24 years of recognizing Canada’s leading technology companies. Do you have what it takes?

Deloitte’s Technology, Media and Telecommunication’s team is proud to launch the 2021 Technology Fast 50 program. The awards are presented in five distinct categories that characterize and define the unique strengths of Canadian innovation.

1. Enterprise 15
This leadership category recognizes enterprise-level fastest-growing technology, media, and telecommunications companies by revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation. The category identifies the top 15 companies with a minimum revenue of $10 million in 2017 and a minimum revenue of $25 million in 2020.

2. Technology Fast 50
This category is a ranking of Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology, media, and telecommunications companies by revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation. The winning companies must be able to prove minimum revenues of $50 thousand in 2017 and $5 million in 2020.

3. Companies-to-Watch
The companies to watch category highlights Canadian technology companies with the potential to be future Technology Fast 50™ candidates. The winners of this year’s companies to watch category must have a minimum of $50 thousand in 2018.

4. North American Technology Fast 500
This ranks the 500 technology companies in the United States and Canada that post the highest revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation. Revenue is measured in USD and not CAD.

*New this year*

5. Clean Technology
This category is a ranking of Canada’s top clean innovators providing processes, goods or services that reduces environmental impacts. The companies will be ranked by their revenue-growth percentage over their last four years of operation. The winning companies must be able to prove minimum revenues of $50 thousand in 2017 and $5 million in 2020.

Clean technology is defined as any process, good or service that reduces environmental impacts through:

  • Environmental protection activities that prevent, reduce or eliminate pollution or any other degradation of the environment;
  • Resource management activities that result in more efficient use of natural resources, thus safeguarding against their depletion; or
  • The use of goods that have been adapted to be significantly less energy or resource intensive than the industry standard.

Eligibility criteria for companies applying to this category will be the same as Fast 50; the majority of the company’s revenues MUST come from products or services that have a positive environmental impact in the following areas:

  • Carbon emissions reduction potential
  • Resources circulation (reduce, reuse and recycle)
  • Environmental preservation and safety
