At one point or another, we have all said, or have heard someone say, “I want to be rich”.
The statement often leads us to wonder who is rich, and how we can be like them. While there are several billionaire celebrity faces, none of them reside in Canada. Which leads to us further wonder, who are the richest people in Canada?
Fortunately, the 10 and 3 blog has compiled a chart of the wealthiest people in Canada and have conveniently broken it down by each province and territory.

While Chip Wilson has quickly accumulated a net worth of $2.3 billion, it’s James Pattison who takes the big prize in British Columbia.
What’s also interesting to point out is that Canadians are “getting richer” faster than Americans – our wealth increased by 6.7 per cent in 2014. There are currently just over 5,000 Canadians with $30 million or more in wealth which combines for a whopping $700 billion.
