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.

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.

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. 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.

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 only to 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.

The business owner agrees that they will receive emails from Safe and Trusted Canada regarding customer reviews, instructions, updates and monthly newsletters. See your content management system for your business in the video below. 

See our Video Tutorials.

As with all subscriptions, the company must be responsible and accountable.  Business owners with subscriptions must ensure the accuracy of credentials in their profile. 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.

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.

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.

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? 

 

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 Site provides private links to all other trademarked review sites about the business directly to the business only through their account access.

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.

c) The account holder has gone out of 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.

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.
