First a quick explanation of the Profile vs Directory Listing:
Your Profile is what identifies all users on this site and is directly linked to the ‘back end’ and the forums.
Your Directory Listing is the feature “Find-a-Locksmith”. This is a powerful database that is growing in GOOGLE, as the public looks for a reputable locksmith.
Please note the following:
- Directory Listings are reserved for businesses owned/operated by Active, Apprentice or Company members.
- Only a member who is principal of the business can add/edit their directory listing

This is where you can put your mugshot – (not even sure where this is used?).

Phone Numbers: Required
This has to be the same email address as you are using for your profile – as it is what is used to link you to your listing.

**Note Please** The general public are going to primarily use this feature to look for a “LOCAL” Locksmith. Unlike the scammers who try to look like they serve all of Ontario – we need to list areas that are actually within the area that we can get to within a reasonable timeframe. There are exceptions, so Please keep it to a maximum 1.5 hrs travel, or 150 km.
This is where you list any and all services that you offer.
