What is a Standard Subscription?

Safe and Trusted Canada ( The Site) provides the option for The Standard Subscription for $199.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription. 

Monthly subscriptions paid yearly are 18.58 plus GST.  Monthly subscriptions must be cancelled with 60 days’ notice. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $0.54.  See the application. SATCanada


There is a discount offer for businesses in provinces under 1.5 million people.  If your business is situated in a province with less than 1.5 million people then the Standard Subscription has a $25.00 discount. Your Standard subscription is reduced to $174.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription. Monthly subscriptions are $16.50 plus GST. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $0.47 plus GST. 

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition on this website by linking their Safe and Trusted Profile directly to their business website.  This means that the user does not have to search you out as a business on the Safe and Trusted site which could also mean that your customers won’t see your competition.   This advantage could be huge for you as a business owner in many ways.  

Use your profile to augment your website.  You can add material on your profile easier than on your website and more importantly the user doesn’t see your competition in the process.  Imagine all the material on your Safe and Trusted Canada profile that is not on your website.

Payments can be made by credit card, cheque, electronic transfer or Authorized Debit. There are no refunds for paid accounts as The Site gives the Basic Account at no charge for evaluation purposes of our Site Content Management System.

This account type provides the account holder with access to place up to 30 subcategories into their profile.  The account holder has the ability to place that profile in up to 5 trade areas adjacent to the business location.  In addition, the business can add up to 1 PDF documents, 5 images and embed up to 1 YouTube videos in their business profile

Every View is measured for the Business Owner. Companies with accounts have access to their measured views.  The measured views are secured in the content management pages for the business and are not displayed for public view. See More.   

All our account types are for legitimate businesses.  Your business needs to be registered and licensed and cannot have known issues readily apparent to consumers.  Businesses applying for all subscription types have to be approved by Safe and Trusted Canada taking into consideration years in business and their overall business record.   See other Subscription Types.

The business is in the third tier of the database.  Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles, Basic Subscriptions, Plus Subscriptions and any others who may have signed up for the Standard Subscription after your business in your region or categories.  Your listed business credentials also impact the order of display. The  Standard Subscription is listed in the database according to our Business Order of Display. 

Every business has business credentials.  Is the Advertised Name registered? Is the business licensed for the business category and city or town? How many years have they been in business is also a factor. 

If you are a contractor in addition to the above, do you carry worker’s compensation, liability insurance and do you provide written contracts and warranty?  So in addition to the subscription level, business credentials provide the consumer with the separation needed between one business and another.  A business must guarantee that the listed business credentials are accurate.

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  You can also link to all your local affiliations, as well as any business category affiliations that show why customers should pick you.  Affiliations add to the overall credibility of a business.  Just go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the name of the affiliation then add the link to your listing with that affiliation.  Place the full link next to the name of the affiliation.  If you have a paid subscription all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website as well in linking back to certain parts of your website. Some businesses have changed links on their website or no longer have relevant affiliations.  As a result, all linking must be done by administration staff with Safe and Trusted Canada for security reasons. 

One of the benefits of our platform is that the business can place their contact information, links to their social media, their business credentials and links to all their review sites.  They can highlight what makes them different, promotions, now hiring and even specific links to their website.  They manage their own reviews and can send all their information to a potential client in one link.  This gives the business owner the ability to give their clients the whole picture.

Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews.  All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that as a business owner you are always on top of your business.  You are able to ask for the deletion of corrected reviews from customers or even ask the customer for a new review.  As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business.  There are no more blindsides for your business.  You are able to ask for reviews from all your customers without worrying about what the review will say.  The advantage for you is that you are always on top of your business.

Are you Hiring Staff?  The content management system to place information into your business profile that you are hiring staff.  The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type. 

The potential new staff will instantly view everything about your company and as a business owner, you will have the benefit of dealing directly with the potential new hire. 

The best part is that the new potential hire will already know based on your overall profile why they want to work for your company. 

