Blanchette Van Dyk Valgardson Logue (BVVL) Chartered Accountants was started in 1992 when John Van
Dyk and Thomas Blanchette created the association Blanchette & Van Dyk. Together they recognized
that sharing their workspace, skills, and knowledge would provide clients with an enhanced service and
experience. Originally they shared an office space with another CA, but as their reputations grew so did
their practices. Expansion into a larger site became a necessity. So in 1995, with the recruitment of CA’s
G. Kevin Valgardson and Mervin Orr, Thomas and John started a new association – Blanchette Van Dyk
Valgardson Orr – and moved to a new location. The novel experiences, education, and expertise
brought by the two latest CA’s further enhanced the association’s reputation and services. This new
association carried on until Mervin Orr left in 2003.
Once again, growth of clientele and limitations of space forced the existing association to re-locate to a
new office in 2003. With the new building the association was able to expand for a second time. In
2005, new CA Brett Logue joined the group as an associate. Blanchette Van Dyk Valgardson Logue has
continued its practice at its current location in downtown Lethbridge since 2003.
