Associations & Memberships

Advance your common purpose with strategy.

Tools to manage the business and strengthen member connections

Associations and memberships make up a unique sector in the Canadian business ecosystem but must address many of the same challenges as other industries—and capitalize on abundant opportunities.

BDO has worked with national trade, regulatory, sports associations, trade unions, and professional memberships. We start by understanding their needs and formulating strategies to help them manage reputational risks and stay relevant to their members. 

From providing recommendations to modernize business tools or better manage investments to utilizing financial modelling to strategically manage resources or assess cyber threats, we’re ready to help you help your members.
