  • 2020 VIRTUAL ALS WALK
    Posted

    As many of you know our partner Andy Foreman passed away in March 2013 from ALS. ALS is a terminal disease that takes away people’s ability to walk, talk and eventually breath on their own.

    Staff member Mat Hodge has registered to take part in the annual “Walk to End ALS’  which this year takes place on June 21, 2020.. As a result of COVID-19, the ‘walk’ this year will be virtual. However, Mat will still perform the actual 5km walk as normal using the typical route, only this year he will do it without the crowds, maintaining as much distance from society as possible.

    If you would like to make a donation to this worthwhile cause the details can be found in this link: Personal Fundraising Page: https://secure.alsevents.ca/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?registrationID=4695733&langPref=en-CA&fbclid=IwAR0OoQgSHcGCzdUV4QH9selHjsT9xNRRorh2WvDEhBWIw3Rx_9hGqFve_sA#&panel1-1

  • TAX… some quick points to consider..
    Posted
    • The amount of income an individual can earn without paying tax (basic personal amount) will begin increasing in 2020. In the first year, it will rise to $13,229 (from $12,069 in 2019), and will reach $15,000 in 2023. The benefit will begin to be phased out when an individual has earnings of approximately $150,000.

    • TFSAs – As of 2017, the average number of contributions per individual was 49, the average fair market value of each account was $19,633, and the average unused space was $30,947.
