Where Are S&P/TSX Composite Companies Headquartered?

A look at where the 241 companies in Canada’s main index are headquartered.

Last Wednesday, during an online chat in our premium investment service, Stock Advisor Canada, a member asked if our team knew of any web page that would show him the S&P/TSX Composite filtered by where each company is headquartered.

We are not aware of any such data out on the internet, so we decided to power up our institutional investment software tool, S&P Capital IQ, to find out.

According to Cap IQ, there are 241 stocks in the S&P/TSX Composite index. Filtering by province:

  • 33% are based in Ontario (80)
  • 30% are based in Alberta (73)
  • 15% are based in Quebec (37)
  • 12% are based in British Columbia (29)
  • The remainder comes from other provinces or countries:
    • 6 from Manitoba
    • 5 from the United States
    • 4 from Nova Scotia
    • 2 from Saskatchewan
    • 2 from Latin America/the Caribbean
    • 1 from Newfoundland and Labrador
    • 1 from Northern Territories
    • 1 from Asia/Pacific
