Meyers Norris  Penny, one of Canada’s largest accounting and business advisory firms, said it would merge with Montreal-based firm WSBG, effective Jan. 1, 2011.

Terms of the merger were not disclosed.

The union will give MNP its first full-service office in Quebec. The firm, which began in 1945, currently employs some 3,000 people and operates in 50 locations across Canada.

This year, MNP was recognized by the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business magazine as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada for the second consecutive year.

“We are truly excited about this merger as it marks a milestone achievement as our first full service office in Quebec, and specifically the Montreal market,” said MNP CEO Daryl Ritchie.

In July, MNP acquired 11 Canadian locations of PwC's Personal Insolvency Practice.
