Choose one, several or ALL options!

If you’re Canadian, there are many ways for you to be included on the Canadian Only website. Below are the basic types: FREE listings, flags and Facebook icons, image links, Did You Know ads and blog posts. You can also have multiple listings for nominal fee, and if you have multiple locations, you may qualify for a Canada-wide listing.

Choose one, several, or all of these options! Express your interest through our contact form and we’ll be happy to assist you!

 

Example of Free Listings

 

 

FREE Listings

Every Canadian business, organization, artist and artisan is allowed 1 free text listing with a link to your website (must be a unique domain name URL, not a subpage, with the exception of a Facebook page URL).* See the categories available for our listings.

Multiple listings

If you have more than one location, subsequent listings are $25 per year.*

Canada-wide listings

Our Canada-wide section lists franchises, chains, corporate stores and government departments. If a business or organization with the same name operates in multiple locations across the country, or if they are established in multiple provinces, they may qualify for one free listing in this section. If all of their locations are within one province, the one free listing may go on the city/area indicated as their primary address on their website (usually their head office).

Reasons we don’t list

1. Non-Canadian location
2. No location (city and province/territory) is provided
3. No unique domain or Facebook page URL is provided
4. Illegal activity, offensive content, or deemed inappropriate/misaligned with our mission (for example, partisan politics)
5. Time-sensitive (non-recurring) events

*If your business changes (for example, no longer in Canada, or change of business/name or type) please notify us. If you do not notify us and we learn of a change that no longer aligns with Canadian Only, the listing and link will be removed. See Disclaimer.

Submit your FREE listing

 

Example of Flags & Facebook icons

Flags & Facebook

Made in Canada Canadian flag next to listing:

FREE until December 31, 2021!

A flag displayed next to a product listing on the Products and Services pages mean that at least 51% of the business’s products for sale are designed, crafted, handmade, manufactured and/or made in Canada (using at least 51% Canadian-sourced materials).

A flag displayed next to a franchise listing in the Canada-wide section means that the business is Canadian-owned.

We began adding flags in early 2020. If your listing doesn’t have a flag and qualifies for one, contact us and we may add one. If we discover that your business does not qualify, we will remove the flag.

Facebook URL Facebook icon next to listing

If you have your unique domain URL listed, but also want to have a Facebook icon with a link to your Facebook page it’s a one-off $10 fee.* (Facebook icons don’t apply to Facebook-only URL listings.)

Example of Image links

Image Links

On any interest page, businesses, artists and artisans may purchase a space for an image to appear immediately above their text link listing. The image is linked to their website’s URL.

Images must be supplied by the business and must comply with quality standards specified. Submit the highest quality image possible, uncropped. We reserve the right to reject any image that is inappropriate for our website, or of a substandard quality.*

Limited time offer

Province page > Interest category: $20
Under each province > main Interest pages: $15
Under each province > area or city pages: $10

The Image Link ad is guaranteed for one month. After that, we’ll leave it on the page until the spot is purchased by someone else. To guarantee your spot for more than one month, simply let us know in advance, and we will set up a plan for you.

*We reserve the right to approve only such images that reflect the purpose of this website. We we will work with you to achieve the best placement and most suitable image to reflect your business in the best light.

Example of "Did you know?" ad

‘Did You Know’ Ads

There are options on every page for a ‘Did you know’ space to be purchased where your business is relevant to the location and subject that the page represents. Contact us with your expression of interest. See an example of a ‘Did you know’ space at the bottom of this (or any) page.

Limited time offer

First tab position $30

The ‘Did you know’ ad is guaranteed for one month. After that, we’ll leave it on the page until the spot is purchased by someone else; and we’ll move it to the second, third or subsequent tab position. To guarantee your spot in the first tab position for more than one month, simply let us know in advance, and we will set up a plan for you.

Example of Blog Post

Blog Posts

If we like your product or service, we’ll plug it on our blog. (We’ll never write a bad review. If we can’t proceed with a blog post for your business, we’ll let you know personally.)

The blog post is the best value option in terms of longevity, unique URL, social media share opportunities and truly expressing your brand, product, service through information, links and images. The blog post can tell your story, share your news, and reveal your customers’ experiences. It’s a modern “word-of-mouth” way of advertising.

A blog post published on our Canadian Only Magazine blog site is currently valued at a minimum of $200 and depends on the product or service, and whether sample(s) have been provided to us so that we can genuinely share our personal experience.
