Tactical methods to jumpstart your success.

Driving growth through innovation and technology

Canada has one of the most stringent legal frameworks around cannabis distribution. As a result, retailers face unique, sector-specific compliance burdens, from strict requirements around marketing and distribution to complex tax reporting. They are also under constant pressure to provide rich and informative customer service, rapidly scale up their businesses to remain competitive, cover costly licensing fees, and find efficiencies in their operations.

BDO’s Cannabis team can empower your business to seize opportunities within the industry while helping you develop your business presence to make it attractive to investors. In addition, we can help cannabis retailers harness technology to automate critical operations, achieve customer expectations, and comply with government and environmental regulations.
