11. Belkin Family | $900 million

Owners of the privately-held, Vancouver-based, Belkorp Group of Companies, run by Stuart Belkin, son of founder Morris, the family has interests in numerous industries from sugar to pulp and paper.

Billionaire Jimmy Pattison is ranked fourth on Canada's richest list but comes in at No. 1 in B.C.

B.C. may be home to the wealthiest woman in Canada, but when it comes to provincial loot, even Thomson heiress Sherry Brydson, worth a staggering $6.6 billion, comes in second to native son Jimmy Pattison, with his $7.88 billion fortune.   
Well-known family names dominate the B.C. contingent on this year’s ranking of Canada’s richest citizens, produced annually by Canadian Business magazine. B.C. boasted two entries in the top 10, while the province managed 11 spots overall.
From the mysterious Brydson, a former journalist and activist who lives in Victoria—and of whom little is known—to the media-happy Chip Wilson, B.C.’s richest entities span a diverse number of industries and personality types.
