Working with Ottawa’s successful business people since 1946

Ginsberg Gluzman Fage and Levitz, LLP is built on the entrepreneurial spirit of founders Leon Gluzman and Joseph Ginsberg. We moved into Westboro in 1959, and we’ve been here ever since—we just take up a lot more of the building than we did at the start. Today, we are one of Ottawa’s oldest locally owned and operated firms. With a team of 10 partners and over 90 staff, we rank as one of Ottawa’s largest accounting firms.

The people at GGFL have always played an active role in our community. Following in the footsteps of our founders, we are passionate about supporting the non-profit and charitable organizations that make Ottawa such a wonderful city. Our team members share this spirit; many volunteer hundreds of hours to organizations that are close to their hearts.
