Thu, 29th October 2015, 17:38

Technology is increasingly the backbone of business so it’s not surprising that the information technology industry takes up over a sixth of the spots on the 2015 PROFIT 500 Ranking of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies. As expected based on prior years, the achievements of a number of Canadian web hosting companies have cemented their ranking on this prestigious list.

James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business says

The PROFIT 500 represent the highest tier of entrepreneurialism in Canada.They should be lauded for the positive economic contributions they’ve made to their communities—and the entire country. They are examples of what can be accomplished with innovation, discipline and determination.


Southern Ontario based HostPapa has again made the cut and been named to the list for the third time. HostPapa made the list with five-year revenue growth of 190%. This is the third consecutive year that HostPapa has been ranked.

HostPapa’s continuous efforts towards achieving customer happiness are clearly visible through various new ideas and concepts. Most recently the host has decided to include the exclusive free 30-minute one-on-one support session with an expert to address any concerns or technical challenges their customers might face. In fact, HostPapa is the only company in this space to offer this type of service.

Jamie Opalchuk, Founder and CEO of HostPapa says:

We are excited to make the PROFIT 500 list of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies for the third consecutive year. Our customers are essential to this success and the dedication of our staff to customer satisfaction was the key to these positive results. We’re excited to be regularly launching new services that enable us to triumph as one of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.


Also based in Southern Ontario, CentriLogic ranked 72 on the list with five-year revenue growth of 1,005%. This achievement follows several recent milestones for the managed hosting firm, which provides co-location, cloud computing, managed services, and advanced IT outsourcing solutions. Recently, the company opened a 28,000 square foot state-of-the-art data center in Mississauga, Ontario.

Robert Offley, President and CEO of CentriLogic:

Canada has played a pivotal role in our success globally and it’s exciting to achieve this growth alongside so many other accomplished Canadian businesses. It’s an honour to be included on the PROFIT 500 for the second consecutive year.

Based in Montreal, CloudOps achieved a five-year revenue growth of 300%. CloudOps ranked in position 204. It's the third consecutive year that CloudOps has made the grade.
