These are Canada's 500 fastest growing companies

Sep 12 2019, 9:37 am

Canadian Business has released its annual list of the fastest growing companies in Canada.

The 500 companies that made the list vary in terms of industry, size, and regions.

The companies were ranked based on five-year revenue growth (from 2013 to 2018, or fiscal 2014 to 2019). They were also required to submit a self-nominating ballot and were shortlisted based on revenue figures, which were reviewed by the Canadian Business research team.

According to Canadian Business, all of the companies that made this year’s list “are firmly united: each has demonstrated aggressive—often, exponential—revenue growth.”

For a second straight year, Vancouver-based online furniture company Article topped the list, followed by Quebec City’s Levio (their first time on the list), and Burlington-based Prodigy (who were #3 on the list last year).

And if you scroll down the list, you’ll see that Daily Hive was ranked 38th (up from 67th last year), and the 5th fastest Marketing & Media companies in Canada!
