The list of our city’s most influential leaders and thinkers was revealed last week at a swanky reception at Four Seasons Hotel, reading like a list of who’s who.

Editor-in-chief Sarah Fulford addressed guests at the event saying that it aims to encompass leaders and thinkers in a diverse variety of industries.

“Our Most Influential issue is a toast to those who have made significant contributions to the city of Toronto,” says Fulford. “Our 2015 list was carefully crafted to recognize and reflect Toronto’s most dynamic leaders and thinkers in politics, business, media, arts and culture—basically, everyone who matters now.”

Popular Torontonians on the list included Norm Kelly, Charles Khabouth (INK Entertainment), Mayor John Tory and Margaret Atwood. Leading the list was Drake which makes sense with his international appeal. Along the same veins, The Weeknd is also on that list.

On a personal level it was great for me to see Jeffrey Remedios (co-founder of Arts & Crafts) move on up the list now that he’s the new CEO of Universal Music Canada. Congrats!