You can place content and direction on how to apply for the job opening and in our system, you can even place a link directly to your website or another job hiring website that can give them more information.

Does your business use discounts or promotions?  Your account management gives the business owner the ability to have short or long term discounts for customers. 

Place the content in the appropriate area and drive more possible customers to your business.  There are a full range of options and all you have to remember is to remove the promotion or discount if it is no longer in place. 

You also have the option to link your discount to your website or other promotions website.  Remember all links become shortened automatically.

Do you want a professional video with more than just a link that you own forever without advertising?  This option might be for your business.   A 60-second video for a standard subscription is $449.00 plus taxes.   This video provides key graphics related to your business including your logo, website, and contact information.  You need to provide your logo, script and we ask you to remember to abide by advertising standards in your script.  We don’t redo the video.  The video will be done by our on-camera narrators.

Please note this applies only to those businesses that apply for account status.   Other businesses that are information only profiles only will have no information alert generated

 Some business categories are not part of the Site.  Our current category options are the same in every city and town.   See Saskatoon as an example. The Site is currently expanding. See other areas. 

How are reviews Processed?

Monthly subscriptions are 10.25 plus GST.  Monthly subscriptions can be cancelled with 60 days’ notice. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $0.27.  See the application.  SATCanada

If your business has a current accreditation with Better Business Bureau or needs to have a professional affiliation in order to operate as a business then the Plus Subscription has a rebate of $99.00 rebate for as long as accreditation or professional affiliation is current.  Your Plus subscription is reduced to a free subscription. 

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition on this website by linking their Safe and Trusted Profile directly to their business website.  This means that the user does not have to search you out as a business on the Safe and Trusted site which could also mean that your customers won’t see your competition.   This advantage could be huge for you as a business owner in many ways.  

Use your profile to augment your website.  You can add material on your profile easier than on your website and more importantly the user doesn’t see your competition in the process.  Imagine all the material on your Safe and Trusted Canada profile that is not on your website.

Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or monthly PAD from your chequing account. There are no refunds for paid accounts as The Site gives the Basic Account at no charge for evaluation purposes of our Site Content Management System.

This account type provides the account holder with access to place up to 20 subcategories into their profile.  The account holder has the ability to place that profile in up to 1 trade area adjacent to the business location.   

Every View is measured for the Business Owner. The measured views are secured in the content management pages for the business and are not displayed for public view. See More 

All our account types are for legitimate businesses.  Your business needs to be registered and licensed and cannot have known issues readily apparent to consumers.    Businesses applying for all subscription types have to be approved by Safe and Trusted Canada taking into consideration years in business and their overall business record.   See other Subscription Types.

The business is in the fourth tier of the database.  Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles, Basic Subscriptions, and any others that may have signed up for a Plus Subscription after your business in your region or categories.  Your listed business credentials also impact the order of display. The  Plus Subscription is listed in the database according to our Business Order of Display. 

Every business has business credentials.  Is the Advertised Name registered? Is the business licensed for the business category and city or town? How many years have they been in business is also a factor. 

If you are a contractor in addition to the above, do you carry worker’s compensation, liability insurance and do you provide written contracts and warranty?  So in addition to the subscription level, business credentials provide the consumer with the separation needed between one business and another.  A business must guarantee that the listed business credentials are accurate.  

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  You can also link to all your local affiliations, as well as any business category affiliations that show why customers should pick you.  Affiliations add to the overall credibility of a business.  Just go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the name of the affiliation then add the link to your listing with that affiliation.  Place the full link next to the name of the affiliation.  If you have a paid subscription all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website as well in linking back to certain parts of your website.  Some businesses have changed links on their website or no longer have relevant affiliations.  As a result, all linking must be done by administration staff with Safe and Trusted Canada for security reasons. 

One of the benefits of our platform is that the business can place their contact information, links to their social media, their business credentials and links to all their review sites.  They can highlight what makes them different, promotions, now hiring and even specific links to their website.  They manage their own reviews and can send all their information to a potential client in one link.  This gives the business owner the ability to give their clients the whole picture.

Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews.  All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that as a business owner you are always on top of your business.  You are able to ask for the deletion of corrected reviews from customers or even ask the customer for a new review.  As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business.  There are no more blindsides for your business.  You are able to ask for reviews from all your customers without worrying about what the review will say.  The advantage for you is that you are always on top of your business.

Are you Hiring Staff?  The content management system to place information into your business profile that you are hiring staff.  The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type. 

The potential new staff will instantly view everything about your company and as a business owner, you will have the benefit of dealing directly with the potential new hire. 

The best part is that the new potential hire will already know based on your overall profile why they want to work for your company. 

You can place content and direction on how to apply for the job opening and in our system, you can even place a link directly to your website or another job hiring website that can give them more information. 

Does your business use discounts or promotions?  Your account management gives the business owner the ability to have short or long term discounts for customers. 

Place the content in the appropriate area and drive more possible customers to your business.  There are a full range of options and all you have to remember is to remove the promotion or discount if it is no longer in place. 

You also have the option to link your discount to your website or other promotions website.  Remember all links become shortened automatically.

Do you want a professional video with more than just a link that you own forever without advertising?  This option might be for your business.   A 60-second video for a plus subscription is $549.00 plus taxes.   This video provides key graphics related to your business including your logo, website, and contact information.  You need to provide your logo, script and we ask you to remember to abide by advertising standards in your script.  We don’t redo the video.  The video will be done by our on-camera narrators. We send you an MP4 of the video so you own it forever.   

The video made for your business will be done by our skilled on-camera narrators.   Custom graphic videos are more involved and your investment will be according to the project presented.  See some examples of graphic videos we have done.   See more.

The business owner can ask all the customers for reviews, post the reviews and handle issues in private.  The business owner must ensure that they do not post reviews from anyone connected with their company.  See Alerts. 

In order to ensure full transparency to consumers, we are adding extra truth and transparency options.  Safe and Trusted Canada is concerned with businesses that may wish to add their profile to our Site.  Some marketing companies are asking for subscriptions that have F-Ratings with Better Business Bureau, and have reviews on Google that appear to be initiated by the business owner.  Some do not have any credentials listed in their profile.  As a result, both businesses and consumers need extra information.  Please note this applies only to those businesses that apply for account status.   Other businesses that are information only profiles only will have no information alert generated

Some business categories are not part of the Site.  Our current category options are the same in every city and town.   See Saskatoon as an example. The Site is currently expanding. See other areas.

Business Order of Display

The order of display affects how the consumer will view businesses on this website. 

The order of display is not a factor if the company uses the Safe and Trusted logo on their business website.  Using the logo and code provided gives a direct link from the company to the profile on Safe and Trusted and bypasses our order of display.
The order of display is not a factor where a consumer uses the Credentials Search function of the website, as consumers may be looking for credentials that will impact the order of display.  As an example, if they are looking for businesses that have been in business for ten years or more, that will significantly affect the view.

All subscriptions are at different levels.  The start date of the subscription and the credentials of the business determine placement.  

What are the credentials score for your business?

The change ensures that the consumer is always looking at the business with the most extended history with the most business credentials at any subscription level.   If the company moves from a Professional Subscription to a Basic Subscription, the company loses not only their subscription level; they also do not retain the date of their initial signup.  The company maintains its credential score when moving to another subscription level.

Consumers can refine their search by viewing the external review sites of the business as well as reviews generated on Safe and Trusted Canada.

Tier 1 – Professional – See Professional Subscription
Tier 2-  Advanced –  See Advanced Subscription
Tier 3-  Standard – See Standard Subscription

What Causes an Alert About A Business?

Alerts apply to any business. Alerts for Information Only Profiles apply as follows.  

An Information Only profile will a temporary alert placed on the business if the business asks for removal or has gone out of business.   

For Information Only profiles, the alert is placed on the business and the business will be archived at the same time that we place the alert.  We will keep the business in our database as archived and not visible. 

