See Application Manage Your Listing Profile
Each business owner manages their business profile completely and controls their categories, trade areas, business content, business credentials, social media and reviews. See how to manage your business profile.
Monthly subscriptions paid yearly are 18.58 plus GST. Monthly subscriptions may be cancelled with 60 days' notice. The daily investment, if paid yearly, not including tax, is $0.54.
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 paid annually in a one-time payment. The daily investment, if paid yearly, not including tax, is $0.47. The monthly subscription is reduced to $16.50 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. Your business needs to be registered and licensed and cannot have known issues readily apparent to consumers. Businesses applying for all subscription types must be approved by Safe and Trusted Canada, considering years in business and their overall business record. 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 to 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.
See the Standard Subscription. See the video below.
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 video 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.

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. Link your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada, and your linking bypasses the competition.
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, 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 negative review blindsides a business. 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 ask for feedback from their customers proactively 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.
Is Your Business Hiring Staff. We can help you with that. See the video
The business will go to their content management area and select the Now Hiring area. Then the business adds the appropriate category under the Job category that is at the top of all categories and is seen first in all trade areas in Canada. The business owner can place what they are looking for in terms of staffing requirements.
If the business has any paid subscription they can place a link along with content into their Now Hiring area. The link will allow the consumer to place the link in their browser and research further. If the business has a Professional Subscription then the link automatically shortens taking the potential consumer to your website or any other link that would highlight further your Now Hiring offer.
If the business has a Standard, Advanced or Professional subscription they would also be able to add a downloadable PDF for potential hires with even more detail as to applying for a position at their particular business.
The information will be there for every view in your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type. All communication between the business owner and the prospective new hire is confidential to each other. Safe and Trusted Canada does not intervene between the parties involved.
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.
Does your business use discounts or promotions. See the video

The business owner must ensure that they do not post reviews from anyone connected with their company. See Alerts.
The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled. The company may also be archived.
