Coming Soon:
The 2017 PROFIT 500 and STARTUP 50!

Nominations are now closed for the 2017 rankings. The full PROFIT 500 and STARTUP 50 lists will be released on September 14, 2017. Good luck to all applicants!

Entering its 29th year of ranking Canadian companies on five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 500 is far and away Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement. Winners join an elite community of our country’s most successful, vibrant and important businesses.

There are many, many reasons to enter, including valuable editorial exposure in Maclean's magazine (reaching 2.6 million readers from coast to coast) and at, plus the opportunity to attend the 2017 PROFIT 500 CEO Summit, an exclusive event designed specifically for the leaders of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies.

Too young for the PROFIT 500? Not to worry! We also celebrate younger companies (that is, businesses that are less than five years old) with strong two-year revenue growth with the STARTUP 50, a special companion ranking dedicated to Canada’s Top New Growth Companies!

“Being on the [PROFIT 500] raised awareness of my company among large-scale firms, which we were able to secure contracts with in the last year or two. They see that we’re growing greatly and have been noticed by PROFIT.”
