"Given that our Company offers a wide array of tools to help consumers search for a local business - from online, to mobile to print - we offer choice to Canadians consumers and provide them with the opportunity of opting-out of the print directory delivery list," said Nicolas Gaudreau, Chief Marketing Officer at Yellow Pages Group. "Our goal is to ensure that the print directories are delivered only to those who wish to receive them. Therefore, we encourage Calgarians who do not wish to receive the directory at their homes to opt-out of the delivery list."
