2022 Canadian Business New Innovators List

The Canadian Shield - Canadian Business New Innovators List

The Canadian Shield is honoured to share that we have been named as a winner of the 2022 New Innovators List that recognizes Canada's most progressive companies. 

About the New Innovators List

Presented by Canadian Business and the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (BII+E), the New Innovators List celebrates 50 trailblazing companies that are challenging the status quo and redefining what it means to be truly innovative—with great products and services, progressive leadership, and forward-thinking social and environmental initiatives. Unveiled at canadianbusiness.com on February 7, and in the Winter 2022 issue of Canadian Business magazine, the inaugural list recognizes an overall Top 10 New Innovators, plus an additional 40 companies that excel in the following categories:

  • Environment: planet-first businesses that show how green is good
  • Innovation: businesses that foster a culture of challenging the status quo
  • People: companies that prioritize—and track—diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Impact Intentionality: organizations that really think through what they do and how it affects the world


The first-ever CB New Innovators List was produced in partnership with the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (BII+E). Companies applied for consideration in August and September of 2021 via an online application survey. Participating companies were evaluated by Canadian Business and the BII+E research team on several qualitative and quantitative criteria related to innovation, environment, impact intentionality and diversity, equity and inclusion. Nominations for the 2023 New Innovators List will open in the summer of 2022.
