Kelowna, Canada—May 17, 2016—Waterplay Solutions Corp. was announced yesterday as one of Canada’s top 100 businesses led by female entrepreneurs. Waterplay ranked 52nd on the 18th annual W100 list—the country’s largest celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women. The rankings published by PROFITguide.com and Canadian Business Magazine are based on the size, growth rate, and profitability of each business.  

“It’s a great honour to be recognized alongside such outstanding businesses and leaders in Canada,” says Waterplay President, Jill White. “This recognition reflects the exceptional growth of our product over the years and the hard work of our entire team.” Since purchasing the business from its founders in 2004, White has helped the company become a global leader in the aquatic play industry. Now based in Kelowna, it operates a full manufacturing facility, employs over 50 individuals, and plays a strong role in the local community, working with organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, United Way, the Kelowna Food Bank, and Salvation Army. Female leadership is not the exception in this organization—the company’s Managing Director and Director of Finance are both women—and plays a unique part of Waterplay’s corporate identity today. 

Waterplay is excited to celebrate this special distinction and continue building on its mission of connecting the world through play. Full coverage of the W100 will be featured in the June 2016 issue of Canadian Business magazine as well as online at Chatelaine.com.
