From the press release:

Montréal (Quebec), June 20, 2006 – Yellow Pages Group (YPG) has developed a unique online search platform, which allows users of YellowPages.ca™ to obtain structured results with unstructured queries. Like other search engines, users will now be able to perform intuitive searches with keywords like products, brands or even landmarks, while obtaining accurate results structured according to the needs expressed in numerous usability studies. Few other search engines deliver structured results like these.

The new, lightweight and uncluttered interface of YellowPages.ca is evolving away from its directory listings format and giving users instant gratification even when they don’t know which keyword to use when conducting a search. Until now, YellowPages.ca was relatively unforgiving if you didn’t know exactly what you were looking for. Not any more. To access the beta version of the new YellowPages.ca search engine, users simply have to visit [beta.yellowpages.ca...] or go to the homepage of the current site and click on the beta site link.

Hmm,

Not exactly impressive. It's got a long way to go before it has any chance of understanding the varied queries that real people use.
