After three plus years online and spending a lot of money to buy our domain name, design and development we are facing pressure from the Canadian government to make drastic changes to our website which will enevitable completely devalue our company and likely force us to close.
For reference please visit this cached
link of our website. Even this cached copy contains aspects we were asked to change!
We have already made substantial changes as per their request and our business is already suffering because of this. It also seems like the pressure is not stopping and they are purposefully trying to put us out of business.
Do we have any means to defend ourselves? I mean we have been online for over three years now and have not heard a word from the government until now.
Approximately 1.5 years ago the government launched a website
which we believe is the primary reason we are receiving pressure now. Yet we have been online for at least three years.
Our terms have always stated we are not associated with the government. We provide professional immigration services, and a lot more to make sure we identify ourselves properly.
We are not cybersquatting we have built up our own professional immigration business.
List of Changes
These are the list of recent changes requested which will complete devalue everything we have worked for over the past three years. We have already took a big hit in major search engines due to changes already completed.
change color of background
remove phrase "Online Application Center" (we custom built an online application center)
remove all references to SINP, and Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (yet these are exactly the services we provide)
change the Title (again we provide SINP services)
change description to ensure that is clear that this is not affilated with the government (this is already done and we have been very clear we are not affilated with the government since day one.)
change Why SINP?
change Submit your application!
change Get SINP on your side
remove sinp for all url endings (ex: sinp.com/about-sinp/)
We have already removed almost all reference to SINP in our current website and now none of our services match our website. We have helped over 300 people with applications!
We have already responded to one round of changes and yet they keep demaind more changes. This recent request will likely be the end our business and professional services.
Looking for any advise or help!
