that there are people with beating hearts behind the numbers. We care about human connection above all. Our clients are family.

Accounting Technology

Piligrim Accounting was one of the first accounting firms in Canada to offer cloud-based bookkeeping.

Using cloud-based accounting, we can manage your books remotely and provide you with ongoing reports so your business can be profitable.

We will make it easy to use.

We use QuickBooks Online and financial tools to streamline your bookkeeping and tax preparation.

You will get help to use technology to improve your business accounting and ultimately help you grow your company.

Frequent Questions & Answers

Yes! It’s so much easier to go virtual. Imagine having all of your accounting files online where you have immediate access at all times—no more spending five hours on a random Tuesday searching for that bank statement from 2005.

However, we understand if you’re new to technology and will support you during the transition and set-up. You’ll thank us later, we promise.

We charge what we believe that the experience we’ve accumulated over two decades is worth. Simply said, we aren’t cheap, but we provide great value. 

We work with clients who value our hard work and are happy to pay for our service. In return, our clients get access to trustworthy and professional accounting and bookkeeping services. 

Our clients know we have their backs. We are in this business to serve you long term, not to make a quick buck. If you’re looking for a cheap accounting service, we’re not the right fit for you. 

If you’re a Canadian small business owner, startup business owner or an individual, we can help! 

  • A small business owner (1-30 employees) – we help you organize your books and records, file corporate taxes and deal with CRA on your behalf. 
  • Startup business owner – We help set up your books correctly and get your business going in compliance with CRA. File corporate taxes and teach you how to work with accounting and document management software saving you time, money and headache down the road. 
  • Individuals – we help you with personal tax & HST filing and self-employed income tax filing so that you’re always compliant with CRA.
