The Wordsmith & Rideau Lakes Directory

In this digital age, you’re unlikely to find a viable business that combines print/copy/computer services, video rentals, and the publishing of a phonebook. However, that’s just what Doug and Susan Gander have been doing at The Wordsmith since 1991, creatively and care-fully serving Westport, Rideau Lakes area and beyond, with friendly, reliable and personalized help handling words and images, and connecting with your community.

Yep. You’ve got VistaPrint, Netflix, and good old Google – as far as they go, and as long as you’ve got the right connections and capabilities. But they won’t catch your overlooked date error, pull up your favourite obscure film, list your neighbour’s cell phone or help you find that contractor who doesn’t have a web site.

There’s no replacement for good old fashioned service with updated tools and tactics.
