Our History

  • David Scott recognized that successful organizations require accurate information to understand their market, reach potential clients, and to stay ahead of the competition. With very little information available in the market to purchase, Mr. Scott and his wife researched, compiled and published the first Scott’s Directory in 1957 – and a Canadian success story was born.

  • When David Scott published the first Ontario Manufacturers Directory, he gave life to a brand of information products that over the following six decades have truly helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers across almost every sector of the Canadian marketplace. We’ve helped countless business people identify and reach their best target audiences – and by facilitating difficult business connections we’ve helped them reach their goals.

  • For over 60 years Scott’s has been trusted by owners, managers, sales teams, marketing professionals, and researchers of all types because of our reputation for accurate, up-to-date, and high quality data. We’re pleased to be at your service again today with out detailed contact information you can rely on.

  • So with reverence for our six-decade legacy, we also look forward to the future. On March 1, 2017 Scott’s Directories changed ownership and officially became part of MacRAE’S – one of North America’s most trusted B2B digital marketing service providers.

Scott’s Directory has been instrumental in helping us at Habitat for Humanity (Miss-Halt-Duff) connect with local businesses for partnerships. The search function allows us to narrow our search to very specific criteria to give us precise results while also providing us with key information on the business. It has made our outreach process much faster and simpler with easy ways to download and save our search results, and we look forward to continuing their services in future searches

We recently purchased a list that contained 2,200 manufacturers in Ontario with facilities over 33,000 sq ft in size. We were doing old fashioned mail-outs for marketing and have had results better than expected. We are looking at purchasing another list.

Was a brand new employee about a 10 weeks ago and I could tell that Scott’s Directory had far more bells and whistles than I was using. Decided to give their helpline a try. Upon calling, I was greeted by a kind and bubbly phone assistant named Rabiya. She taught me how to create and save company lists. That action alone saved me a lot of time. She would take a moment at the end of every call to point out a feature I was not familiar with.
