Effective Searching Tips

Our business directory is stored in database format. This means you can search for descriptive words (called “keywords”) or you can view the directory entries sequentially (“browsing”).

Searching the Directory Listings:

Type a word (do not type in quotation marks) in the grey box next to the Search button and click on the Search button. You will see a list of one of more directory entries which match what you typed. Our search feature works on partial words as well. For example, typing in “auto” will return records containing “automotive” , “automobile” as well as “auto”.

All searches search the entire business directory. That is, you can search for other records without returning to the main page.

Browsing Examples and Tips:

ALL: Click this button to list all directory entries alphabetically by name

Please notice the scroll bar on the right-hand side of the directory entries list. You can move up or down the list. To view one of the entries, click on its name in the list. You will see the information on file. If an email link is listed, you can email the business directly from this website. If a website link is listed, you can link to their website (a new window appears when the link is selected)
Please notice the boxed arrows above and to the right of the business name. If you click on the left-most arrow, you’ll be returned to the directory entry list. If you click on the right-most arrow, you’ll be returned to the page which shows the Business directory descriptive fields.


Click on Community. You will see a listing of all the individual communities listed on our site. Click on a community (example, Baddeck), and you will then see a listing of all Directory entries on file for this community. As an added benefit, the entries are sorted by name. You can click on any of the entries to see the information on file for a business.


You may click on any field shown (telephone number, FAX, address lines) to display a list of all directory listings in sorted order by the field selected.
