Consumer Request Equote

Safe and Trusted Canada offers Request  Equote to consumers as a part of our total search function for businesses. 

This is now part of our application form 

See application form. Credibility Starts Here

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.   

The consumer selects the trade area and then the business category.  

The consumer selects the standard credentials they are looking to business to have first.  Here they will decide on how many years in business are necessary, whether the advertised name of the business is registered and if all the legal requirements for the trade area and category are in place.  The business owner has to guarantee what they place in their credentials area is accurate or if it is subsequently shown that that the credentials are false, the business will be faced with an alert notification on their profile for one year and will be removed. 

If the business category is a contractor, the consumer yet again determines the contractor credentials they are looking at the business to possess.  Again the credentials placed into the profile by the business owner must be accurate. 

The consumer fills out their name, phone number and email address and enough detail that makes it easy for the business to contact you and arrange a quote. 

Please note that it is up to the business owner if they want to opt into the request equote system.   They do this through the content management system of the Safe and Trusted platform for their business. 

Only businesses that have agreed to be part of the request equote will be seen by the consumer for selection purposes.      

This benefit allows the consumer to 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.   

The consumer can select 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 a business that 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 Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The company may also be archived.

Bypass your competition.  Simply link your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada and your linking bypasses the competition.  See the video.

 

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.

What is your business credentials score?  See the video. 

 

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.

The credential score for hotels and restaurants is the composite review done by Safe and Trusted Canada.  All the review sites for a composite review and that average is the credentials score for that business.  

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  See the video. 

 

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.  go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the affiliation’s name, 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 professional subscription, all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website and links back to certain parts of your website.    Using Links in Your Business Presentation.

Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews.  See the tutorial   

See the video about reviews.

 

All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that you are always on top of your business as a business owner.  You can 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 can 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. 

One of the problems with reviews is that too often a business is blindsided by a negative review.  Never be blindsided again.   See the video.

 

One of the problems most businesses experience is not asking for reviews. They are worried about negative reviews and are not proactive in asking for feedback.  

The Safe and Trusted Review system allows the business owner to proactively ask for feedback from their customers and instantly become aware of issues unknown to the business owner.

Use proactive reviews to ensure that issues are quickly identified to the business owner.  This will enable the business owner to quickly mitigate issues and mediate problems quickly with customers before they escalate out of hand with reviews on websites or even complaints to Better Business Bureau.

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 $499.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription paid annually in a one-time payment.   The daily investment, if paid yearly, not including tax, is $1.36.  The monthly subscription is reduced to $43.58 plus GST.  The reason for this discount is to provide equalization of our services as some cities in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia have a greater population base than some of the smaller provinces.   

We have had several subscription requests from marketers.  We work with the business owner and not marketers.  Marketers are interested in Search Engine Optimization and backlinks.  Safe and Trusted Canada is interested in an accurate representation of the company including business and contractor credentials.   The business owner can authorize as many accounts as necessary to handle their business interests for one particular company or multiple businesses.  Our focus is on Canada as our name implies. 

Our platform is unique and provides a system for legitimate businesses to market to consumers in a way that makes it easier for both the business and the consumer.

All our account types are for legitimate businesses.  The business owner needs to list their business credentials and cannot have known issues readily apparent to consumers.     Our system makes it easy for the business.  See the video below.

 

Your business is important to you.  Why waste your time and money.  Let us generate your profile for you so that you can determine what your best options are for your business.  All that is required is an email from the owner of the business. We only deal with the business owner or their designated marketing staff.  The reason for this is we want your profile maximized with you the owner in full control through your account management platform. 

Premium Subscriptions Increase Views 

See the video about the Professional Subscription. See the video below.

 

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 20 trade areas adjacent to the business location.  In addition, the business can add up to 10 PDF documents, 20 images and embed up to 10 YouTube videos in their business profile

Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or electronic transfer. 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.

The business is in the first tier of the database.  See the video.

 

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 according to our Business Order of Display

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 

Bypass your competition.  Simply link your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada and your linking bypasses the competition.  See the video.

 

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.

What is your business credentials score?  See the video. 

 

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.

The credential score for hotels and restaurants is the composite review done by Safe and Trusted Canada.  All the review sites for a composite review and that average is the credentials score for that business.  

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  See the video. 

 

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.  go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the affiliation’s name, 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 professional subscription, all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website and links back to certain parts of your website.    Using Links in Your Business Presentation.

