Tips for Free People Search in Canada

There are several absolutely free online resources for searching for people in Canada without having to pay for information, keeping in mind that more sophisticated or in-depth information about people (like background checks, criminal histories and employment records) is not included at no charge.

Canadian People Search Tools

people search canada A 'tool' is usually a software app that someone created and put forward for some kind of gain whether it be dollars, website traffic, popularity, links or just a warm and fuzzy feeling of bucking capitalism.

'Tools' in Canada customarily don't have their own sources of data but merely tap into existing (large) people databases, thereby in their very nature making them mostly unnecessary as those seeking people in Canada could simply go to the database directly without the aid of the 'tool'. Some of the better utilities might attempt to search multiple repositories but as people databases continually change parameters, tools can become outdated. Moreover, people search tends to be a sporadic event that doesn't warrant purchasing one software program (the tool) to search another software program (a database).

True People Search Canada

Canada.ca is a web database (in English and French) populated with true information about Canadian individuals and businesses, searchable by name, location and/or phone number (reverse lookup). Advanced-search options include advanced search, reverse address, reverse postal code, proximity, area code, popular name directory, social search and direction search. Canada business search parameters include multiple locations and products/services.

Residential listings originate from public local telephone records for published numbers but some information in independent telephone companies' databases may not appear.

To add personal information to the database, go to the home page and scroll down to (or search for) 'Request a Residential Directory'. It looks like adding a business is not free: "Want to have your business listed on Canada? Advertise with us."

Website Directories in Canada

people search canada From the beginning the phrase 'people search Canada' has been one of the most popular search phrases online. Using that phrase in Google returns 3,150,000,000 (three billion one hundred fifty million) website listings in SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). Consequently the number of websites targeting that phrase for 'traffic' is proportionate. There are literally way too many people-search sites to mention here so let's focus on the larger ones for Canada:

One such website is "People Canada" - a popular Canadian search site with an expanded motto of "This is a good place to find!". Available to visitors in both English and French, it is a wide variety of features to search over 19 million listings. The site has tools to perform people search by name (with or without location - city entries are optional and the tool has a drop down list of provinces), zip code lookup, look up also by town (including U.S. businesses), toll free number lookup, city guides, yellow pages, Internet web search (by keyword), and links to International Directories on six continents.

Another provides media monitoring, research and reporting solutions through websites and English newspapers including The Vancouver Sun, The Province, The Calgary Herald, The Edmonton Journal, The Ottawa Citizen and The National Post. While not a people-search service per se, a site search service is provided although accessing it may not be readily obvious. It's necessary to click on the spy-glass icon at the upper right on the new/who-we-are page (for one).

In search tests, looking for the last name Miller produces a variety of news articles containing that name. Searching 'Jason Miller' brings reports to the top of listings for that person. Placing the name is double quotes seems to return the same results, unlike most search engines which would only return websites, videos, images and so on for locations containing that exact name.

Another way to refine search results is to switch to one of the sub categories then conducting the search, again using the spy-glass icon. Each sub category is further divided into sub-categories.

Lastly any word or phrase can be searched on any website by using the format (site:websitename.com). For example, to locate pages on a website that contain the word 'lookup', in the address bar type (site: websitename.com lookup) without parentheses. Adding more words will return more page results. Including a phrase is double quotes will only return pages that contain the exact phrase within the quotes.

How Can I Find Someone in Canada?

people search canada As Facebook grew to a large number of people, it became a large repository of data re people going well beyond 'name, address and phone number'. In its early years the website may not have been thought of as a means for finding someone but as popularity grew so did its search function.

You must be logged into Facebook to conduct a search and once there, click where 'Search' appears in the search box and type the person's name.

Facebook Search

As letters are entered Facebook will present a list of peoples' names, any one of which could be selected as the search name. After entering a first name, enter the first letter of the next name (middle or last) to see matching suggestions. Otherwise enter as much of a name as desired and either press Enter or click on the 'spy-glass' icon on the right of the search box to conduct the search.

'Catfishing' is using fake online personas, people profiles or accounts in Canada to lure people into false if not harmful and dangerous relationships. Use this service to conduct a totally free people search by name, email and home address and phone number to see if people are real.

