For the Fifth Straight Year, First Light Technologies Ranks on the GROWTH2020 List


Victoria, BC (October 15, 2020)

For the fifth year in a row, First Light Technologies placed on the 2020 Growth List published by Canadian Business. In it’s 32nd annual publication, this definitive ranking of Canada’s fastest-growing companies ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth.

First Light Technologies’ strong and consistent growth comes as the company has been at the forefront of solar lighting for the last 11 years. The company is a pioneer in self-contained commercial solar lights. Their approach offers the simplest way of providing outdoor lighting, coupled with overall cost savings of typically 50% or more when compared to wired lighting and no ongoing carbon emissions.

“Our consistent recognition as a top growing company is a result of the passion and dedication of our company and team”, says CEO Sean Bourquin. “We not only solve our customers’ outdoor lighting challenges, but we do it in a way that is more cost-effective and delivers sustainable lighting solutions for the future.”

“The companies on the 2020 Growth List are really exceptional. Their stories are a masterclass in how to survive when the economy throws a curveball. Despite turbulence, the 2020 Growth List companies showed resilience, spirit and, most importantly, empathy and strong leadership,” says Susan Grimbly, Growth List Editor. “As we celebrate over 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that the heart of Canada’s entrepreneurial community beats strong, even in tough times.”


For over 30 years, the Growth List ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies (formerly the Growth 500) has been Canada’s most respected and influential ranking of entrepreneurial achievement. Originally developed by PROFIT and now published in a special Growth List print issue of Canadian Business (packaged with the December issue of Maclean’s magazine) and online at and, the Growth List ranks Canadian companies on five-year revenue growth, and the Startup List ranks Canadian new growth companies on two-year revenue growth.
