Top 1000 Companies

The companies listed here are the 1,000 largest publicly traded corporations measured by assets. They are ranked according to their after-tax profits in their most recent fiscal year, excluding extraordinary gains or losses. When companies state their results in U.S. dollars, we do the same, but rankings are made based on the Canadian dollar equivalent.
