WorldReach is one of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies

September 28, 2020 / Ottawa, ON, Canada

WorldReach is thrilled to announce making the top third on The Globe and Mail’s second-annual ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.

“The stories of Canada’s Top Growing Companies are worth telling at any time, but are especially relevant in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “As businesses work to rebuild the economy, their resilience and innovation make for essential reading.”

WorldReach celebrates a three-year growth of 404%! This represents the second highest growth rate of all 19 Ottawa-based companies on the list this year and is certainly an indication of a reinvigorating of the high-tech sector in the National Capital Region.

“The Globe and Mail’s Top Growing Companies designation shows that our strategy and execution by all staff has been outstanding,” Gordon Wilson, President and CEO, stated. “As the world continues to adapt to the global pandemic, there is accelerated interest in going digital. WorldReach expects to see further growth in 2021, particularly with our digital ID verification solutions and our ability to support safe, seamless and touchless border programs – essential to the world’s economic recovery efforts and return to travel.”

Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. It is a voluntary program; companies had to complete an in-depth application process in order to qualify. In total, 400 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking. 

The full list of 2020 winners is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at

“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 400 businesses on this year’s Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” says Phillip Crawley, Publisher and CEO of The Globe and Mail. “Their growth helps to make Canada a better place, and we are proud to bring their stories to our readers.”
