Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs. It rewards privately-owned and managed Canadian companies that demonstrate continual excellence in innovative management and business performance. Despite a fluctuating economy, winners, this year, continued to thrive by leveraging their understanding of today’s market and investing aggressively in technology and talent to inspire growth and maintain their long-term success. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel that examines overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout organization, and talent.

“The Best Managed network represents the highest class of Canadian business, and it is truly the backbone of the Canadian economy,” said Mike Runia, Ontario Managing Partner, Deloitte and co-leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
