LesPAC.com is an online classified advertisement service, similar to Craiglist.org, targeted to French-speaking Canadians. Unlike Craigslist, LesPAC is largely a paid service; the only free section is the community classifieds, which lets users post items to give away for free.
Launched in 1996, LesPAC.com is primarily used in Quebec and targets consumers, dealers, Realtors, merchants and service companies. The site's parent company claims LesPAC.com offers simple and secure transactions, a strong presence throughout the province, efficient technical support and a platform that can withstand a high volume of inventory. Membership is free, but users must pay to post ads.
The classifieds on LesPAC.com are organized on the home page into categories and sub-categories, which are hidden away by clicking the plus and minus icons. The search box at the top of the page lets users search for products and services, filtering their results by category or location. All of the content on LesPAC.com is in French.
Canadian e-commerce solutions company Mediagrif purchased LesPAC from Yellow Media, Canada's largest Internet company, in 2011 for $72.5 million in cash. At the time of the purchase, LesPAC was Quebec’s no. 1 classified website, with 780,000 members and 1.8 million unique visitors per month.
