Researching Canadian Companies for Free
She breaks down the process of researching companies into 3 steps:
- Determine what information are you looking for
- Is it a public company, a private company or a crown corporation?
- Jurisdiction? (i.e. federal or provincial)
"These are just some of the resources available; depending on geographical location and what is being looked for, there may be other equally helpful resources not listed above. As I mentioned above, I also recommend checking with your local public library to see what databases they offer access to. That said, if you do a lot of company research, you will want to look into subscribing to one of the paid services that have already compiled and analyzed company data, as this will save you a lot of time."
