About Perly's Maps

History of Perly's Maps

Based in Toronto, and founded by Al and Belle Perly in 1949, Perly's Inc., has been providing mapping solutions and map products to the Greater Toronto Area for over 50 years.  A third - generation family business, Perly's has grown to become a household name in the Greater Toronto Area, and has established itself as an invaluable tool and the region's map book of choice for business users, police, fire, and emergency services.

Since Perly's inception in 1949, it has evolved from a traditional map-making company to using digital technology to further enhance its products and services.  Coverage included Montréal and Québec City map books. The most popular products include the Greater Toronto _ Area Map Book, the Golden Horseshoe Map Book, the Megacity Streetguide and an assortment of wall maps.

On November 18, 2004 Rand McNally Canada purchased Perly's Inc Maps, bringing together an industry leader with one of the most recognized brands in the Toronto area.  Based in Markham, Ontario, Rand McNally Canada Inc. produces and distributes map products for the business, consumer and educational markets across Canada. The Rand McNally brand has been available in Canada for more than 80 years and includes national and local maps, atlases and reference products in both print and electronic format.  Rand McNally Canada has been utilizing its extensive resources and network to develop the Perly's brand ever since acquiring it.  The combined strengths of both companies enhanced current and future business opportunities.