Alerts for Account Holders occur when a company has committed a major violation of the Site.   

 If they have never had an account, they can never have an alert.   There are three reasons for an alert.  

a)  The Account Holder has placed credentials into their profile that they do not have.  The company has committed a major violation of our Site policies and affected the credibility of the Site as well as all businesses on the Site.  If they do, the company has committed a major violation of our Site policies and results in retention on the Site with an Alert Status as an Information Only Profile for a period of one year before archival from the Site. 

b)  Account-holders can approve business reviews for their business.  The business is cautioned not to approve reviews directly or indirectly from staff, employees or those connected with the company.   If they do, the company has committed a major violation of our Site policies and results in retention on the Site with an Alert Status as an Information Only profile for a period of one year before archival from the Site.  

c) The account holder has gone out of business. 

d) The Alert is placed on the business for a period of one year.  After one year the business is archived and no longer visible.

When Do We Archive a Business?

A business in the marketplace has links to social media, review sites, and business directories, affiliations, and of course, the website of the company.

Safe and Trusted Canada provides links to everything that we can readily find about the business.   The links could show excellence or a need for improvement.  Safe and Trusted Canada allows the consumer to make their decisions on the quality of the links as well as the quality of the content.  There is no interpretation, nor does Safe and Trusted Canada endorse, validate, recommend or suggest a business.  We provide a system where the consumer sorts and selects companies based on the criteria the user feels vital to them.  

Information Only profiles contain links to your website, social media, and other review sites that are already available to the consumer.  We include your contact data and additional information available to consumers in one profile.  It is as if the consumer did the research, and of course, we will be happy to update your data if there are changes.  The archival of the business occurs if the company is no longer in operation.  The business owner can contact us, and we are more than happy to inform the Better Business Bureau and Google that your business is no longer in operation. They can contact you directly if required.    

Account Holders – To protect consumers, other businesses, and the integrity of the Site, Account holders have higher standards and greater responsibilities as a business.

The reason for this is that the company is now placing content on our Site and has control over reviews, placement of now hiring links, links to affiliations, and can place their credentials into their business profile. 

Should an account no longer be in operation, the business changes from account status to an Information Only profile?  If the firm develops an F-Rating with Better Business Bureau, or reviews show that the company profile shows concerns, the business profile becomes an information Only profile.  

The company develops an alert if they place credentials into their business profile they do not possess or post reviews on their profile from people connected directly or indirectly with the firm. Archival cannot happen if the business has an alert. See Alerts. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

The following details all listings in Canada by province and trade area within the province.   

The list shows each province.  When you click on the province it opens to
every trade area in the province listed on the Site.  Categories are listed in groups.  The reason for this is that businesses can easily ensure that they are selecting the proper categories for their business and consumers can easily compare similar groups of businesses. 

Restaurants and Hotels, the hospitality area has the first group. Automotive and Other categories involving any machine that travels is in the second group. Contractors and Home Related Categories are in the third group.

How Reviews Are Processed?

Safe and Trusted Canada has a review system

The Information  Only profile does not offer account privileges to a business. As such, the company cannot respond to or post reviews.

A consumer can leave a review, but it will only be visible to Safe and Trusted Canada but will not be available to the business owner or consumers. Safe and Trusted Canada might complete composite reviews based on our research of other review sites. Businesses that have accounts can handle reviews, post them and, of course, respond to them.   We suggest if you have a complaint against the company that you handle that through Better Business Bureau or seek legal advice.   Our Site links to BBB reports if available.   

Safe and Trusted Canada links to several review sites and may highlight businesses that show high reviews from customers as a composite review.  It will be dated and marked as from Safe and Trusted Canada.    

We suggest that the business applies for a Basic Account where they will be able to respond to and post reviews. Companies that are no longer in operation will have their business archived.  We also advise consumers in the notes area of every profile that they are responsible for all transactions with that business.   

