Canada Executive Team

Ranking Overview Methodology

The U.S. and Canadian governments are putting supply chain resiliency at the top of their agendas. After pandemics, Russian invasions, trade bottlenecks in China and inflation, governments are waking up to the need to strengthen supply chains. President Biden has set up a taskforce to focus solely on maintaining a flow of goods, including essential shipments of pharmaceuticals and food. It’s a moment where several of the top scoring chief executives in the Institutional Investor All-Canada Executive Team are prepared to shine.

To select the members of Institutional Investor’s 2023-24 Canada Executive Team, we surveyed buy-side analysts, money managers and sell-side researchers at securities firms and financial institutions that cover the region, including those who cast and received votes in this year’s 2023 Canada Research Team survey. We asked voters to name the best chief executive officers, chief financial officers, and investor relations professionals at the companies in their coverage universes. 274 money managers and buy-side analysts and 36 sell-side researchers provided their candid feedback.

All votes are weighted by rating (five, four, three, two and one). We also asked them to rate the companies’ IR programs on the following eight performance attributes: in Services & Communication, “Authority & Credibility,” “Responsiveness,” “Earnings Calls,” “Business & Market Knowledge,” and “Virtual Meetings/Presentations”; and in Financial Disclosure: “Consistency,” “Granularity,” and “Quality & Relevance.” These ratings were aggregated to produce an overall IR Program rank for each company. Nominations for Company Board, ESG, and Investor/Analyst Event were also solicited from the voters as a separate distinction.

The overall rankings in each rankings category are based on combined buy- and sell-side votes. Separate rosters (buy side, sell side) are also available for each award classification.

To earn the designation of Most Honored Company, a company must achieve a weighted score of at least 20 for its published positions in the Best CEO, CFO, IRO, IR Program, Investor/Analyst Event, ESG, and Company Board categories. Each first-place position is worth three points; second place, two; and third place, one. In the 2023-24 Canada Executive Survey, 155 companies were nominated across 7 sectors.

To be eligible for inclusion on the 2023-24 Canada Executive Team, a company must be headquartered or have operational or executive headquarters in the region. We keep confidential the identities of the survey respondents to ensure their continuing cooperation. Voters must meet eligibility requirements, and winners must achieve a minimum vote count.
