"Troovy is committed to providing the best local search experience for not only the major metros in Canada but across the entire country. For us, that means an ongoing dedication to offering the best context for those searches possible. Maponics is a key partner for that."
Troovy completed a limited closed beta at the end of 2008 and has over 500,000 business listings across Canada. Users can share reviews, ask questions of each other, and even share their current location with their followers.

"We are very proud that Troovy has chosen Maponics Canadian Neighbourhood Boundaries TM (which includes thousands of neighbourhood polygons for cities across Canada) to power their site.
