Typing a name into the relevant search bar on Canada 411 directs the user to a page listing all registered Canadian White Pages users with that name. Users who register with Canada 411 decide how much information they wish to share; therefore, some entries may only offer a first initial and a province, while other entries may include a full name, address and phone number. It is also possible to search for individuals by address or phone number alone, but these searches are not as accurate. Searching with a combination of a name and a location is a good way to narrow down your search results.

The White Pages website offers listings for users in the United States and Canada. A name search returns all matching results across both countries. Some entries on White Pages also list other individuals that a person may know. If the user is searching for an acquaintance, it may be possible to locate that person through a name search for a mutual friend.
