Dan Foster joined our club on December 11, 2014. Dan is the owner of Foster and Company Chartered Accountants formerly known to most of us and Smyth and Company Chartered Accountants.


Dan was born in Vancouver. He completed his BA and MA in English Language at UBC and a Ph.D in Linguistics at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. It was there that he met his first wife who unfortunately passed away a few years ago. They had 3 children who are now in their 20’s.

Dan made the change to accounting in 1995, and completed the Chartered Accountant Program in 1999 and he specialized in tax planning from 1999 to 2013. He bought Don Smyth’s accounting practice in November 2013 and spent several months and many long drives across Canada moving his stuff back to the wet coast from Fredericton where he had been chilling since 2002.

Dan eloped to Tofino with his now wife Caroline Smart in 2013. Caroline is a teacher-on-call with School District 85. They have 2 Rottweilers and a cat.

Please join me in welcoming Dan Foster to the Rotary Club of Port Hardy.
