Seeking recommendations for companies that sell B2B contact lists (with emails) that specifically have good volumes and quality of contacts in Canada (not the US).

There are many companies but trust me the list provided are full of inundated info and most certainly, many people would be using it. I always suggest- build a customised list based on your exact need. You may end up spending more but results can be good. Look out for consultants/companies. I can help if interested.

Lorne, would you clarify if you are looking for exclusive use of a list or a co marketing arrangement to someone else's list?  If someone is introducing you to their list, that would seem to satisfy CASL.  If it is the first, I can make some inquiries from marketing contacts I have.

Depending on pricing, could be open to either situation.  Obviously assuming the list(s) would have contacts/orgs that fit the target zone I'm desiring, of course.

Be very careful with buying lists, especially for Canadian contacts. Canada's new anti-spam laws are pretty draconian, and can make you, personally, and your company liable for significant fines for violation. Worse, it allows individuals to sue you for spam claims, meaning you could get inundated with suits, many of which may even be spurious, which you then have to defend against.

Here is information about the law, in case you're not already familiar with it: http://kb.mailchimp.com/accounts/compliance-tips/about-the-canada-anti-spam-law-casl

Thanks Josh.  I am familiar with CASL.
