BDO Canada, a mid-market accounting and consulting firm, has signed on as the first-ever elite-level sponsor of Golf Canada.

After a year as the official business and professional services sponsor of Golf Canada, BDO has expanded its commitment to an enhanced multi-year sponsorship.

As an elite sponsor, BDO will continue to serve as presenting sponsor of Golf Canada’s National Amateur Championships, as well as extend its impact across the sporting non-profit’s entire operation, including programming, professional championships, volunteerism, and philanthropy.

BDO’s partnership includes: title sponsorship of the volunteer program at the National Open Championships and National Amateur Championships; expanded hospitality investment at the National Open Championships; naming rights for the newly established National Golf League; and a trustee-level investment in the First Tee – Canada youth development program.

“We are thrilled to announce our expanded relationship with Golf Canada, a remarkable connection that embodies our shared dedication to community, progress, and growth. As the proud, and first-ever, Elite Level Sponsor, we join forces with esteemed Canadian brands, collectively dedicated to elevating the sport of golf to new horizons,” said Bruno Suppa, CEO of BDO Canada.

Golf Canada is the national sports federation and governing body for golf in the country, representing more than 319,000 golfers and 1,435 member clubs.

“BDO has shown the ability to help transform businesses across Canada to help them achieve new heights,” said Laurence Applebaum, CEO of Golf Canada. “We could not be more excited that through this elevated sponsorship BDO will power Golf Canada to achieve greater success, enhance our sport and volunteer programming, and creating a community impact for youth through their involvement with First Tee – Canada.”

BDO was previously a corporate sponsor of Hockey Canada, but paused its sponsorship last year after news broke of an alleged sexual assault committed by World Junior team members in 2018.
