The CanOils® Database was first developed by Woodside Research Ltd. in 1985. Woodside's founder, John Shiry, had been a political science professor at four different Canadian universities after earning his doctorate at Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario. He started analyzing oil & gas companies soon after moving to Calgary in 1979 at the height of the oil boom of that period and started CanOils as an investor-oriented database focusing on the unique features of oil & gas companies.

During 2004, Woodside developed a joint venture with Evaluate Energy, and proceeded to design, implement and market the CanOils® database.

In 2007, Evaluate Energy purchased CanOils® from Woodside Research to provide an integrated company analysis tool to the Canadian market. Since then it has developed to a rapid extent, to provide complete coverage of the Canadian E&P space, Oil Sands and corporate financings.
