BDO Lixar is now BDO Digital

Toronto (ON) — BDO Canada is proud to announce the launch of BDO Digital, our technology advisory business focused on helping organizations succeed in their digital transformation strategies.  

Completing the integration of BDO Lixar with BDO Canada marks a significant milestone since the acquisition of Lixar (as it was then known) closed in March 2020. There have been many new additions to the team over the past four years that has made BDO Digital one of the leading technology advisory firms in Canada. 

“As one of the co-founders of Lixar, I’m proud to see how far the firm has come over the last 23 years, especially as part of BDO,” says Emmanuel Florakas, Partner and National Leader of Data & AI at BDO Digital. “I’m excited for what the future holds as we continue to harness the full potential of technology for our clients.”

BDO Digital in Canada has more than 500 employees and more than 1,300 clients across the country. The firm is also one of Microsoft’s leading technology delivery partners, implementing a wide range of technology solutions, including customized Gen AI applications to some of BDO Canada’s most innovative enterprise clients. BDO Digital has received multiple awards, such as the 2023 Microsoft Security Partner of the Year and the 2023 AI Impact Award. The firm also has strong alliance partnerships with many other companies, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Oracle, and Ceridian. 

“From artificial intelligence to cybersecurity, we’re able to help clients of all sizes with their business needs and help them gain a competitive advantage,” explains Rishan Lye, Canadian leader of BDO Digital. “Our team has grown, and we have built up a range of digital capabilities to support organizations in a constantly changing environment. We believe in technology’s ability to help clients and their employees thrive.”

“The launch of BDO Digital in Canada is significant for our current and future clients,” adds Bruno Suppa, CEO of BDO Canada. “The demand for technology is advancing at a rapid pace and we are committed to supporting our clients in Canada, and globally. With operations in more than 160 countries, our collaborative approach can help organizations achieve the unthinkable.”
