Moving on to the list, it's clear that technology is playing a vital role in the development of Saskatchewan firms. Among the many fastest growing companies are several of the technological variety. Indeed the fastest growing company in Saskatchewan, Jump.ca Communications - formerly dotcom See dot-com. communications - falls into that category by providing wireless communications wireless communications

Shingles are widely used as roof covering on residential buildings and sometimes also for siding (see Shingle style). in more traditional Saskatchewan sectors; natural resources and trucking respectively. Having said that, however, Saskatchewan often takes a back seat to its neighbor to the west when analyzing the petroleum sector. But Tappit Resources, with their 244 per cent growth rate, is certainly making a mark in Saskatchewan's oil industry. Likewise, Kocsis Transport has achieved remarkable growth, locking up fourth place with a 210 per cent rate of growth.
