• BDO History

    Over many years and across many countries, our purpose
    remains the same: to deliver exceptional client service.

Over 90 years of cultivating relationships

What began with a small office in Winnipeg over 90 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, joining a firm of chartered accountants. National and international alliances were formed through a series of partnerships that resulted in the BDO name. Today, we offer 3,000 professionals in offices from Vancouver to St. John’s, serving more than 50,000 clients.

Locations and strategies may have changed, but our focus has not. We remain committed to fostering strong relationships through hands-on partner involvement and exceptional service tailored to our clients’ needs. And as our clients grow, our network grows with them, always in pursuit of providing the highest levels of strategic insight and technical skill.
