Montreal-based Yellow Pages Ltd. says Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville, three Ontario communities west of Toronto, are the first to see the end of home delivery. Others communities in select neighbourhoods may follow in the next year to a year-and-a-half as the company evaluates its business.
But it's not the end of the Yellow Pages book quite yet.
The company says it will use other ways to distribute paper directories in the affected areas, including street-level boxes and distribution racks in public areas and will continue its shift towards more use of digital and Internet forms of publication.
The company also runs the websites YellowPages.ca and Canada411.ca.
