Where is the manufacturer/distributors directory?

I often have to source products for resale.
Not retailers but makers or distributors
Now I am looking for structures (fabric,steel)

I don't think such directory exists, you would have to do your own homework via web searches.

You can contact local companies who often have contacts or factories overseas for mass production.

The Industry Canada - Canadian Company Capabilities index used to address some of those things (not so much product specific but industry specific). However, they are now closed down (that's the other name for tax cuts).

The Industry Canada Company Capabilities website still has some static references to certian sectors for some fee-based private directory companies, but they aren't listings of products displayed like a catalogue.
