Connecting Canadians With Businesses & Ministries They Can Trust!

The first edition of The Canadian Shepherd’s Guide, published in 1988.


The Shepherd’s Guide was founded in 1979 and the first print directory came out in Baltimore, Maryland in 1980.  It was introduced to Canada in 1988 where, to this day, local publishers independently own and operate the directories for their designated area. The Canadian Shepherd’s Guide has grown to serve seventeen areas across five provinces in Canada. Each year 200,000 copies of The Canadian Shepherd’s Guide are printed making it the largest Christian directory in Canada. Its online presence receives on average 3,000 unique visitors per month.

Statement of Faith

The Canadian Shepherd’s Guide is unique in that we are not just another directory. Our Christian business directory emphasizes trust and integrity as the central ethical theme of our directories. To ensure this high standard is conveyed, all advertisers in The Canadian Shepherd’s Guide are given the opportunity to sign the following Statement of Faith:

I have received Jesus Christ as my personal savior and believe Him to be the Son of God who has atoned for my sins. Because I believe all aspects of my life to be lived to honor God, I promise to uphold the highest Biblical standards in my transactions and treat my clients with respect and integrity.
