There is a discount offer for businesses in provinces under 1.5 million people. There are further discounts if the business has current accreditation with the Better Business Bureau or if the business needs to belong to a professional association just to be able to conduct business.

The business has an option to double their trade areas for their subscription level for a yearly amount of $100.00 plus GST or a monthly amount of $8.33 plus GST. The Professional subscription would increase from 12 to 24 trade areas. 

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.

If your business is situated in a province with less than 1.5 million people then the Professional Subscription has a $100 discount. Your professional subscription is reduced to $399.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription. Monthly subscriptions are $35.25 plus GST. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $1.09

Do you qualify for the Accredited and Professional Discount?  If your business has current accreditation with Better Business Bureau or needs to have a professional affiliation in order to conduct business, then you may wish to apply for the accredited and Professional Discount?  Your Professional  Subscription has a $100.00 discount.  The Professional Subscription is reduced to $399.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription. Monthly subscriptions are $35.25 plus GST. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $1.09. 

The Accredited and Professional Discount can be coupled with the Provincial Discount for even greater savings.  Your total discounts for both could amount to $200.00 on a yearly subscription which is $299.00 per year plus GST.  Monthly subscriptions are reduced by $8.33 per month for each discount.  Applying both discounts reduces the monthly amount by $16.66 per month. 

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.

 

This account type provides the account holder with access to place up to 60 subcategories into their profile.  The account holder has the ability to place that profile in up to 12 trade areas adjacent to the business location.  In addition, the business can add up to 10 PDF documents, 12 images and embed up to 10 YouTube videos in their business profile. 

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   

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

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition and the 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.  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. 

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.

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 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 professional 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.

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. 

The business has an option to double their trade areas for their subscription level for a yearly amount of $100.00 plus GST or a monthly amount of $8.33 plus GST. The Plus subscription would increase from 1 to 2 trade areas. 

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.

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.

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 closest to the physical location of the business. location.  

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

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.  

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition and the 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.  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. 

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.

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.

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 is now only one factor in that subscription level.  The Credentials of the business are another.  

What is the credentials score for your business?

This ensures that the consumer is always looking at the business with the longest history with the most business credentials at any subscription level.   If the business moves from a Professional Subscription to a Basic Subscription, the business loses not only their subscription level, they also do not retain the date of their original signup.  They do retain their credentials score.  The automatic display will list the business under all other Basic Subscriptions for that trade area, category.  The automatic display works in a similar way going from a Basic Subscription level to a Paid Subscription level.

Consumers can refine their search by viewing the external review sites of the business as well as reviews generated on the Site itself.

How Reviews Are Processed?

Safe and Trusted Canada has a review system

Please be advised that the following video is being updated to reflect our new policies. 

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

A consumer can leave a review but it will be only visible to Safe and Trusted Canada but will not be available to the business owner or consumers. information.  Safe and Trusted Canada will 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 business 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 who show high reviews from customers as a composite review.  It will be dated and clearly 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.  Businesses 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 business.  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 on different businesses 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 clearly 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 businesses 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 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.

Reviews must be posted by the business owner through their account access. 

The review format gives the consumer the decision to leave a positive, neutral or negative review. It also gives the consumer their opinion on whether they are likely or less likely to recommend this business to others. The review is verified by the business owner 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 properly 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 for the purposes of correcting 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 can 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.

  • 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

Safe and Trusted Canada makes it easier for businesses to display why consumers should choose them over others.  So as an Independent Business Affiliate it is not your job to select and sort businesses based on your personal opinion.  The system we have will automatically provide information necessary for the consumer to sort and select businesses based on credentials, review sites, and content from the business owner.  This is why we place the following content in every business profile.

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. 

 

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.

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 business.

Safe and Trusted Canada provides links to everything that we can readily find about the business.   The links could show excellence or 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 important 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 other 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 information if there are changes.  Archival of the business occurs if the business is no longer in operation.  The business owner can contact us and we are more than happy to inform 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.

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.

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 Does Our Credentials Platform Work With Account Access?

Safe and Trusted Canda gives a platform for businesses to advertise, market and grow their business.

The Site will not approve account status for businesses with poor ratings in general or if the business has an F-Rating with Better Business Bureau.

The consumer decides on the credentials they want in the business and whether or not the reviews on the business from this site or other sites warrant further contact. 

There are many government and city rules regarding licensing and legal requirements. The enforcement of those licenses and laws belongs to governments and cities.  

