Canada to a large extent has become an "instant gratification" society, much to the detriment of our eating habits. Fast food such as greasy hamburgers and fries are the norm. So is frozen packaged foods that we pop into a microwave for a quick and easy meal. The downside to this is that many of us no longer eat healthy. The repercussions are enormous: our immune systems are weakened, leaving us susceptible to colds and the flu. The chances of contracting some health ailment are also vastly increased, as is a premature death.

If you do then you should know as of December 1, 2011, Immigration Canada is now offering parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens (permanent residents) the option of getting a Canadian "super visa". Unlike traditional visas this Canadian super visa is: valid for 2 years; renewable up to a total of 10 years; and allows for multiple entries into Canada. Within this two year period the applicant does not have to apply for a new visa every time they enter Canada!

very month or so, the main stream media picks up on a story about a Canadian traveling without proper coverage. Many of these unfortunate situations arise from a misunderstanding on the part of the client. Clients find out too late that their pre-existing condition is not covered by the policy they purchased. This is devastating since the client took the time and had the foresight to purchase coverage for their trip. This prudent move can be compromised quickly if pre-existing conditions apply.

It is widely known and well proven that employees who feel like their employer cares about their future and retirement are happier and more productive members of the workforce. Probably the most direct and profound measure of this is the retirement plan. Pensions and Group RRSP’s have and continue to be the cornerstone of industry for attracting and retaining a quality workforce. Still only 38% of working Canadians are members of a group retirement savings plan because small business think it is too complicated or expensive to be involved in a Pension or Group Savings plan.
