Top 1000

Ranking Canada's top 1000 public companies by profit Add to ...

The companies listed here are the 1,000 largest publicly traded corporations, measured by assets. They are ranked according to their after-tax profits in their most recent fiscal year, excluding extraordinary gains or losses. When companies state their results in U.S. dollars or euros, we do the same, but rankings are based on the Canadian dollar equivalents.


The Top 1000 rankings in ROB Magazine and this website only provide a limited snapshot of data for the top 1000 companies in Canada. The full database provides a complete guide to corporate performance in Canada, with comprehensive shareholder information and can be purchased here. This year, Report on Business magazine is offering four individual products for download. Compatible with most spreadsheet software programs, the download files are indispensable tools for business development, sales targeting, and investing.
