Walk Safe This Winter

Although we don’t have any control over the weather, we can use common-sense to prepare and stay safe. Here are five strategies everyone can use to stay safe when walking this winter.


  1. Walk slowly and deliberately and wear boots or other slip-resistant footwear.
  2. Keep walkways clear by shoveling snow or scrapping ice.
  3. Use extra caution when getting in and out of vehicles.
  4. Watch for slippery floors when entering buildings.
  5. Keep hands empty so your arms are free to move for stabilization. Try using a backpack when possible.


Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance day takes place on November 11 every year and marks the signing of the agreement to end World War One. This Sunday marks 100 years since the signing of this agreement.  Remembrance Day is about showing our respect and gratitude to those who have sacrificed for our country. In Canada poppies are worn to remember because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended.