As the database is public, government agencies are welcome to use our database to contact business owners at any time if their records indicate that the business is missing certain factors.   

Every province is different, every city and town are different not only in what is required but what in fact is enforced.  

Consumers can use our search functions to filter their requests. Businesses are penalized if they list credentials they do not possess.  A business that lists credentials they cannot support if challenged will have an alert put on their profile.

See Alerts 

Safe and Trusted Canada advises the consumer to seek as many credentials as possible in shortlisting businesses that they may wish to use.  See the links for more information. 

What are the requirements for my province?   

What do we tell Consumers?  

Look for Years in Business.  

Is Advertised Name of Business Properly Registered?  

Look for Contractors That Carry Worker’s Comp and Liability Insurance. 

If you are a regular business we suggest that you look to gain trust with consumers by having at least the following credentials.  If you are a new business then you can start and add credentials as you achieve those elements.  Do not add business credentials you do not have.  Click onto the image to expand if necessary.  See below.     

 

If you are a contractor,  place the regular credentials as a business as well as those you have as a contractor above.  If you do not have all the criteria in place, you can add it as you obtain it.  Click onto the image to expand. Do not add any credentials you do not have. 

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.

Do You Have a Professional Affiliation?

Our system was designed to allow consumers to sort and select a business based on business history, affiliations, credentials, and accountability. 

Are you currently any of the following:

  • Accredited with Better Business Bureau.
  • Have a professional affiliation connected with your business category.
  • Have a website that details products and services. 
  • Advertised Name is Registered
  • Legal Requirements for your trade area and category is currently in place. 
  • If you are a contractor, do you have liability insurance?
  • If you are a contractor, do you carry worker’s compensation? 

If you do, then we develop your profile for you with links directly to your affiliations and research the internet to maximize your profile for your subscription level.  This saves you trying to figure things out or paying someone else to do it for you.  You see the profile within 72 hours and can make any changes afterward through your content management system for your account.

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.  

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.

Please Note That We Place the Following Content Into Every Profile.

  • Information Only Profiles are as advertised to the public on the internet. 
  • Use this Site as only one source of information and seek other sources if possible. 
  • The Site as a matter of policy does not recommend, accredit, suggest, promote, or validate any business. Consumers do that through reviews.

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

Account Holders Can Add Optional Custom Video

Our system allows a business to purchase a custom photo montage for their business or a media release up to 60 seconds in length.

Video investment for your business is one of the best marketing tools you can use for your business.   

The investment starts at $599.00.  

The size of your video can be anywhere up to one minute in total length.   The video is yours forever at no extra costs.  You can place it on your video channel, your website or your social media. This makes perfect sense for your business and the video is sent to you in MP4 format after your approval and payment. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have your script and content.  

Please be advised that we will not do videos for everyone.  We work with credible businesses and our ideal client is a business owner that understands their ideal market and what makes them different from their competition. 

A 30-second video normally has 5 to 6 lines of text with 12 images.  A 60-second video has about 10 to 11 lines of text with about 15 images.   The business must supply their own images.   

The client is responsible for their content, but we will assist if required. Video engages the client.  Some indicate that that video increases the overall profile on Google.  See Link.  

The client is responsible for all uses of logo use and should consider what logos they use in their video.  Placing a logo in a video that you are no longer able to use could cause you problems as a business owner and ultimate loss or your investment.  

Safe and Trusted Canada gives video credits to businesses that refer other businesses to our Site and that referral becomes a paid subscription type for one year.  

See Samples of our videos that we have done for clients.

 

 

 

What is Your Credentials Score?

The implementation of the Credentials Score is now in place for all businesses. 

Whenever we deal with a business in the future through account access, credentials will be part of the overall presentation of the business and will be one more part of giving consumers accurate information. 

The credentials score is the number generated to separate one business versus another.  Hotels and Restaurants will have a credentials score based on a composite review of review sites. 

The credentials score for all other businesses will be a point system based on what the business indicates in their Standard Credentials.  The Standard Credentials ask the business owner to establish their current credentials including licensing, legal requirements, advertised name registration, guarantee that credentials are accurate and that the business has a complaint system directly to the business owner.  The business receives 1 point for every applicable item. 

Years in business matter.  There are three options.  10 or more, 5 or more and 3 or more.  Select only one of the three options.   If you have under 3 years in business your allocation is zero points.  If you have 3 years in business your allocation is 1 point,  5 years in business allocate 2 points and 10 or more allocate 3 points. 

