Connecting the dots between public and private infrastructure
Infrastructure projects are critical drivers of the Canadian economy, but as the landscape evolves, their progress gets hampered by a lack of reliable data, regulatory roadblocks, and inefficient processes. As a result, public infrastructure organizations increasingly turn to private companies and investors for financing, designing, building, and operating projects.
BDO’s Infrastructure advisory practice guides clients along the entire project lifecycle, turning complex roadblocks into navigable bridges and helping establish public-private partnerships (P3s) where warranted. We take a proactive approach—from project planning, feasibility studies, commercial audits, and valuations to digital transformation, capital solutions, and claims management—but also apply reactive strategies such as expert witness litigation services when required. Our team is committed to offering strategic insights to enhance fiscal resilience, project management, and digital impact.
