According to BIV, rankings are based on the number of staff working in British Columbia as of March 31, 2010. Data was collected via interviews conducted by BIV with the studios that responded to requests for information.

The BIV list uses 2009 figures for Propaganda Games, Slant Six Games, and Next Level Games. In the case of Propaganda Games, we have heard from an employee there and updated their employee count.
