How does one find agents to query?

Another question I’ve been asked is: how does one find agents to query?  After all, there are thousands of agents out there and nobody can or should query them all!  Somehow one has to be selective in a more than arbitrary way.

I’m in Canada so can only speak from a Canadian perspective.  One source I’ve used for a long time is Brian Henry’s Quick Brown Fox blog:

Often he will post about agencies with new agents looking for authors and what kind of manuscripts they’re interested in seeing.
