Companies that do not issue publicly traded shares in Canada are a huge part of the economy. Many are subsidiaries of multinationals, or are family-owned or co-ops. We rank them by revenue, the one significant financial measure they all disclose.
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.
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.
