What is the Plus Subscription?

Safe and Trusted Canada ( The Site) provides the option for The Standard Subscription for $99.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription.  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 

If your business is accredited with Better Business Bureau or you must have a professional affiliation in order to conduct business the yearly subscription rebate is $99.00. The Plus account which is at $99.00 per year is at no charge as long as that accreditation or business regulation is in place.  There are limitations to this offer. 

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 and may place that profile in up to 5 trade areas adjacent to the business location. 

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 $8.33.00 plus GST.  

The business is in the fourth tier of the database.  Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles and Basic Subscriptions and any others that sign up after you in the Plus Account. The  Plus Account business is listed in the database according to our Business Order of Display.

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.

Safe and Trusted Canada is looking for businesses that have an advertised name that is registered, as well as meeting licensing requirements for the physical trade area of the business.  Years in business matters on our website.  We are looking for businesses that can clearly articulate that in their credentials in the content management area provided in account access. 

In addition to the Business credentials if you are contractor  The Site allows the contractor to indicate that they have liability insurance, worker’s compensation, and warranties in writing.   We are looking for businesses that can clearly articulate that in their credentials in the content management area provided in account access. 

The business agrees that Safe and Trusted Canada can use data from your business website with your permission to enhance your profile for your listing.  Our staff develop a profile based on your website and other internet content.  Safe and Trusted Canada will assign your selected company representative or representatives with account privileges to control and manage your listing.  All we need is an email from the owner of the company to set this up for you at no charge.  

We will now also send the business owner a reputation management report at no charge so that you have a better idea of all the mentions, review sites, and social media mentions about your business.  We only deal with the business owner for issuing reputation reports.   This will give you an independent review and you may wish to purchase a yearly option at just $39.00 per month.   See More

How We List Restaurants?

Our mechanism for listing  Restaurants 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 Restaurants would have to list cuisines and that would mean that some restaurants may have up to 20 subcategories just to give that restaurant an accurate presentation of that restaurant.  Unfortunately, because there are thousands of restaurants in Canada we will not be able to list all of them unless they apply for account status. 

Restaurants in one city may be in close proximity to restaurants in other cities and the consumer should be able to view all their options.   As a result, some restaurants may be listed in several other trade areas as an Information Only profile.  Restaurants with account status will be listed according to the trade areas allowed or their subscription type.  

The restaurant may be listed in our database according to the composite review of all their review sites.  Not all restaurants will have a composite review unless they have account status.  See our Business Order of Display. 

Each account type gives the Restaurant more presentation options just like other business types.  Trade areas and Categories will not be one of them as the restaurant 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.

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.

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. 

Learn More Before Selecting a City or Town Link.

In the selected city or town page, the user will see current information displaying both primary and subcategories in blue if there is content.  If there is no content, then the category will be in black and not linked. Information Only profiles are as advertised on the internet. A business may be removed from our database at any time on request of the business.   

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.
