Edi­tor’s Mes­sage

Ottawa Business Journal - Book of Lists - - Largest It Con­sul­tants -

A pre­de­ces­sor of mine used this space seven years ago to plug the Book of Lists as an al­ter­na­tive to the Yel­low Pages.

While the ex­plo­sion of on­line di­rec­to­ries and list­ings is hastily rel­e­gat­ing the tra­di­tional phone book into ob­so­les­cence, OBJ’s Book of Lists con­tin­ues to be the lead­ing ref­er­ence source for in­for­ma­tion on the top com­pa­nies in the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion.

It’s the only ref­er­ence guide of its kind in Ot­tawa that in­cludes such a broad range of busi­ness cat­e­gories and ranks or­ga­ni­za­tions by var­i­ous cri­te­ria. With more than 600 firms sorted into dozens of cat­e­gories, the Book of Lists is a valu­able re­source for find­ing cus­tomers, sup­pli­ers, or sim­ply see­ing where a com­pany ranks among its peers.

New this year is a list of the city’s largest as­so­ci­a­tions, which looks at the top not-for-prof­its and in­dus­try or­ga­ni­za­tions head­quar­tered in Ot­tawa.

The as­so­ci­a­tions list comes as a re­sult of sev­eral re­quests from read­ers. OBJ is al­ways in­ter­ested in hear­ing sug­ges­tions on how we can pro­vide the most rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion for the city’s busi­ness com­mu­nity.

This pub­li­ca­tion is a con­stant work in progress, with the in­for­ma­tion con­tained in its pages be­ing up­dated through­out the year. That’s only pos­si­ble thanks to the co-op­er­a­tion of all the com­pa­nies and or­ga­ni­za­tions that re­sponded to our re­quests for in­for­ma­tion.

With­out their will­ing­ness to pro­vide ac­cu­rate and up-to-date data, the Book of Lists would not be pos­si­ble.

An­other huge thanks goes out to OBJ’s re­searcher, Patti Mo­ran, who spent count­less hours send­ing out sur­veys and or­ga­niz­ing the re­sults. The Book of Lists is pro­duced by OBJ cre­ative di­rec­tor Tanya Con­nol­lyHolmes and proof­read by Krys­tle Chow and El­iz­a­beth How­ell.

This pub­li­ca­tion is also avail­able for pur­chase in a dig­i­tal for­mat, with our data­bases or­ga­nized in an Ex­cel file, at OBJ.ca.

Whether you pre­fer the print or dig­i­tal edi­tion, the Book of Lists is a use­ful busi­ness di­rec­tory, buyer’s guide and re­search tool that will be a ver­sa­tile re­source for your or­ga­ni­za­tion through­out the year.
