TOP 1000 ISSUE: ROB magazine ranks Canada's largest publicly traded companies
TORONTO, June 23 /CNW/ - This Friday, Report on Business magazine unveils the 26th annual Report on Business Top 1000. The Top 1000 ranks Canadian publicly traded companies by the most important metric of all: profit. This issue also includes an in-depth look at five sectors: mining, finance, retail, telecom, and oil and gas.
While some of Canada's biggest players performed as if the recession never happened, credit scarcity and red ink are the recurring themes of this year's Top 1000. Report on Business columnist Brian Milner examines the capital crunch in the July/August issue, available Friday, June 25.
