Ottawa’s e-commerce darling, a slew of local tech and professional services firms and one bagel shop all make appearances on Canadian Business magazine’s latest ranking of Canada’s fastest-growing companies.
The 2019 Growth 500 list, released Thursday, includes 25 firms from the National Capital Region in its annual ranking of companies based on their five-year revenue growth.
Topping the list locally was Shopify at No. 33. The e-commerce firm’s 2,036 per cent growth rate over the past five years is impressive enough, but Shopify also stands out as one of only two companies to record more than $1 billion in revenue and still make the fastest-growing list.
