Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. The awards are granted on four levels:
- Canada’s Best Managed Companies new winner (one of the new winners selected each year);
- 2) Canada’s Best Managed Companies winner (award recipients that have re-applied and successfully retained their Best Managed designation for two additional years, subject to annual operational and financial review);
- 3) Gold Standard winner (after three consecutive years of maintaining their Best Managed status, these winners have demonstrated their commitment to the program and successfully retained their award for 4-6 consecutive years);
- 4) Platinum Club member (winners that have maintained their Best Managed status for seven years or more).
Program sponsors are Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
