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.

Today, with a sterling reputation for quality and accuracy, Scott’s Directories is still trusted by business owners, stakeholders & managers, sales & marketing professionals and researchers of all types who need detailed contact information they can rely on.   We’re pleased to be at your service again today.

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.  There are some great synergistic advantages our customers can begin taking advantage of immediately.   The best example is Scott’s SEOTM – a very important inbound marketing service which harnesses MacRAE’S expertise and talent in that field.

This is an exciting combination – reliable outbound reach and inbound effectiveness from a single provider you can trust.   Visit ScottsSEO.ca for more information about the power of Scott’s SEOTM.
