What is the selection process for the CDR Top 50?
An evaluation panel consisting of CDR editorial staff and independent advisors rank the companies annually based on factors such as economic impact to the country, research & development initiatives, innovation, contribution to the nation's security, national and international contract wins, excellence of management and support of Canada’s military.
What are the requirements for consideration?
The ranked companies must meet certain requirements, including having manufacturing, R&D or service operations in Canada, to be included in the survey. Companies with representative or distribution offices only do not qualify to be included.
