Canada's Top Models

Contributing Panelists

Imagine you are the director of a hypothetical "Dream Agency" representing only Canadian models. It should have international appeal, and be a mix of girls that will make you money now, and girls that will make you money in the future.

This is the guiding criteria used by Modelresource's select group of industry professionals when they choose this country's top models.

Every month each of our panelists submit a confidential list of 40 models, ranking their Top 20, and providing the names of 20 more in no particular order.

So just who is this impressive group of fashion insiders?
