If you live near a Canadian university library or archives, there may be copies of Bruce Baden Peel's Bibliography of the Prairie Provinces microfiche collection. This is a major reference work for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. This includes copies of city directories up to 1953 for the main cities of the prairies. Search for "Peel Bibliography" as a title at this link to the WebCat online catalog of the University of Calgary. You can then search to see what directories are included for which towns. (Even though this link is for U of C, the information will be the same as in other university library catalogs.) Click on "OK" to search. This site lists titles of the actual microfiche.)Search Engines:
As a very LAST resort...You have a name and place, but there's the brick wall.
Many of the provincial local history books do not have on-line indexes. You might send an email to the local library asking that your message might be given to someone who is an expert in the area local history who could provide suggestions for finding information about your ancestor. As a courtesy to the librarian, I recommend this only after exploring as many other resources as possible. It has been my experience in tracking my ancestors' migration across the prairies that there are always a few helpful old timers in the villages that know something or someone that might help. This approach works best for villages and hamlets.
