1. What is NoticeConnect?
NoticeConnect allows you to post Notices to Creditors and Knowledge of Will Notices online.
2. Why should I use NoticeConnect rather than run a newspaper advertisement?
The convention of advertising in print newspapers is decreasingly effective at reaching creditors. Print news readership is declining and subscription rates are down across Canada. Several major newspapers have reduced printing or discontinued print editions altogether. Creditors are simply less and less likely to see relevant notices in a local newspaper. Additionally, changes in telecommunications technology have made it easy for individuals to conduct business outside of their hometowns and cities, which makes it even more likely that there are outstanding creditors who will never see an ad placed in the local paper.
Publishing notices to creditors online with NoticeConnect is the modern way to advertise for creditors of estates and most importantly, it is court-approved. NoticeConnect is search-engine optimized (SEO), which means that notices posted there are easily found through Google by any creditor searching for a debtor, even if they have never heard of NoticeConnect. Moreover, every notice posted on the website is automatically published on Facebook and Twitter to maximize its exposure. For more information click here.
