Upcoming BDO Event – Ontario Agriculture Roadshow

BDO is actively involved in farm communities and agribusiness throughout Ontario and would like to invite you to a complimentary special information session on key topics that affect our farm community.  

Keynote: “Because I love you list”. Get your business in order today because you don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Angie Fox, who farms at Eddystone, MB and Maggie Van Camp from Blackstock, ON, will share their experiences, as they manage their families and their farms—alone. Prepare to be inspired by these farm women who are working hard to triumph over tragedy.
