PROFIT Magazine launches its 25th annual search for top growth companies and unveils expanded recognition program

Any Canadian company that’s grown by just 50 percent or more in the past five years is a serious contender for this prestigious list

Canada is a nation filled with entrepreneurial success stories. It’s time more of them received the recognition they deserve.

That’s why PROFIT Magazine is pleased to announce the launch of the PROFIT 500 and make its first call for nominations at

Formerly the PROFIT 200, the annual ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies is now in its 25th anniversary year. Fittingly, the program is expanding to celebrate and reward 500 of the country’s most entrepreneurial businesses.

But the PROFIT 500 program isn’t just bigger—it’s better in many exciting ways.

As always, winning firms will receive highly valuable national media exposure—including coverage in the Summer issue of PROFIT Magazine and year-round at—which can lead to new customers, employees and alliances. This year, companies will also benefit from special regional and industry-specific coverage, creating new opportunities to celebrate successes in key markets. For instance, the top Quebec-based businesses will be featured in L’actualité magazine and the top Atlantic firms in Atlantic Business magazine.

Winners will also receive an invitation to the PROFIT 500 CEO Summit, a conference designed exclusively for the leaders of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.

Since its launch in 1988, the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program has celebrated thousands of successful businesses and entrepreneurs, including a few household names—such as Kevin O’Leary, Robert Herjavec of Shark Tank fame, Clive Beddoe of WestJet Airlines and Tony Lacavera of Wind Mobile.

But you don’t need to be famous to apply. Any Canadian company that’s grown by just 50 percent or more in the past five years is a serious contender for this prestigious list.

Self-nominations are encouraged. Companies should declare their candidacy at before the March 31, 2013, entry deadline.