Business owners will have the ability to have a Basic Subscription at no cost and may opt for other subscription types. 

Although we understand the importance of reviews, we are not interested in business owners leaving positive reviews about their business through their employees or people connected to the company.  This would be a violation of our policy.

Safe and Trusted Canada sees problems with some people leaving reviews about businesses in one part of the country and two hours later leaving a review about a company 2000 miles away.  Sometimes you will see multiple reviews for different companies all from the same person on the same day.  The business owner can reject a review from anyone that is not an actual customer. 

Our system indicates that transactions between a business and a customer belong only to them. We do not mediate issues.  This includes reviews. 

So our system puts the posting of reviews directly into the hands of the business owner with numerous options to correct issues, and verify reviews from actual customers that have dealt with the business.  

Users can leave a review by placing their email address or phone number in the review area.  The purpose of this is so a business can contact the customer directly to thank them for the review or as a heads up that there was a problem.  The email address will be verified in our process, but only once.  In this way, users can leave reviews with other businesses on our system. 

All Accounts can keep the review for reference, respond directly to the customer, or delete the review with a note as to why it has been deleted by the business owner.  The review may also be posted or not posted by the business.  Any deleted review is sent to Safe and Trusted Canada administration staff for further review.  The Site is looking for companies that can manage and respond to their customers.  

Posting the review. The business is not allowed to post reviews from those directly connected to the business as an employee or as any staff linked to the business. Doing so causes concerns, and we considered it a fraudulent review. 

Posting the review with a response.  The area of reply can be for both negative or positive reviews.  The business then posts the review.

Rejection of a review for other reasons.  Other reasons for rejecting a review might be as follows:

  • The business is in a court action with the consumer or is in collections.
  • The business is not aware that this is a customer.
  • The review is a personal attack and not an objective review.
  • Employee complaints and issues.
  • Business to Business relationships.

Please note that a customer can ask to have their review removed from the business profile at any time by contacting office@safeandtrusted.com 

The bottom line is that a small percentage of reviews will be negative, and the business has an obligation to deal with their legitimate customers.

The business owner must post reviews through their account access. 

The review format gives the consumer the decision to leave a positive, neutral or negative review. It also provides the consumer with their opinion on whether they are likely or less likely to recommend this business to others. The business owner verifies the review before it can be posted.

The consumer will only see posted reviews.  A rejected review will not show up as part of the overall rating.  If the consumer is not happy with the business and feels that they are not being dealt with appropriately by the business owner, they can always leave reviews at other sites or take legal action.   

Clearly, in every profile, the Site indicates that transactions between the consumer the business are between the two entities.  

Safe and Trusted Canada provides links to review sites associated with the business in the business account area if they have an account.  We provide links to Google and Safe and Trusted Canada in public view. 

The business owner will have links to other review sites through account access.  These review links may be proprietary to a particular site and will not be published.automatically.  The owner of the business will be able to see the information that other sites contain to correct information about their business and may publish their review sites if they have a paid account, 

Check Better Business Bureau for any extra information by going to bbb.org 

The last point is the most important.  Safe and Trusted Canada could remove account access at any time, and the business may be archived from our database on request if they are out of business as well. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

Become a Independent Business Affiliate Today

Our Independent Business Affiliate program is ideal for business organizations or individuals seeking extra income by assisting other businesses in marketing. 

The Independent Affiliate is not an employee, works their own hours, and covers their own expenses. They must have worker’s compensation clearance and will be covered if they are in Saskatchewan by Safe and Trusted Canada. 

They must have worker’s compensation clearance if they reside out of the province of Saskatchewan or be a business operation in another province. 

The ideal client will need to have:

  • High-Speed Internet
  • Preferably a desktop with two or more monitors
  • Superior computer skills including research, and database entry. 
  • Superior writing and verbal communication skills.
  • Long distance plan, mobile phone and professional office setup. 

Our structure gives the independent affiliate commission on all subscription types for both initial and renewal accounts for all paid accounts.  Ask us more phone or email.  

