In 1957, David Scott, a University of Toronto law student discovered a need in the marketplace for a comprehensive directory of Canadian businesses. He, like many Scott's Directories users today, recognized that businesses require accurate information to reach potential clients.
He entered the publishing business with his own compilation covering Ontario manufacturers. This Scott's Directory publication was well received by the market and soon resulted in a second edition. Scott's Directories grew to include the first Quebec Manufacturers (1963), The Western Provinces (1969), and the Atlantic Provinces (1977) Directories. These Manufacturers Directories have been updated annually through the years.
In January 2006, along with our parent company, The Business Information Group, Scott's Directories was acquired by Vancouver-based Glacier Ventures International.
Almost five decades have passed since David Scott began with a single bound book on manufacturing firms across Ontario; their range has expanded significantly.
Today, Scott's Directories remains the pre-eminent source on Canadian Manufacturers, and now publishes varied and specialized information covering Corporate, Medical, Government, Educational, Schools and International resources for the vibrant Canadian and international marketplace. In addition to providing the bound book resources, Scott's Directories are now available electronically in CD or online with increasing functionality to suit the needs of progressive organizations.
For 50 years, Scott's Directories have been known for their quality, reliability, and exceptional ease-of-use. Scott's Directories publishes accurate information on Canadian organizations and individuals in the manufacturing, industrial, service, healthcare, government, and educational sectors. They edit and verify that information each year. Scott's Directories invests in excess of $1 million per year to maintain the integrity of its records and consistently exceeds Canada Post's requirements at 97.2% deliverability or better.
