BCG Gamma to Launch in Canada

The Boston Consulting Group's Data Science Arm to Be Unveiled at the International Economic Forum of the Americas in Montreal

MONTREAL –The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), one of the world’s leading management consulting firms, will unveil the Canadian division of BCG GAMMA, its advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence and data science practice, at the International Economic Forum of the Americas in Montreal on June 13. With this launch in Canada, BCG GAMMA will bring competitive advantage to the intersection of data science, technology, people, and business.

“Canada presents an incredible opportunity for BCG to further establish its GAMMA practice. We want to rapidly scale AI-enabled opportunities for clients and the business community, and with Canada’s deep talent pools and sophisticated tech ecosystems, we see Toronto and Montreal as perfect locations to drive this transformative change,” said Sylvain Duranton, the global head of BCG GAMMA and a senior partner and managing director at BCG.

Duranton will be one of the speakers at the International Economic Forum of the Americas in Montreal, where he’ll join the plenary session on competing in the age of artificial intelligence and discuss the launch of BCG GAMMA in Canada on June 13.

“Our mission is to help Canadian companies become more globally competitive by accelerating their pace of delivery and building the required AI capabilities to sustain much higher levels of performance,” said Matt MacKenzie, a BCG partner and managing director and the head of BCG GAMMA in Canada.

“In Canada, our growing team of data scientists and business consultants will focus on co-creating solutions with clients at scale to unlock opportunity and build their capabilities. What’s exciting is that the more we adopt AI, the better we support Canadian business in carving out a new standard of excellence in Canada.”

The launch of BCG GAMMA in Canada comes amid ongoing investment growth in data science and AI among Canadian businesses, particularly in the financial services, health care, and e-commerce sectors. Ottawa, for its part, has earmarked $125 million over the next five years for its Pan-Canadian Artificial Intelligence Strategy.

BCG’s team supported SCALE.AI, the Canadian AI-powered supply chain consortium that was selected by the government as one of the five winning industry-led proposals for its Innovation Superclusters Initiative.

Marc Gilbert, a senior partner and managing director at BCG in Montreal, added, “We are proud to have been a key driver of the SCALE.AI initiative, which is a promising engine for socioeconomic growth in Canada. With BCG Gamma, we see the immense value-add that artificial intelligence is bringing to our clients and their ecosystems.”