We would also work with non-profit organizations giving their membership more exposure on the internet with a direct link to that organization in the business profile.  For non-profits, this would give a one-time referral fee. 

In addition, any new products such as video, reputation management and other products we market are available to you to refer to other businesses.  This includes video, reputation management software and social media software.  

We train you in what we want as an organization. Compensation is restricted to paid account referrals and renewals.   If interested, and you are a fit for us as Independent Business Affiliate then contact us at office@safeandtrusted.com

What is an Information Only Profile?

Safe and Trusted Canada (The Site) provides information to consumers about businesses through an Information Only profile. 

Businesses applying for all subscription types have to be approved by Safe and Trusted Canada taking into consideration years in business and their overall business record.   See other Subscription Types.

Information Only profiles produce a business profile based on what consumers would readily find about the company on the internet. 

It may include contact data for the company if available as well as links to social media, and review sites that contain the business profile if available.

Safe and Trusted Canada “The Site” now allows reviews from consumers.  Information Only profiles do not have the ability to respond or to post reviews because they do have account status.  This will give the consumer information that may not be available unless the business takes out an account.   

Users have the responsibility to view all the links, ratings, and reviews. The review sites can be positive or negative.   See the Better Business Links if they are available.  The links can change at any time.  The business as an Information Only profile is as it is highlighted ” Information Only.” 

Information Only profiles can ask for archival of their listing if they are no longer in business.  If Google and Better Business Business Bureau have the business as closed, then we will also archive and remove.  They can also ask for removal as they own their business information.  Safe and Trusted Canada is a neutral site. 


As a business,  if your Information Only Profile needs updating, the company can contact The Site.  There is no obligation for you to apply for an account, but suggest this as an option to grow your business further at no cost.  If you are out of business please advise so that site admin can archive your profile. 

In order to provide truth and transparency to the consumer we may provide alerts to the consumer where there is concerns with review sites or unknown credentials.  It is best for the consumer to check the review links provided to ensure the information is current. 

An account holder has responsibility and accountability to ensure that they do not place credentials into their profile that they do not possess.  The account holder can process reviews from their customers including posting those reviews to their profile. It is essential they do not post reviews for anyone connected with the business directly or indirectly.  See Alerts Criteria Applicable to Account Holders.

Safe and Trusted Canada allows the consumer to make their decisions on the quality of the links as well as the quality of the content.  There is no interpretation nor does Safe and Trusted Canada endorse, validate, recommend or suggest a business.  We provide a system where the consumer sorts and selects businesses based on the criteria the consumer feels important to them.

Consumer Equote

We are pleased to now offer Consumer Equote.  

Businesses with premium subscriptions become eligible to receive requests from consumers who wish to gather quotes from several businesses at one time. without making a phone call.  

This benefit allows the consumer ask for quotes from up to 10 businesses at one time.  This saves the consumer time and money and is only done after the consumer has listed the credentials they are looking for in hiring a business in the first place.  All equote requests will be sent to admin staff at Safe and Trusted Canada. 

The consumer selects up to 10 businesses if available and places their email contact into the form as well as their phone number, first and last name.   The consumer adds content to give the business more information as to what they are requesting.  EG. Roofing quote for 1000 square foot house.  Looking for a quote from business who provides total cleanup and hauling of debris away as part of the overall price.   

Admin contacts the consumer to ensure that they are a viable lead or that our Site can provide assistance.   The businesses on our Site will have generally more qualifications, credentials, and history than other sites where there is no system of sort and selection involved. 

The business seen first in the database has a greater opportunity to receive requests.  This is a great lead system for the business as well as saving time for the consumer.

The process is simple.   See the video

20 Key Elements of Safe and Trusted Canada

What are the key elements and differences between Safe and Trusted Canada and some other options available?  

 

The management of Safe and Trusted Canada has been working with business owners since 2005. We listened to business owners to develop a database and platform that makes sense for both the consumer and the business owner.   

