The Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance does not have actual job descriptions, but it gives a general idea of the skills and qualifications required for various careers:

You can also consult the website WorkinginCanada. 

Researching companies

There is a Company Research subject guide, but the best resource for finding companies in Canada is Mergent Online. Select the tabl 'D&B 20M Private Company database'. You can then run a search by country, city, or industry.

If you are researching a public company, search on the main landing page.  

Finding people with specific job titles

Searching a job title on Google (or another general search engine) can also be useful:

  • Google (tip! Use filetyle: doc or pdf to help narrow your search e.g. IT consultant job ad and filetype:pdf )
