Imperial Oil

Another century-old company founded in London, Ont., Imperial Oil was incorporated back in 1880 and today is Canada’s ninth-largest business by revenue, according to TheGlobe & Mail. Imperial Oil, which operates under the brand name Esso in Canada, moved its headquarters to Calgary in 2005, though the energy giant has a surprising connection to the U.S. Nearly 70 per cent of Imperial Oil is owned by ExxonMobil, the Texas-based multinational that’s a direct descendant of the Standard Oil company founded by John D. Rockefeller.
