Volunteering for a Better Tomorrow

Volunteering for a Better Tomorrow

Taking care of places and stewarding lands requires spending time in nature. Many Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) properties are supported and maintained with the help of Conservation Volunteers (CVs) in communities from coast to coast, who donate their time to help conserve and care for land so that others may enjoy it.

Local Scouts Challenge The Community To Become A Kinder, Friendlier Place

– What Will Your Good Turn Be? –

Local Scouting youth are challenging the community to make an extra effort to be kinder to one another by performing a Good Turn for a neighbour, family, friend or the community during Scouts Canada’s 6th annual Good Turn Week from April 25 – May 3, 2015.

How to combat end-of-summer blues

August 29, 2014

Which side of the summer fence did you fall on this year? Did time slip by so fast that the deck never got painted, the garage never got cleaned out, or that camping trip never happened? Or was your summer so full of family BBQs and projects and weekends at a cottage that you hate to see the school supplies appearing in the stores?

Tune out, turn off, drop it. Disconnect and enjoy your holidays!

Tune out, turn off, drop it. Disconnect and enjoy your holidays!

August 18, 2014

Holidays and vacations away, even “staycations”, are great opportunities to unwind, let go of work related stress, and reconnect with family and friends.

Nutrition tips for the healthiest summer ever

Nutrition tips for the healthiest summer ever

Summer is a fun season for getting outside in some much-needed warmth. It’s also the season when it can be easiest to overlook important things like eating well and staying hydrated.

Summer’s finally here! And after a long, harsh winter, everyone is enjoying backyard BBQs, day trips to the beach, and weekend getaways to the cottage. The foods that often accompany these activities—hamburgers, cotton candy, potato chips and hot dogs—are hard to ignore, but do little to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs.

By Alfred Hauk, naturopathic doctor

Between March and the first frost, Ontario has three seasons replete with outdoor environmental allergens, as well as year-round indoor environmental allergens, such as mites, dust and pet dander.
