The Boston Consulting Group is an influential and trusted source of strategic advice in Canada, serving many of the country’s largest corporations across all sectors and geographies. We partner with our clients to develop unique insights, create lasting impact, and drive fundamental transformation.
Working out of BCG’s offices in Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary, our nearly 300 employees bring expertise from across all industries—including the consumer goods, retail, financial services, industrial goods, technology, media, energy, and private equity industries. In Canada, BCG’s business has achieved double-digit annual growth over the past decade. Nearly 90% of our work is repeat business—a testament to the results we have achieved for our clients.
For seven consecutive years, the firm has been named among the top five of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. We are proud to have been named one of Canada’s Most Admired Cultures in 2016 by Waterstone Human Capital and one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2017. Numerous external and independent organizations have also recognized BCG as an employer of choice.
At BCG, we bring strategic excellence and a focus on creating meaningful impact to all our clients. We not only help our commercial clients succeed but also collaborate with the public sector to address the greatest challenges Canada faces as a country and society. BCG mobilizes action and acts as a catalyst for change on critical issues such as Canadian prosperity, successful cities, attracting foreign investment, and digital innovation.
BCG’s dedication to these goals is evident in several examples:
To celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, we at BCG in Canada have decided to examine Canada’s current and future prospects. To contribute to the national dialogue, help shape the country’s agenda, and identify the greatest opportunities for Canada, BCG established the Centre for Canada’s Future in 2017. The centre is a nonprofit venture dedicated to serving as a catalyst that moves Canada forward by identifying, analyzing, and leading action on the nation’s greatest opportunities.
Created to inspire the legacy of David Pecaut, the Pecaut Centre brings the right minds together to make a real difference for Canada. The Pecaut Centre and its venture philanthropy arm, LEAP, are incubated and housed at BCG and partner closely with our firm. In 2017, LEAP was selected as the support partner for the Google.org Impact Challenge. The challenge grants $5 million to Canadian nonprofit organizations that are using technology to tackle the world's biggest social challenges.
BCG partnered with BMO to define a plan for revitalizing Montreal. Working in collaboration, we conducted a study of similar cities that rebounded from a decline and identified tools for enhancing Montreal’s economic performance. The joint study included a thorough analysis of the city’s economic health and of revitalization ideas from approximately 50 of Montreal’s leaders from all spheres of the community.
Kilian Berz, a BCG senior partner in our Toronto office, has been appointed Special Advisor, Foreign Investment, to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Drawn by the unparalleled opportunity to bring more foreign investment into Canada, Kilian is helping Prime Minister Trudeau make the compelling case to potential investors that Canada has a resilient economy, outranks the G7 in growth, and is a great place to live and work.
Throughout the world, BCG demonstrates its deep commitment to driving social impact and to changing the lives of people by contributing to the communities where we do business. Through pro bono projects and volunteer work, we drive projects by deploying senior consulting skills to tackle issues and scale solutions.
In Canada, these investments have included playing a critical role in helping Pathways to Education grow and bring its life-changing program to more neighbourhoods in need. Our collaboration has helped the organization boost graduation rates by 75% on average and generate a social return valued at $24 for every $1 invested.
The employees in BCG’s Canadian offices are as diverse and driven as our nation itself. We come from more than 80 different academic backgrounds across some 70 universities, represent more than 15 nationalities, and collectively speak more than 30 languages.
