TORONTO, ON, September 24, 2021 – CMI Financial Group (CMI), Canada’s premier private mortgage lender, is pleased to announce it placed 178th on the 2021 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies, as published by The Globe and Mail. With a reputation for transparency and integrity, CMI provides borrowers with access to non-bank private mortgage funds and investors with alternative investment opportunities backed by Canadian residential real estate. 

Canada’s Top Growing Companies ranks Canadian businesses on their three-year revenue growth. CMI earned its spot among the 448 companies listed with robust three-year growth of 240%. This marks the second consecutive year the company has been named to this prestigious list. In 2020, CMI ranked 173rd out of 400 companies, with three-year growth of 255%. 

“We are proud and humbled to be ranked among Canada’s Top Growing Companies for the second consecutive year,” said Bryan Jaskolka, CMI founder and CEO. “Our continued growth – in the face of a global pandemic – is a testament to our commitment to innovation and service excellence, to the strength of our team, and to the growing importance of private lending as a key segment of the Canadian financial services marketplace.”

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.”
