Dear read­ers:

Wel­come to the 13th edi­tion of the Ottawa Busi­ness Jour­nal’s Book of Lists, a quick and handy ref­er­ence to the city’s largest com­pa­nies and other use­ful busi­ness data.

This is­sue,which fea­tures 33 cat­e­gories rep­re­sent­ing more than 600 in­di­vid­ual list­ings,will no doubt pro­vide a host of in­for­ma­tion whether you’re looking for cus­tomers,sup­pli­ers,pro­fes­sional ser­vices or are sim­ply in­ter­ested in see­ing where your busi­ness ranks among its peers. The Book of Lists is the de­fin­i­tive source for busi­ness list­ings in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal.

This year’s edi­tion fea­tures ev­ery­thing from the re­gion’s top ac­count­ing and law firms,com­mer­cial real­tors and meet­ing and con­ven­tion spa­ces to in­for­ma­tion of gen­eral in­ter­est such as the largest fed­eral con­tracts, construction projects,ven­ture cap­i­tal deals and Unit­edWay fundrais­ing cam­paigns.

And near the back of the book,we again re­cap the re­gion’s most per­ti­nent eco­nomic in­di­ca­tors in a se­ries of easy-to-read graphs.

The Book of Lists is a con­stant work in progress that wouldn’t be pos­si­ble without the co-op­er­a­tion of the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity,and as such I’d like to thank the hun­dreds of or­ga­ni­za­tions that re­sponded to our re­quests for in­for­ma­tion.Without their will­ing­ness to pro­vide up-to­date and ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion,this pub­li­ca­tion would not be pos­si­ble.

Many thanks,as well,to our hard­work­ing and ded­i­cated staff in­clud­ing re­searchers Christina Davies,Peter Kovessy,El­iz­a­beth How­ell and Krys­tle Chow,and­pro­duc­tion­man­agerPat­tiMo­ran.

Keepthe Book of Lists handy through­out the year as a busi­ness di­rec­tory,buyer’s guide or re­search tool.We’re cer­tain you will find it to be a valu­able and ver­sa­tile re­source.
