Sam Kaner joined Crowe Soberman in 1969, the same year he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto. With little experience, Sam recalls his first day. “It was just after Labour Day and I was nervous but as soon as I met Max Soberman, I immediately felt welcomed.” Today, Sam enjoys the same warm family atmosphere and camaraderie with his colleagues. Sam has spent all his working life at the firm and credits his commitment and tenacity for his success. As a Consultant in the firm's Audit & Advisory Group, Sam spends the majority of his time in providing assurance services, as well as advising clients on all business and financial matters, particularly tax and financial planning. Sam serves clients in various sectors (both private and public), particularly real estate, manufacturing, retail, and professionals (mainly medical, legal and entertainment).

Until his five-year tenure expired, Sam was the Lead Audit Engagement Partner of RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust, the largest public REIT in the country. Sam is also a member of the firm’s core group on International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). Sam is also an associate member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

Sam is vice president of Soberman Due Diligence Inc. (“DDI”), a corporation devoted to the detection, prevention and investigation of occupational fraud, waste and abuse. DDI is equipped to provide both financial and forensic investigative and accounting services to the legal, commercial, government, financial and corporate sectors. DDI also performs due diligence procedures for clients on prospective acquisitions.
