The Richest People In Every Province In Canada

Find out who has the biggest net worth.
The Richest People In Every Province In Canada

A little while ago someone on reddit decided to figure out who was the richest person in every US state.

This made us wonder who the hell was the richest person in Quebec was and before we knew it, we were hunting down the richest people in every Canadian province.

We were surprised at what we discovered, because there were a few unlikely candidates that would never even have appeared on a list of the top 100 richest Canadians a few years ago, and yet now they are the richest person in their respective province.

We checked the latest stats on the top richest Canadians, stalked their bios to find out where they were from and voilà.

(Unfortunately we could not figure out who the richest citizens were for the Territories. A search revealed some older outdated results and even those couldn't agree on who exactly was the richest person in either in Nunavut, Yukon or the NWT.)
