Mountain Sports Distribution places No. 301 on The Globe and Mail’s third annual ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies


MOUNTAIN SPORTS DISTRIBUTION is pleased to announce it placed No. 301 on the 2021 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies.

Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian companies on three-year revenue growth. MSD earned its spot with three-year growth of 112

In a tumultuous and uncertain year for retail, shipping and distribution, Mountain Sports Distribution had to be in a position to adapt and pivot to meet demands and restrictions. Says President and CEO Chuck Gorton, “we were in untested water this year, but are fortunate to be a quick-to-move and nimble company that can make necessary changes to acclimate to changing situations. I’m very proud of our team and partners and their work this past year. We’re honoured with this distinction.”

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, 448 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking.

The full list of 2021 winners, and accompanying editorial coverage, is published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online.

“As we look toward the future, Canada’s Top Growing Companies offer both inspiration and practical insights for other firms facing similar challenges,” says James Cowan, Editor of Report on Business magazine. “The entrepreneurs behind these companies are smart, tenacious and unwavering in their commitment to their goals.”

“Any business leader seeking inspiration should look no further than the 448 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.”
