How to Find Email Addresses in Canada

By Deborah Cohn

Need to contact someone in Canada but don't know how to locate their email address? If you at least know the person's last name, Yahoo has a great resource, and it's easy to use.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Internet Access

Step 1

Go to the Yahoo Canada People Search site (see additional resources below). For some reason, the page still says "U.S. Phone & Address" search, but don't fret, it will search for Canadian listings.

Step 2

Enter the first and last name of the party in the "Email Search" section. Last name is required. If you get a result, it will show up on a new page.

Step 3

Check the top of the listings for the email address. But, keep in mind, the system will only post the first email address found and gives no location information, so you can't be totally sure this is the person you're looking for.

Step 4

If you are willing to spend around $2 to get more detailed info, you can click on the hyper-linked name of the party and you'll be taken to the Intelius site. Here you can purchase a much more thorough list of emails fitting the name you entered--with location info.

Tips & Warnings

  • There are actually many websites that offer email search services. Yahoo Canada offers a directory of these services (see additional resources). Most of them, like Intelius, charge a small fee, but some are free. However, some of these sites, though listed in Yahoo Canada, only offer U.S. searches.
