Meet Ottawa’s 10 fastest-growing companies

Fastest-growing companies 2023

Every year, the Ottawa Business Journal launches a competition to determine the city’s top-10 fastest growing companies. These companies disclose their annual revenues for the past three fiscal years to determine their rate of growth. The data is verified by accounting partners, tabulated and the list is unveiled.

The 2023 list includes ecommerce firms, technology startups, a mergers and acquisitions specialist, an accountant and a marketing agency.

Looking at OBJ’s top-10 list, it’s obvious the 2023 recipients have pushed themselves beyond their comfort zones to pursue their big goals — and they’re seeing their businesses grow as a result. This list is a great snapshot of what is possible for businesses in the city.
