Trusted Saskatoon Celebrates Our 10th Anniversary In Style With a MEGA Giveaway! 


" Time definitely flies when you are having fun. On June 1st 2021, it will 10 years since I took the leap of faith and launched TrustedSaskatoon.com to the world! Over the last decade our service has helped 10'000's of local consumers, just like you, find trustworthy local businesses in and around Saskatoon. Over that time, we have promoted and supported 100's of wonderful family, small and locally owned business operated with integrity. I call them our Trusted Saskatoon Partners because they are so much more to our team than 'just clients.' Many of the Partners have been with me for the full 10 years,  and I am eternally grateful to everyone who has been part of this amazing journey! " - Sara Wheelwright 

Trusted as a company has grown from a 1 person business, from the kitchen table of our founder Sara Wheelwright. Now 'Trusted' as a company has lovely offices in downtown Saskatoon and we employ twelve local people. We expanded out of Saskatoon and have a Trusted directory franchise in Regina and a full-service marketing agency, Trusted Marketing Services, that offers everything from social media to animated videos and website development.  

Over the last 10 years, we have been fortunate enough to win multiple awards for entrepreneurship, marketing, and community support. This includes two prestigious Saskatchewan Chamber ABEX Awards, a SABEX Award for Marketing,  and, in addition, Sara has been the recipient of several entrepreneurship awards both locally and internationally. Trusted has donated $10,000's to local non-profits and folks in need, and our local team members have collectively volunteered 1000's of hours in the community. We have also given away $10,000's in prizes to 100's of lucky winners over the years.  We love what we do, and we appreciate every fan, every website visitor,  every Trusted Saskatoon Partner, and every Trusted team member, both past and present!

Trusted Saskatoon New Category Announced - Trusted Saskatoon Non-Profits

The Trusted Saskatoon team ran a contest on the Trusted Saskatoon Facebook page at the end of 2018 to find a new category for the Trusted Saskatoon directory. We received 100's of nominations, from children's activities to fencing, however, there was a clear winner, with over 200 nominations, we are pleased to announce the new category will be Trusted Saskatoon NON-PROFITS! 

  



Trusted Saskatoon Non-Profits.

As a small business in Saskatchewan, Trusted has prioritized community support as part of what we do from day 1. In 2017 we were recognized for our efforts as the recipient of the Saskatchewan Chamber Of Commerce ABEX Award for community support, so we were thrilled that this was the category that people in Saskatoon most wanted to see on our directory.   


There is no ME in Community…Just WE.


So What's The Plan for Trusted Saskatoon Non-Profits Category? 

We are pleased to announce that we will be GIFTING listings and annual Trusted partnerships in the new category to 4 Saskatoon Non- Profits. Each Year in January we will renew the category and we will rely on the public and the existing Trusted Saskatoon partners to help us find new Saskatoon and area non-profits to promote. Over the course of the year, we will volunteer our time and resources to help spread awareness of the 4 Trusted Saskatoon Non- profits organization activities, events and goals! 

This is an in-kind donation worth $4000 per non-profit, and being a Trusted Saskatoon partner means they will receive promotion in so many areas including:  

 1. 2 weeks of free radio ads. 
 2. Video interview and promotion of video.
 3. Regular Trusted partner promotion on our social media channels - including our Feature Partner Of the Week posts. 
 4. Free Marketing Training sessions.
 5. Networking  Opportunities. 


The 4 Trusted Saskatoon Non -Profits for 2019-2020:


1. Mending Little Hearts Fund of Saskatchewan 

This is a non- profit close to our heart, literally! 
Anna Maton, a Trusted Saskatoon Consultant is heavily involved in supporting this wonderful Saskatoon-based organization. Anna's youngest son William was born with a heart defect and went through open heart surgery a few years ago. We will share more about this Saskatoon Non-Profit once their listing has been added to the category.

2. TLC@Home  

This is a non-profit founded and run by a Trusted Saskatoon Partner - Hairstyles Inn.
First started in 2006 by Shelley James of The Hairstyle Inn, TLC@Home started off small distributing shoeboxes of gifts to one Saskatoon community school ( Princess Alexandra). Now 12 years later shoeboxes filled with holiday cheer are distributed to more than 800 students at Saskatoon schools which have included; Princess Alexandra Community School, St. Michael Community School, King George Community School and Pleasant Hill Community School.  We will share more about this Saskatoon Non-Profit once their listing has been added to the category.

3 & 4 ?????? - TO BE DECIDED...BY YOU! 

We are relying on our FANTASTIC Facebook fans to help us fill these 2 spots. A nomination process will begin Monday 7th Jan and run until Jan 31st. At that time votes will be counted and the top 2 most nominated non- profits will be recipients of the 2 remaining annual 2019-2020 Trusted Saskatoon Non- Profits gifted listings.
