If you’ve been on 411.ca recently, you probably noticed our new website. Pretty, isn’t it?

Check out the new 411.ca and see all the ways we can help your business grow.

The new website sparks the start of big changes here at 411.ca, as we plan to launch new products, a better Entrepreneurs Club and Ad Centre, and more – all to improve the 411.ca experience. With the new website comes great new features we thought you might like:


It’s easy!


The first thing you’ll notice on the new website is its clean, minimalist interface. Aside from simply being pretty, it serves a great function: less eye strain. More white space, better fonts and font sizes, and less mixed colours mean less jumble to help you find things much easier. The scroll down menu on the top left lets you access everything else you may need on the site, all in one area.



A seamless experience across all devices


When building the website, we took into consideration that mobile (both iOS and Android) accounts for 40% of total web browsing in Canada. Being mobile friendly is critical to the user experience and benefits both users and businesses listed on our website. It won’t matter what device you’re on, the website scales to whatever size needed with ease. You can now search and be found on the go.

A better, faster, more accurate search


The new website’s search, our bread and butter, has dramatically improved. Without getting too technical, new and improved algorithms means exactly what the subhead suggests. You’ll be finding local businesses faster and more accurately. And as a business owner, this means getting found much easier.

This is a big change, but change is good – especially when it’s for the better. We worked tirelessly to bring you this new website and will continue to work at making it even better. Everything about it was designed to provide you with the best user experience, so we hope you love it.
