What is a Region or Trade Area?

iStock_000019837764_MediumThe first trade or region for the business must be their physical location for Information Only Profiles and Basic Subscriptions.

See all trade areas 

Additional trade areas or regions are assigned with  Standard, Advanced, and Professional subscriptions.

Provincial trade regions or trade areas are automatic.

The Standard Subscription can have up to 5 total trade areas where one those trade areas or regions are the physical location of the business.  The Advanced subscription can have up to 10 trade regions, and the Professional can have up to 20 trade areas.  Please note that the business must serve those trade areas.

The professional subscription can supersede their 20 trade areas and place their business in any trade area where there are no paid subscriptions.  If there is a paid subscription in the area, the business cannot use their subscription level in that area unless it is one of their 20 assigned trade areas for their business.  

If the business is a contractor and wishes to deal directly with customers in that trade area, then they need to ensure they meet the requirements of that trade area.  

If the business supplies products and wants to advertise directly that the consumer should come to their location, there are no licensing requirements involved.

The following trade areas are now active in Canada, and this is a significant opportunity for businesses to be seen first in a trade area if they have the professional subscription level.


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.
