Yellow Pages ending home delivery in some areas of Canada

The company that makes the once ubiquitous yellow-tinted telephone directory says it will  phase out home delivery of its eponymous book in some parts of Canada starting immediately.

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.
