Written by PROFIT Staff

What do WestJet, BlackBerry, Freedom Mobile and Garda World Security have in common? Aside from being classic Canadian entrepreneurial success stories, they’re all past winners of the PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.

Now is the chance for your booming business to join their ranks!

For the 29th year, PROFIT is ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies based—as always—on five-year revenue growth. There’s also the companion STARTUP 50 ranking of Canada’s Top New Growth Companies to celebrate the successes of younger businesses. Nominations for both rankings are open until May 31, 2017.

There are many benefits to participation: PROFIT 500 and STARTUP 50 winners will not only get year-round exposure on and, but also editorial coverage in a special report in Maclean’s magazine, reaching more than 2.6 million readers from coast to coast. This is valuable exposure that can attract new customers, employees and partners to your business. Also, we’ll be ranking firms by region and sector, creating new opportunities for your business to be celebrated within its key markets.

The CEOs of winning companies will earn the opportunity to attend the PROFIT 500 CEO Summit, an exclusive event for the leaders of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. In addition, winners will have access to help promoting their achievement, including use of the PROFIT 500 logo and assistance with PR material. Finally, winners get the reward of knowing—and sharing—that their firms are among Canada’s entrepreneurial elite.

You can’t win if you don’t apply. If you think your company might be a contender, please check out and to submit a ballot. (If you have any questions about the ranking, please consult our FAQ or contact the PROFIT 500 research team.)
