How’d we get our data?

Using NASDAQ’s real-time screening data and TMX Money’s Investor Discovery tools we analyzed Canadian companies trading on all major U.S. and Canadian stock exchanges, as well as the TSX Venture Exchange. We then sorted by market capitalization for each of the ten provinces. Each company must be headquartered in their corresponding province to be #1. Data is as of end of trading Tuesday, August 18, 2015.
