The Top 1000
Come celebrate 30 years with us this July: we have something special in store for you! The Top 1000 is Canada’s most complete and most trusted ranking of financial performance.

We tell readers what they WANT to know: Namely, how much money the country’s biggest companies — and top CEOs — make. We also tell investors what they NEED to know. That includes comprehensive, easy to follow charts of the biggest stock market winners (and losers), fastest-growing companies and those that provide the most bang per buck. While other publications do some of these things, we do it all in one tidy package, delivered in the same award-winning format that has made Report on Business magazine the leader in its field, year in, year out.