Some attributes of our Site that may be different are as follows

1) A business can ask for removal from the Site at any time. See Exceptions

2) The Site starts with an Information Only profile based on what the consumer would readily find on the internet.  This can be removed instantly as the business owner cannot violate issues mentioned in the exceptions above. This is different to other Sites that capture the information and then keep that information forever. 

3) The Site provides public links to Google Reviews, Better Business Bureau and Safe and Trusted Canada.  It does this to show impartiality.  The Site provides private links to trademarked sites to the business owner and may choose to publically link to other sites for certain business categories. 

4) The Site platform highlights a platform where the business owner with an account can clearly articulate what makes them different. This is something that is often missed on business websites.  Other additional areas include their about us information.  The business can list all their contact information, as well as all the business credentials.

5) The Site allows the business owner with account access to list links to all their affiliations, the business website, as well as other contact information. The Site gives the owner of the business the ability to use the Safe and Trusted Logo link from their website to their platform on Safe and Trusted Canada. 

6) The Site allows those with premium accounts more presentation options including up to 10 PDF uploads, 24 images, and up to 10 Youtube links.  The distinct advantage of this is that more information is immediately available to the consumer that may not be possible on some business websites. 

7) The Site has its own review system that is controlled by the business owner. It is controlled by the business owner as a means of managing their business.  The business owner decides on the reviews that are posted.  In this way,  they can always be on top of their business and not worry about the potential content of the review.  They can send out the review link through email, their phone, or give it to their staff to give to the consumer.  This encourages reviews on every transaction your business has and as a business owner, you need this to ensure you are not blindsided.  Please note that negative reviews may not be posted but the negative review will be part of the aggregate score for the business. 

8) Remember the previous days before the internet and instant reviews. Remember the sign at the counter asking customers to tell everyone if the business had served them well, but asking the customer to tell the business owner immediately when they had not.  Our process gives the business owner that ability while giving the customer immediate access to other review sites to post a review if there is no response from the proprietor of the business.

10) Every business profile reminds the consumer and the business that Safe and Trusted Canada does not validate, recommend or accredit a business.

11) All transactions and interactions are between the business owner and the consumer.  Safe and Trusted Canada does not offer mediation services or arbitration services.   There is no fail-safe system offered to the consumer. 

12)  A business may be an Information Only profile, but may be turned down for account access. The business does not qualify for an account if they have poor reviews or does not sufficient information available for this site to be a benefit to consumers.  Our target group is legitimate businesses that are licensed.  If the business has information that we need to verify, then they can apply once verification has been received.

13)  Consumers can search for credentials using our automatic search functions which filter so that it meets the criteria required by the user. 

14)  Safe and Trusted Canada does not give the business an automatic grade or star rating.   The Site may produce ratings for hotels and restaurants based on a composite review of several review sites.  The Site may produce a credibility score review based on what the business lists as their business credentials.  All other ratings must be initiated by consumers or anyone having a financial transaction with the business. 

15)  Safe and Trusted Canada does not use algorithms.  

16)  Safe and Trusted Canada offers premium account holders some new abilities.  The Site focuses on what makes the business different, and who is the ideal client of the business.  The business owner has unlimited linking power to affiliations, job websites, as well as the ability to place discounts into their profile that can readily be searched by consumers from home. page.  All the links are reduced in length to give a perfect presentation of the business. 

17)  Please note that we now have Discount and Promotions categories as well as Job posting ability on the Site as a new feature.

18)  The differences between one subscription level and another are the number of subcategories, the number of trade areas, and position in the database provincially, by category and by city or town trade area.  The credibility of the business is not suggested by the subscription level.

19)  Safe and Trusted Canada can provide an excellent platform to advertise and manage your business. Great businesses have the ability to shine so that their trust levels are readily apparent. The platform gives the consumer everything about the business in one place. 

20) Safe and Trusted Canada now offers other software options including Reputation Management and Social Media Marketing with competitive pricing and in Canadian dollars. Remember we are a Canadian business. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.
