The List is Out: Here Are The Fastest Growing Retail Companies In Canada

Every year, Canadian Business releases their list of the fastest growing companies in Canada.

Every year, Canadian Business releases their list of the fastest growing companies in Canada. The list is dubbed the Growth 500 and it’s based on five-year revenue growth.  The list looks at a wide range of sectors and ranks each business in the sector they are in and compared to every business in Canada.

As we love to dive into all things retail we thought we should share the Growth 500’s list of top performing retail brands. Some are obvious, others are surprising. The best thing about this list is that even if you are in the industry you can discover things you didn’t know. For example, did you know there is a company based in Toronto that makes skins for your electronic devices and rakes in upwards on $20 million a year? Neither did we.

Check out the list below and discover the big movers and shakers in retail.
