Diamond Schmitt has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 16th year in a row, maintaining its Platinum Club designation. When it was first awarded, Diamond Schmitt was the only architecture practice to be recognized by Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

The prestigious program reviews hundreds of submissions annually from companies seeking to stand out among their competitors. Recipients of the program are distinguished for their management abilities and positive practices in workplace strategy, culture and commitment, and innovation. 

This year’s Best Managed Companies are committed to building a strong corporate culture and legacy, and actively developing their people and leadership team. To attain Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation, companies apply annually and go through a rigorous assessment led by a multi-disciplinary judging panel. They are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, capability and innovation, culture and commitment, as well as governance and financial performance.  

With this year’s cohort of 27 new winners, the program now includes 496 Best Managed Companies. Of these, 90 have attained Gold Standard (having maintained their Best Managed designation for four to six consecutive years), and 317 are Platinum Club members (having maintained their status for seven consecutive years or more). 

“Year after year, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to witness and be part of the remarkable accomplishments of the Best Managed Companies, who exemplify the highest business standards of innovation, adaptability, and bold leadership,” says Lorrie King, national co-leader of Canada's Best Managed Companies program and partner with Deloitte Private. “Their relentless ambition, determined focus, and strategic agility have led them to remain competitive on the world stage, creating sustainable economic growth in an evolving global market. They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the outstanding work they do every day.”
