Canada-Wide Recruitment Agency Listed Among Top ICT Companies in the Country
Ottawa, ON, May 31, 2017 – Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle), one of Canada’s leading recruitment agencies, is proud to have once again been named among the top Canadian ICT companies in this year’s Branham300 listing. The list, which was published today at www.branham300.com, ranks Eagle in three different categories: Top 10 ICT Staffing Companies (#8), Top 25 Canadian ICT Professional Services Companies (#17), and the overall Top 250 Canadian ICT Companies (#54).
According to the Branham300 website, it is “the premiere listing of Canada’s top public and private ICT companies, ranked by revenue.” Hundreds of companies submit applications to the Branham Group who performs a comprehensive review to confirm the details and narrow down the top information and communication technology companies in Canada. Eagle was ranked based on revenues for its most recent fiscal year, which ended in September 2016.
The results of the Branham300 application process extend beyond rankings as the Branham Group uses the statistics it receives to provide insight into Canada’s ICT Industry. This year, the study proved the country’s IT sector to be strong, with aggregate revenues of the top 250 companies growing 9.6% to $105.3 billion. Not only is this a record, but the year-over-year growth rate also nearly doubled from the previous year. Furthermore, 73% of the companies listed experienced some sort of growth in the previous year, with 54% of them achieving double-, or even triple-digit growth. Regionally, Alberta organizations saw the highest growth rate, with 22.3%, followed by Ontario (10.8%), Quebec (3.9%) and BC (3.9%). Of the four sub-sectors tracked by Branham — Software, X Service Providers, ICT Professional Services and ICT Hardware and Infrastructure — all saw similar performance to previous years, including the ICT Hardware and Infrastructure sector which continues to experience declines in revenue.
“Canada’s ICT industry continues to show a bright future with strong potential. The Branham300 showcases some of Canada’s best organizations contributing to the industry’s success, and we’re proud to be a part of it,” said Eagle’s CEO, Janis Grantham. “Congratulations to all of the companies listed this year.”

At the time, the company had earnings of $18 million in revenue and 150 contractors on assignment. Today, Eagle boasts $136 million in annual revenue and approximately 1000 contractors on assignment.