See the whole picture about a business.  See the video

 

One of our platform’s benefits 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 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.  See the tutorial   

See the video about reviews.

 

All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that you are always on top of your business as a business owner.  You can 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 can 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. 

One of the problems with reviews is that too often a business is blindsided by a negative review.  Never be blindsided again.   See the video.

 

One of the problems most businesses experience is not asking for reviews. They are worried about negative reviews and are not proactive in asking for feedback.  

The Safe and Trusted Review system allows the business owner to proactively ask for feedback from their customers and instantly become aware of issues unknown to the business owner.

Use proactive reviews to ensure that issues are quickly identified to the business owner.  This will enable the business owner to quickly mitigate issues and mediate problems quickly with customers before they escalate out of hand with reviews on websites or even complaints to Better Business Bureau.

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.  This may still show up on Google pending their update of our Site.   

This ensures that our Site is up to date and that we are not adding businesses that have indicated they no longer want to be part of our Site. 

 

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 Site’s credibility and all businesses on the Site.  If they do, the company has committed a major violation of our Site policies. It 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. It 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 company may also be archived.

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, considering years in business and their overall business record.   See other Subscription Types.

See the application.  Start Growing Your Business Today

Information Only profiles produce a business profile based on what consumers would readily find about the company on the internet.  Account-holders can manage their complete profile.  

See how to manage your business profile.

It may include contact data for the company and links to social media and review sites containing 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 post reviews because they 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, we will also archive and remove it.  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 the site admin can archive your profile.

Canada Listings by Province and City

Find Information you need as a consumer about businesses in Canada.  

Our Site is expanding and new areas will have less content. 

See links to review sites and use our credentials filters to sort and select businesses based on what is important to you as a consumer. 

Remember the business can list their business as a Basic Subscription at no charge.  Each trade area will open up into multiple primary categories.  When clicked onto any primary category in blue, it means that there are subcategories and business listings in that category.  As an example see Saskatoon. 

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 alphabetical order with the exception of Jobs and Promotional which are at the top of every trade area.  

The other trade areas listed here are major population areas for that province

A business should select the primary category first and then the first subcategory in that primary to be properly indexed on our Site. 

 All profiles are listed according to our Business Order of Display.

Become an 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 by 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, we offer a range of other products like reputation management, social media marketing and search engine optimization.    

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. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived. 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.
  • Site Admin provides links to other review locations in the business profile that the business owner cannot delete or change.  
  • Check Better Business Bureau Report if available. 
  • 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.

 

 

 

Business Order of Display

The order of display affects how the consumer will view businesses on this website.   See Business Order of Display Video. 

 

The order of display is not a factor if the company uses the Safe and Trusted logo and code 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  listed by the business owner determine placement.   

Tier 1 – Professional – See Professional Subscription
Tier 2-  Advanced –  See Advanced Subscription
Tier 3-  Standard – See Standard Subscription
Tier 4 – Plus  – See Plus Subscription
Tier 5 – Basic – See Basic Subscription
Tier 6 – Information Only –See Information Only

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 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,  The consumer will not see the content of the review but will see a star rating.  Each subsequent review adds to the star rating for the business so even if a business does not have an account the consumer will see an aggregate of the reviews received at Safe and Trusted Canada. 

Safe and Trusted Canada might complete composite reviews based on our research of other review sites.  They will be for the hospitality industry which includes accommodations and restaurants.  If a restaurant or accommodation has a Safe and Trusted Canada composite review, the review score will become the credentials score. 

 

Businesses that have accounts can handle reviews, post them and, of course, respond to them.  If you have a complaint against a business  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 and preferably a 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 company may also be archived.

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.

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.

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.

What is Your Credentials Score?

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

See the application. Credibility Starts Here

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 the subscription type and date added to our database.  This will give great businesses, even more, an opportunity to shine on our database. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The company may also be archived.

  • Professional presentation of your business.
  • List your business credentials and contractor credentials. 
  • Link your website your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada.
  • Ask customers to review your business.  
  • List all your affiliations.

Should you be concerned about the value we suggest that you start out with a free Basic Subscription.  If you are concerned with the value of a paid subscription we suggest you purchase a monthly subscription that can be cancelled with 60 days’ notice.   The Site never wants to be in a position where you are paying for any services where you as a business owner do not see the value.
