Site Policies

March 19, 2015

At AllOntario, we are working hard to provide:

  • Ontario residents with information about the options they have when an ordinary life problem arises by describing the full range of ways-of-help which are available at Canadian governmental institutions, non-profitable and business organizations;
  • Ontario small businesses with a platform for free online advertising and link building;
  • Ontarians with interesting reading.

Generally, our services are absolutely FREE. Everyone can benefit out of it. Obviously, we need to set the rules to make everybody happy and to keep the site operating properly and securely.

AllOntario accepts only business-related marketing materials (ads, articles, business listings, business events, expert listings, banners, videos etc.). AllOntario does not accept classified ads from individuals (for instance, “sofa for sale” or “basement apartment for rent”).

Please note that we moderate all materials before publishing them. Any marketing materials that do not comply with the AllOntario policy will be not accepted, or if they were accepted (for any reason) they will be removed from the site. Additionally, users that violate such policies will be blocked from using the AllOntario website in the future.

Including a URL in Your Post

If you would like to get more traffic to your web site, you can include a web site address by including a URL in the Ad/Business Listing/Business Event/Expert Listing. Such links will be clickable. Please do not include multiple different email addresses and website addresses (URLs) as they will be removed. Note that your post must be useful and serve other purposes than to direct more traffic to your web site.

The Homepage Top up Banner

The Homepage Top up Banners is a special section at the very top of the AllOntario homepage where ads are prominently displayed for greatest visibility.

You have the option of purchasing a Top up Banner for one week.

At most 10 Top up Banners will be shown in the Top up Banners section. Note that if more than 10 Top up Banners are purchased, only a random ten will be shown. The ads are randomly picked and will change each time the page is loaded. This rotation system is setup to ensure that all Top up Banners is exposed to as many AllOntario users as possible.

The cost for a Top up Banner depends on the demand for that option. The prices are set so that the feature remains a premium option for those that decide to purchase them. For example, if the price for Top up Banners were to be set too low then there would be too many Top up Banners and those that purchase the option will not get as much visibility. Generally, the prices are set on weekly basis and may change at any time. Please check the “Advertise” page of our website.

The Homepage Categorized Article from the AllOntario Members

Only our Members are entitled to post a Categorized Article on the AllOntario website homepage. If you are a member of AllOntario Club paying $20/month the membership fees you are entitled to post once a month one article (with up to 10 images) of your choice into a category of your choice.

There is no certain number of days during a month for which your article will be displayed on the homepage. It depends on how many Members want to advertise in that particular category: it might be one day or entire month.

Just remember that as a Member you have great discounts on any other type of advertisement.

Billing Day

The membership payments are due on the first day of the month. There is a special situation for the initial payment: if you made your payment any other day of the month but first, we will charge you $5 regardless of the payment was made 2 days or 27 days prior the first day of the next month. So, if you pay your very first membership fee on the second day of the current month you have to pay $5. It is the initial payment adjustment.

Payment Methods

Online payments can be made via PayPal. If you prefer to send us a cheque, please ensure that the cheque is issued by a Canadian bank and that you have a Canadian billing address.
