The work they do may vary, but without the professional services firms on the 2016 PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies, many of the country’s businesses wouldn’t function.

The 29 professional services firms on this year’s ranking grew their revenues an average of 415% between 2010 and 2015, creating an additional 2,952 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs over that period. Collectively they employed 5,525 full-time and 1,086 part-time employees in 2015.