If the business is a contractor then the business owner checks off all the Contractor Credentials applicable to their business.  There are 14 possible areas that separate one contractor versus another.  1 point is awarded for everything checked off.  

There is a form included in the application where the owner can simply check off what applies to their business, or it can be completed with a phone call with the owner of the business. 

Remember the business needs to ensure whatever credentials they check off are accurate.  Alerts generation occurs for false credentials with archival happening one year afterward. 

The credentials score will now affect the business order of display in addition to subscription type and date added to  our database.  This will give great businesses, even more, an opportunity to shine on our database. 

How We List Hotels?

Our mechanism for listing Hotels as Information Only profiles does not follow our normal format for other business types. 

Information Only profiles give the business only one category and one trade area. 

Presentation for Hotels would have to list room and hotel amenities and that would mean that some hotels may have up to 40 subcategories just to give that hotel an accurate presentation of that property.  In some areas of Canada, we have listed Information Only profiles for this business category.

Unfortunately, because there are thousands of hotels in Canada we will not be able to list all of them unless they apply for account status. 

Hotels in one city may be in close proximity to restaurants in other cities and the consumer should be able to view all their options.    We have done this in selected areas. Moving forward hotels will need account status and trade assignments are according to subscription type.  See our business order of display

The Hotel may be listed in our database according to the composite review of all their review sites. will need account status.  

Each account type gives the hotel more presentation options just like other business types.  Trade areas and Categories will not be one of them as the hotel will automatically retain what is listed as an Information Only profile. 

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.

No Risk to the Legitimate Business Owner

Safe and Trusted Canada understands that every business owner worries about being in any business directory that may impact their business. 

There is no risk to business with or from Safe and Trusted Canada.

These reasons may give you why we make that claim. 

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 other 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 information if there are changes.  Archival of the business occurs if the business 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.  

What is an Information Only Profile 

Account Holders can add unlimited content to their business profile. The business owner has an enormous opportunity to add what may be missing on their current website and is a positive way to increase more traffic for the business.  Since the owner provides the content or authorizes our Admin to take current content provided by the business website, there can be no risk to the business owner.  The business moves to an Information Only profile if the business no longer has account access.   

There are only three key areas of concern, but will not affect legitimate business owners.  a) the business owner places credentials into their profile they do not possess, b) the business owner posts reviews about their business from staff or people connected with the business and c) the business is no longer in operation.  In all three cases, we place an alert on the business profile for one year. 

See Alerts. 

Account Holders control the review process.  They must agree that the customer giving the review is, in fact, their customer.  They can post a review, respond to a review or reject a  review and deal with the client in private.  The business has unlimited opportunity to get as much feedback as possible and handle issues promptly while posting reviews immediately when you and your staff have done well.   The business cannot post reviews that are paid or that are directly connected to the business in any way.   

Account Holders can place their business credentials into their profile and users can sort and select companies based on credentials that the consumer is seeking. The user will check the credentials that the company places in their profile.    Now if a company puts credentials into their profile, they do not have we put an alert on your profile. As an example, if you stated you are licensed and legal, and you were not, your business will be flagged with an alert for one year.   Safe and Trusted Canada has to protect the credibility of the website as well. 

The Site provides a free Basic Account to most businesses that are seeking customers and want to expand and grow their business.  We do not refund payments because we provide a Basic Account at no charge, and we see this as a trial account option before embarking to higher account status.    

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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE PLACE THE FOLLOWING CONTENT INTO EVERY PROFILE

  • Information Only Profiles are as advertised to the public on the internet. 
  • The Site as a matter of policy does not recommend, accredit, suggest, promote, or validate any business. Consumers do that through reviews.
  • The Site provides public links to review sites that permit us to publish those links.
  • The Site provides private links to all other trademarked review sites about the business directly to the business only through their account access.     
  • Subscription types give business owners different advertising options, but the Site does not suggest that credibility determines subscription level.  
  • Users can use the advanced features of the Credentials Search to determine the degree of reliability for each business.  
  • It is the responsibility of the user to check the credentials advertised by the business.  
  • Notify Site Admin immediately where the business is advertising credentials they do not have, or information is not current.
  • The company and the consumer entirely determine transactions with each other. 
  • Safe and Trusted Canada does not mediate complaints, issues, or concerns.  
  • Seek legal advice for complex transactions.
  • Protect your interests as removal of the business may occur at any time.