How Do I Find A Phone Number For Someone?

Begin finding someone's phone number by simply searching Google for the person's name.

For a broad return of many records, use only the last name, especially if the name is uncommon. To narrow the search results, add a first name and search again. Still no luck? Add a middle initial or middle name. Keep adding as much information is available like an address, a partial address, a previous address or phone number, place of employment or birth, names of relatives, schools attended, a suspected area code, date of birth, professional designation (Dr., PhD, CPA, etc)...

Narrow search returns by placing search words in double parenthesis, like "John Q. Smith" will only return exact matches for that string of characters. Tandem search phrases can be used, like "John Q. Smith" "Canada". ('And' between phrases is not necessary. Omitting 'and' won't change the listings significantly.)

Why Google People Finder Canada? It's:

people search canada What are White Pages? They are alphabetical listings of names, addresses and telephone numbers of people with telephone service (or subscriptions to services related to publishers of such information). Any person with a telephone number that is not 'unlisted' and who otherwise has not requested exclusion from the publication can be found in the directory.

The monikers 'white' and 'yellow' originated with printed telephone books which had information about people on white pages and business advertisements on yellow pages. Of course all white pages were grouped together and all yellow pages were grouped together in the same 'phone book' so in looking at the edge of the book, each section was clearly distinguishable. If you picked up the phone book to find people in Canada, you knew to go to the white section.In geographical areas where combining personal and business information was too much for one volume, listings for individuals and businesses were published in separate books. In heavily-populated areas both white and yellow pages were divided into separate books with alphabetical groups like A-F, G-M, etc.

Reverse Phone Search Reverse Phone Number Lookup in Canada

Entering a phone number into the search box of a 'reverse-phone-number' search service might return a useful result. Success is 'iffy' partly because of the frequency with which ppl change their phone numbers. A new complication adding to unlikely success is the addition of cell-phone numbers added to the mix. A large number of phone numbers are also 'unlisted' (not in public record) making them irretrievable.

The same phone number can be reassigned to different people in Canada as they are discontinued by previous users. Even though the current (alleged) owners of the numbers may not be the people in question, other listings may include information about targets in Canada, like a relative or a key previous address.

people search canada Property records seldom come to mind when looking for a phone number but in those provinces where phone numbers are included in peoples' property records (or not), using the address as a search parameter might at least find the person to open up a conversation, if only by snail mail.

Reverse Address Lookup Canada Postal Code

A reverse-address lookup allows an address to be entered as a search parameter for the purpose of determining the person or business at the address. Including the postal code may help to retrieve an exact location.

Whitepages provides a free reverse search for persons and for businesses. Most free offerings are limited in some way and only act as teasers to entice users into 'upgrading' to a paid version. This service is no exception. After only 2 clicks a warning pops up stating that searches are being performed 'too fast' and an upgrade to the pro version is recommended. Clicking elsewhere leads to the typical 'unlock full report' button which in turn presents 'search plans' with various features and prices (contact info plan, all-access plan and background report).

People Search Sites Free People Search Sites

100% Free Canada people search: People search sites often use 'free' as click bait for paid services in Canada. Case in point: Searching a common name on a website (claiming to have 'billions of records on people from Canada') returns just 4 matches of people with an address, the last 4 digits of the phone number x'd out, no age - very limited search results surrounded by more click bait leading to a paid people-search service which promises to deliver ("if available") full name, age, addresses, date of birth, phone numbers and relatives for 95c*. The asterisk leads to a disclosure 'Special price with the Intelius People Plus offer' which in turn discloses that the 95c really doesn't exist because it requires signing up for the plus plan which would be $7.95 IF the plan is canceled within 7 days, accented by "You saved $3.00 on this report!". If not, the charge is $29.95 PER MONTH. Now if recollection serves, buried in the finer print, canceling within 7 days imposes a charge of $7.95 so "Where's the 95c again?". As part of the chicanery the site touts the BBB (Better Business Bureau) 'Accredited Business' seal plus the assurance that the people targeted in the search will not be notified of the search - a hollow token. Why would people be notified anyway? When there are multiple matches for the search, how would people know which person to warn?
