A local city search engine that has been around since December of 1996. The listings use redirected links but the site is a really good source of citations. Their listings consistently appear in the results of the leading search engines. They offer a free basic listing that includes only your business name, address and phone number. You are contacted by phone to verify your business. They also offer paid listings.
Google Maps Canada searches have a notice at the bottom of the page saying "Business listings distributed by YellowPages.ca". There is some sort of relationship between the yellowpages.ca and Google thus it would seem advantageous to have a listing in the yellow pages. The French site PagesJaunes.ca is owned by the same company and likely shares the same database.
