The companies listed here are the 1,000 largest publicly traded Canadian 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, 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 most comprehensive database of Canadian corporate financial information is available for purchase in spreadsheet format here. This year we have improved on what we have offered in previous years in two separate packages based on whether your needs are research or sales prospecting. Find in-depth financial and contact information, total compensation for every CEO on the Top 1000 and more.
Notes For ranking purposes, figures from companies that report in foreign currencies have been converted to Canadian dollars and partial-year results have been annualized. Foreign currencies are converted at the end of the relevant fiscal period for balance sheet items and at the average exchange rate for the relevant period for earnings items. Share-price calculations are based on closing share prices on the companies’ balance sheet dates.
3. Figures have been annualized in latest year.
4. Figures have been annualized in previous year.
5. Figures have been annualized in previous three through five years.
