I do think that Canada is made up of bright and innovative individuals. And we have been home to some of the most iconic companies that were respect around the world (Blackberry & Nortel) for their successes.
I also hear about the inroads Canadians are having in a number of industries. What I found somewhat disappointing when I looked at the ranking of the top global market capitalization was the we only had one company on the list and it was a bank.
I checked out number 2 and 3 of the largest Canadian companies by market cap and they were also banks. I just wish we had more variety and more that make the list.
If you are curious on which Canadian companies might be included in the list in the coming years then simply google “Canadian Unicorns and Narwhals”.
