Great News! Josh’s First Ride

Hey everybody, we just heard some Great News and we want to share it with you!

This is Josh – and this is Josh’s first time riding on a horse.  This was really exciting for Josh and for everyone around him.  Special thanks to the instructor, who was great keeping the horse very calm.  And a huge thanks to Josh’s team for supporting him with his first ride!

Way to go Josh – this looks like a blast!  We’re looking forward to seeing a lot more pictures as you keep on riding.

Like to ride horses too?  Leave us a comment and tell us where you go to ride!

SPOTLIGHT: Sun Safety!

Hey everybody, the weather’s getting hot.

So, in this SPOTLIGHT, we are focusing on Sun Safety!

Sun Safety is all about getting outside and staying busy in nice weather, but also making sure that we take care of our health and avoid the risks of being in the sun.  There are some really great tips on sun safety here (at the Government of Canada website).

And, to keep things fun, the Minions team up Olympic Gold Medallist Stephanie Rice in this fun video with sun safety tips.  Check it out!

SPOTLIGHT: CRA weighs in on Caregiver earnings!

Hey everyone, some interesting information came our way and we are sharing it with you in today’s SPOTLIGHT!

We have posted to our Caregiver Support and Networking page a letter from the CRA to CLBC from March of this year.  The letter spends some time considering whether or not caregiver income is taxable.

You can find the Letter – Canada Revenue Agency to CLBC (March 28, 2018)  here.

As always, we encourage each caregiver to consult their tax professional when filing their income taxes.
