Cheatsheet: 69 BC firms make Globe and Mail’s top growing companies list

Vancouver is BC's most-represented city with 36 companies; Victoria is second with five companies on the list.

Two weeks ago Ravi Kahlon, BC’s minister of jobs, economic recovery and innovation, celebrated the August Labour Force Results. He had good reason to. In August, BC had added 14,400 full-time jobs, with 13,600 of them going to women.

“B.C. has one of the lowest unemployment rates and a job recovery rate of 101.1%,” he boasted, “leading Canada as the only province with employment above pre-pandemic levels for the third straight month.”

Today, we’re getting a snapshot of some of the companies driving this job growth via the Globe and Mail’s Canada’s Top Growing Companies 2021 list.
