Each province has major trade areas. Each major trade area may have other cities as secondary cities in a major trade area. Towns follow with each town listed alphabetically in a major and secondary trade area. Each entry will have a PDF of all the trade areas of the province with a listing displaying a hotel from that trade area. Remember a trade area may encompass other cities and towns.
This video is about managing your trade areas for your business profile.
We will use the profile Test Us Out as a demo account to ensure that understand the content management system.
