MNP Indigenous Services Calendar

MNP LLP, a Canadian accounting, consulting tax firm, is calling students and graduates of Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art to submit their artwork for our 2021 Indigenous Services calendar.

Over 2,000 copies of the calendar are printed, and distributed to Band Offices, MNP’s Indigenous clients and hang in our offices from coast to coast. The calendar will feature one work from an artist and follows the Indigenous fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).

The artwork and artist bio are featured on MNP’s website for a year and the artwork and calendar are promoted when the calendar is launched. The current year’s art can be viewed at:
