In pictures: Canada's 10 most profitable public companies

Report on Business Magazine's Top 1000 rankings list Canada's 1,000 biggest public companies by profit. They are ranked according to their after-tax profits in their most recent fiscal year, excluding extraordinary gains or losses. When companies state their results in U.S. dollars or euros, we do the same, but rankings are based on the Canadian dollar equivalents. The companies are pictured here in descending order, from the most profitable to the tenth-most profitable. Find a link to the full Top 1000 rankings underneath this gallery.
