After 30 years on Broadway in Orangeville, BDO Canada LLP decided it was time for a move.

The old location was, well, getting old, and looking to the future the company decided to freshen up their work space and provide a new, more welcoming venue for both staff and their valued customers.

BDO held a reception and ceremonial ribbon cutting to officially open the new office at their First Street location, formerly occupied by the National Bank..

They moved into the new location in July and spent a couple of months getting settled before the official grand opening on September 13.

BDO is a professional services firm providing a broad range of services from year end financial statements, tax return preparation, to a myriad of advisory services all designed to help their clients be successful.

“We made the move here because we wanted to change our image and the layout of our office,” explained Dean Elliot, managing partner central Canada.

“Our facility on Broadway was a little dated and it was also on two floors, which was less efficient. We wanted to have a prime location and here on First Street we’ve got that. It’s a fabulous location. We have nice bright windows and natural light. We’re all on one floor here so it’s more efficient. It’s modeled for what we want in terms of the future. We did a complete renovation and we brought in a lot of modern amenities and technology.”

For opening day the firm invited many of their clients to visit and see the new layout as well as several local dignitaries who turned out to wish the company success in the new location.

“We have a number of clients here as well as staff and partners and community referral sources and some local dignitaries. It’s a celebration of continuing our heritage of 40 years in Orangeville and a commitment to the future,” Elliot said.

BDO began in 1921 as a small office in Winnipeg and has grown to more than 100 locations across the country. One speaker described the company as “born in Winnipeg, but we have grown up in towns like Orangeville.”
