  • New immigrants to Canada face unexpected costs

    When Mehmet Gulec looks back on the days and weeks following his family’s arrival in Canada from Turkey in December 2013, he says he’s still amazed by everything the foursome overcame in fleeing their homeland. Gulec, who worked for 20 years as a production manager in the automotive industry in Turkey, says several organizations helped the family get established, including the Centre for Skills Development & Training, which offers a program called Enhanced Language Training to help immigrants who are beginning their careers in Canada. According to a new study by BMO Wealth Management, immigrants arrive here with an average of $47,000 in savings to help them get settled, while 19 per cent come with no savings at all.

One year before the World Cup, Sid will skate with some of Canada’s best and brightest in a tournament the NHL is trying to usurp with its own international ventures.

  • Why the US won't have OPEC to kick around in 2016

    As candidates for the 2016 U.S. general election gear up for a White House run, one villain of recent campaign cycles will be conspicuously absent: the cartel known as OPEC. With the U.S. oil boom helping the world's largest economy churn out more than 9 million barrels per day (bpd), its highest in about three decades and up 80 percent since 2008, energy prices appear to be sidelined as political theater.

WWMT-TV reports that Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic two years back. Rose's parents told WWMT that a letter from the school notified them that Rose had been dismissed because she could not meet academic or attendance standards.

  • U.S. border officers could face Canadian justice for serious crimes under pact

    A U.S. border officer who commits an on-duty crime in Canada would generally face justice in an American court under a new binational agreement. The arrangement will expand the American customs presence on Canadian soil and is expected to see Canada establish similar operations in the United States. In the rail mode, for example, this could mean preclearing passengers and their luggage in Canada before travellers leave the train station, thereby avoiding a stop at the Canada-U.S. border, the federal government says.

  • TFSA, RRSP and RRIF rule changes miss the mark

    Now if it would just address the real flaws in Canada’s retirement system. Last week’s federal budget showered goodies on the grey-haired set, ranging from more time for seniors to tap their registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) to vastly expanded limits on contributions to tax-free savings accounts (TFSAs). Neither move addresses what is arguably the most important goal of the retirement system – ensuring all Canadians over 65 enjoy a decent standard of living. Canada has been a world leader in this regard and our old-age poverty rate remains among the 10 lowest in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
