“Veterans feel as though they are the ones to be counted upon, and not the ones to count on others. Whether we realize it or not, the life of a former serving member is vastly different from that of a civilian. Focus is never on the individual. Veterans, especially those who have experienced mental health issues as a result of their service, need a hand in understanding that it’s okay to focus on themselves. We’re going to bring veterans in from the shelters, we’re going to bring them in off the streets, and we’re going to wrap them with the supports that they need in order to be successful people once again.” Suzanne Le, executive director of Multifaith Housing Initiative. Their latest development, Veterans’ House, will have 40-units of affordable housing for veterans in Ottawa.
« Les anciens combattants pensent qu’il est normal que l’on compte sur eux, et pas normal qu’eux aient à compter sur les autres. On ne se rend pas toujours compte que la vie d’un ancien membre actif des Forces armées est très différente de celle d’un civil. L’accent n’est jamais mis sur l’individu. Les anciens combattants, en particulier ceux qui ont connu des problèmes de santé mentale à la suite de leur service, ont besoin d’aide pour comprendre qu’il est acceptable de penser d’abord à eux. Nous irons chercher les anciens combattants dans les maisons d’hébergement, nous allons les sortir de la rue et leur offrir le soutien dont ils ont besoin pour vivre de nouveaux succès. » – Suzanne Le, directrice générale de la Multifaith Housing Initiative, dont le plus récent ensemble, la Veterans’ House, comptera 40 unités abordables pour les anciens combattants d’Ottawa.

Took me 12 years to learn everything I know today about real estate.
I few days ago, I was sharing this experience and these tricks with an older couple preparing to put their house up for sale early 2020. They now feel way more relaxed and informed. All their questions were answered.
I delivered value.
Let me know if I can help you do the same. You can reach out to me 7 days a week!
In the mean time here are some winter home safety tips for you today.❄️
Snow and ice form hazards around your house. Avoid injury by taking precautions after storms arrive:
Protect your trees. Snowfall and windy weather may break tree limbs, causing damage to your home and possibly endangering people and pets. Use a broom to brush away snow after it falls. Don't shake trees; weak or frozen areas might break.
Be sure to trim back branches close to the house.
Clear paths. Keep walkways and drives slip-resistant by shoveling (or snow blowing) regularly. Use ice melt that is safe for plants and pets to provide traction, including the steps to your home.
If you'll be out of town, arrange for someone to do this for you. Look after neighbours and yourself.
Watch the roof. Clear icicles that might fall on anyone entering or exiting your home. Look out for potential rooftop "ice dams" holding snow and water, causing damage.
Remove ice near eavestroughs and be careful not to harm shingles or drains. Better yet, hire an expert to do it.
Snowy scenes can be beautiful, but they're easier to enjoy when everyone's safe and sound.

@backcountry_wok is a local Ottawa startup changing the game in the food industry! Their dehydrated food just needs some boiling water and voila, a tasty meal to go, ready in 20 minutes. All of this and ZERO waste because their packaging is 100% compostable.
So naturally we decided to put it to the test in our Worm Studio. Melanie, the founder, says the packaging made of paper and corn takes a year to break down in their lab tests. Let's see how long our red wrigglers take to go through it.
On another note, can we see more compostable packaging please? If small startups with slim margins like Backcountry Wok can do it, what's stopping the big players? Why is everything in plastic that will pollute our planet for countless generations to come!
The Elves are back this weekend and every weekend until the end of December! 🎄
