Over 100 years of BDO in Canada
What began with a small office in Winnipeg over 100 years ago has grown to more than 100 locations across Canada and thousands more around the world.
BDO Canada has come a long way since founder Colonel James M. Dunwoody left Belfast for Canada, starting a firm of chartered accountants. National and international alliances were formed through a series of partnerships, helping position BDO for success in Canada. Today, we offer 4,000 professionals in offices from Vancouver to St. John’s, serving clients across many industries.
In 2021, we celebrated the significant milestone of our centennial. Throughout the year, we highlighted our history, challenges we’ve overcome, our growth, the ways we give back to our communities, our people, our leaders, and our clients that have made BDO what it is today.
Locations and strategies may have changed, but our focus has not. We remain committed to understanding our clients’ needs, fostering strong relationships through hands-on partner involvement, and delivering exceptional service. And as our clients grow, our capabilities expand with them, always in pursuit of providing the highest levels of strategic insight and technical skill.
