CAPP Update 2013
“Clinic Assistance to Promote and Protect”
The CAPP program office continues to receive and process business registration forms. We have registered over 350 businesses to date and we continue to receive forms on a weekly basis.
At the beginning of December 2011, through the Standard, information and CAPP decals were distributed to over 5000 homes and businesses throughout Elliot Lake. In November, 2012 we distributed over 3500 informational attachments through the North Shore Daily.
As information about the program “gets out”, more and more residents and businesses are eager to “PARTICIPATE IN CAPP”!
Over the past couple of years the program has grown in both numbers and effectiveness as participation increases. Consumers are calling to verify the integrity of companies they are considering for service and businesses are registering at an increasing rate.
Since the program is “consumer driven” the impetus for registering and participating comes from consumers themselves as they investigate and question companies and individuals who are looking to do business for them.
In addition, the Clinic has successfully mediated through the CAPP program. This win/win approach has generated an outcome characterized by satisfied consumers and good company profiles.
For us at the Legal Clinic, the value of this program has already been demonstrated. Our ability to promote local businesses while assisting clients with information that empowers them is clearly achieving the goals of this program.
We believe with time, this model may very well serve as a blueprint for other communities.
