Today Deloitte announced the winners of its Technology Fast 50, Companies-to-Watch  and Green 15 program.

Now in its 16th year, the Technology Fast 50 program recognizes Canadian technology companies for technological innovation, entrepreneurship, rapid growth and leadership.

This year the program welcomes 17 companies that are making the Fast 50 list for the first time.

Vancouver mobile event app developer QuickMobile, a newcomer to Deloitte’s 16th annual Fast 50 list, topped this year’s ranking with a growth rate of 10,444 per cent.

Placing second is Kitchener-based Miovision that creates intelligent solutions to address the challenges facing today’s global transportation networks, followed by Shopify, one of the country’s leading e-commerce website solutions from Ottawa in the third spot.

Some interesting highlights from this year’s Technology Fast 50:

  • Both PointClickCare (Wescom Solutions) and Solium have placed on the list for six years
  • CarProof and GuestLogix have each placed on the list for five consecutive years (2009-2013)
