Canada Drives Named on The Globe and Mail’s Ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies


Sep 25, 2020

VANCOUVER, British Columbia 

Canada Drives is pleased to announce it placed 188th on the 2020 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.

Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. Canada Drives earned its spot with a three-year growth of 228%.

Since 2010, Canada Drives has been simplifying auto financing for all Canadians with its customer-friendly online platform and nationwide dealer network. The fintech company now offers a variety of financial products in Canada including mortgage solutions, personal loans, and more. This is the second year in a row that the fintech company has made the Report on Business ranking. 

Seeking to capitalize on this momentum, the Vancouver-based fintech company is priming its infrastructure in preparation for its next phase of growth. It plans to launch a significant website launch in the coming weeks that’s certain to resonate with today’s car buyer.

Established in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. It is a voluntary program; companies had to complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 400 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking. 

The full list of 2020 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at tgam.ca/TopGrowing.

“The stories of Canada’s Top Growing Companies are worth telling at any time, but are especially relevant in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “As businesses work to rebuild the economy, their resilience and innovation make for essential reading.”

“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 400 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
