DevPar Financial Consulting Ltd. (DevPar)
About Us...

We look forward to opportunities to work together with consultants, clients, and stakeholders as we bring skills and experience to a project. We appreciate the chance to form new relationships as much as we enjoy working again with established colleagues.

The firm is managed by professionals with extensive international consulting experience.
DevPar has formal systems in place for accounting, project management, quality control, and statistical analysis. Our administrative staff have backgrounds in accounting, human resource management, and office management. We are federally incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act and the firm is privately owned by our directors.

Our Goal is to produce the results expected by the client, and those include:

  • Adherence to international standards
  • Adoption of industry best practices
  • Learning from experts
  • Greater contributions from the use of technology
  • More effective organizational results
  • Enhanced efficiencies, economies, and sustainability
  • Extended reach to achieve inclusiveness
  • Increased volumes of output
  • Relevance and sustainability

These results depend on assigning the right experts to facilitate the design of improvements, confer with client representatives, and guide the implementation of changes. We work diligently to maintain large pools of proven international experts with the range of skills required to compete at the highest level. We also remain committed to maintaining the relationships established with national consulting firms located in a large number of developing countries. Finally, we work to maintain relationships with organizations and businesses with similar features to those of typical beneficiary clients; thus, we can offer a twinning 'partnership' for development.

Our History...

DevPar was established in 1992 by consultants with strong credentials in international development work. The intention was to offer services by forming consortia of experts, including developed market counterparts and national consulting firms, to share knowledge, experience, systems, and procedures.

Initially focused on capital and financial market development, the range of work has extended to public sector financial management, as well as the conduct of research, feasibility studies, monitoring, evaluations, and training. These projects have taken us around the world – mainly in developing countries and economies-in-transition. We collaborate with a large network of professional firms and consultants as called for by project requirements. We have worked for a wide range of international institutions and bilateral agencies.
