Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life at Questrade, it’s always nice to receive a reminder that we’re doing things right around here. This reminder recently came to us in the form of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award. In true Questrade fashion, we won the designation for the fifth year in a row this spring, officially making us gold requalified winners!
Let's learn what Canada’s Best Managed Companies is all about
Over 20 years ago, Deloitte launched the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award to recognize excellence in Canadian business. Unlike other company awards, Best Managed became one of the few accolades that uniquely highlights the success of Canadian-owned organizations in regards to innovating technology, brand management, and strong leadership. Most importantly, this award looks at the overall performance of a company rather than limiting its success to its financial performance. After all, numbers aren’t everything. As we say here at Questrade, people matter!
That’s amazing! What does this win mean for Team Questrade?
It means our hard work pays off! Best Managed is a mark of excellence that highlights Questraders’ endless efforts and creativity. It validates the fact that we’re leaders in our industry who strive to become better, faster, and stronger year after year, no matter what curve balls are thrown our way. Supporting this sentiment of growth, our fearless leader, Edward Kholodenko, said, “Change is constant at Questrade. We are always looking to evolve and do something bigger and better for our clients. We pride ourselves on continually pushing the envelope of possibility in what was a very staid industry. We have always been at the vanguard of that revolution and will continue to be.”
On to the celebrations! How does Questrade plan on commemorating the win?
Over the years, we’ve celebrated our Best Managed win in many different ways. From sharing the good news with Canadian media outlets to asking our team what motivates them to bring their best to the office, we wear this honour loud and proud every single year! This year, some of our team members attended the annual Best Managed gala to celebrate the achievement alongside these other fantastic employers.

Platinum, baby! Best Managed inducts companies that have won the award seven years in a row into the Platinum Club. When it comes to being one of Canada’s best managed companies, this is the highest level of achievement possible, and we want it! From delivering exceptional client service to working on more innovative tech projects, Team Questrade is going to do whatever it takes to achieve platinum status.
