You can start with the Internet available directories, but there are still a lot of directories available at Reference Libraries.

Go to Toronto Public Library website and University of Toronto Corporate Resources Directory.

For language skills improvement go to ESL (English as a Second Language).

Here is a list of some directories where you can find valuable information. It is important to take notes about companies that appear interesting. Search for some of them if they have a Internet version.
