EDITORS’ NOTES

a

new year, a new place?

Here we are, already into the third month of 2013. Perhaps some of your New Year’s resolutions may have already been forgotten, but if finding a new place is still top-of-mind, we hope you’ll find this magazine helpful. As you go about your search and visit potential locations, be sure to get a feel for each company and the staff. You should be comfortable and courteous asking questions and in turn you should expect to be treated with consideration and respect. Think twice about any property management company that doesn’t willingly provide any information you respectfully request. Putting the customer first and offering the best quality rental space for your money is a property management company’s ultimate goal. Once you find the perfect space, don’t hesitate in going for it and making it your own. Hopefully it is one of the easier resolutions you may have on your list this year. Let us know how your search for a new home goes. We’d love to hear from you.

d

on’t be taken by surprise when you move into your new apartment! Do your research first and make sure your needs are being met at your new home. There are plenty of little things you should check out before you sign your lease. Don’t just assume that parking or utilities are included – ask. Don’t just guess that there’s a bus somewhere close by – check. And don’t just assume that you’ve lucked into a great property management company – do your homework. Find out if they’ve got any awards or certifications too. Other unfortunate surprises include furniture that won’t fit. While an apartment may seem spacious, you should take actual measurements to ensure. Often the configuration of a space can pose a challenge to placing furniture because of windows, doors, the room shape or the location of the cable outlet. You don’t want to find out on moving day that your couch can’t come with you or that you need to downsize from a king mattress to a double. If you’re not familiar with the neighbourhood, take a walk or a drive. See what’s in the community and where the amenities that you really need are located. Not good to be more than a short walk to the bus if you rely on public transit, and you might want to see where your child’s school is, how far the park is or how close the grocery is, so that there are no surprises! With Renters Guide in hand you’ll find that perfect place. Our magazine and website, homeTRADER.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments as well as informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Morguard Meadowvale Gardens a renter’s dream-come-true

M

eadowvale Gardens is ideally located in Mississauga – far enough away from the busy downtown area for peace and quiet, yet close enough to enjoy such places as Square One, Erin Mills Town Centre, and many more! The one-of-a-kind neighborhood offers unique living, dining and the entertainment venue Meadowvale Theatre. The vibrant community will be welcomed by the whole family.

Residents can take advantage of the tennis court, squash court, saunas and full gym right at home, and summer fun continues in the outdoor pool. The lounge, furnished with a fireplace and bar, is a great place to spend time or enjoy meeting up with friends and neighbours. Residents can take advantage of the nearby Lake Aquitaine Community Centre for a stroll or simply reading a book on a sunny day. The recreational options are extensive as residents can also enjoy shooting hoops on the basketball courts, go for a swim in the indoor heated Olympic-size pool with diving boards. And in the summer, families just adore the kiddie waterpark. There’s so much to do and enjoy, where will you start? The best place to start is from home – 2869 Battleford Road – Meadowvale Gardens, managed by Morguard. The diverse community is comprised of wonderful families that enjoy calling Meadowvale Gardens home – long-term. With two elementary schools and two highschools within a five-minutes walk, even the children will enjoy the convenience of the location. For those that work and play around the Greater Toronto Area, GO Transit (buses and trains) are within five minutes of the property. Even commuters appreciate the ease of travel options. Highways 401, 403, and 407 are moments away, making it easy to get anywhere across the GTA. Within Mississauga it’s not easy to find a more convenient community than this one! But coming home is the best part of this impressive Mississauga community. Meadowvale Gardens is a lovely low-rise with walk-up Garden Homes that are a truly rare find. Spacious one-,

10G

two- and three-bedroom suites are the perfect home for all seasons. Suites are air-conditioned and each features a balcony or patio. It’s ideal for enjoying the warm weather and taking in the lovely surroundings. Suites also feature a wood-burning fireplace – the perfect way to cosy up during cold weather! Modern kitchens, including a stove, fridge and dishwasher, and offer ample storage space. Laundry rooms are conveniently located in each building. The on-site staff and management are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring that while you have day-today items on your mind, your home is not one of them. Their attention to customer service and quality is top priority, and it creates a comfortable and well-maintained environment that residents appreciate.

Meadowvale:

Suburban serenity in Northwestern Mississauga by IVAN SANDOVAL

M

eadowvale West – the name itself has a tranquil essence to it. Meadowvale evokes a sense of nature, a simpler time. That’s because Meadowvale West is considered to be one of those bird-chirping suburbias. It’s a great little Mississauga neighbourhood that is just old enough for mature trees to line the streets and new enough so that there are open spaces and newer apartment buildings, schools, shopping plazas and transportation routes. 18G

THE AREA Meadowvale West is located in the northwestern part of Mississauga, south of Brampton and west of Milton. It’s bordered to the north by Argentia, to the south by Britannia Road West, to the west by Winston Churchill Boulevard and to the east by Erin Mills Parkway. Montevideo and Glen Erin are two of the areas quieter streets that cut right through the heart of Meadowvale West and provide an glimpse of how little traffic and equally distanced trees can make for a very relaxed atmosphere. GETTING AROUND Meadowvale West is perfectly located on the GO Train transit line with three separate GO stations – Meadowvale, Meadowvale Town Centre and Winston Churchill and Derry. All provide service to Union Station in Toronto and Finch Station in North York, while Meadowvale Station has additional service to York University. Meadowvale West is a crossroads for many transportation routes. Highway 401 and Highway 407 are located north of this community. Just west of Winston Churchill, Highway 407 begins its southward route, which means that you can travel east, west or south to the QEW, all by highway. Mississauga Transit services Meadowvale West very well with numerous routes running through Meadowvale Town Centre. Some of the buses connect to both Square One and Erin Mills Town Centre.


SHOPPING There are two distinct areas in Meadowvale West that offer a multitude of shopping options. Meadowvale Town Centre is a mid-sized indoor mall that includes a some great shopping options. Meadowvale Business Park, just east of Erin Mills is home to big box plazas featuring outlet shops and popular restaurants. Various other plazas are located within Meadowvale West to round out a great array of businesses and services. LEISURE Meadowvale West has small parks such as Hunter’s Green and Settler’s but the gem of Meadowvale West is Lake Aquitaine in the heart of this neighbourhood. This gorgeous and lush pond includes walking and biking trails as well as a fishing area. Meadowvale Community Centre, right beside Lake Aquitaine includes a fitness centre and an indoor pool. Meadowvale Library is located in the Meadowvale Town Centre while Meadowvale Four Rinks is in the area’s eastern end. For arts and theatre, local community groups host numerous events a year at Meadowvale Theatre. An intimate

experience is felt here as no seat in this theatre is more than 50 feet away from the stage. The area is a real find, with an incredible variety of amenities and service, making it a very convenient and comfortable place to life. It’s an ideal find for families, offering open space, a relaxed pace and a great variety of family-friendly amenities, from parks and schools to community centres. Commuters love it for the ease of access to the city, while students can still easily get to campus without any hassle, be it direct transit to York University or Erindale Campus of the University of Toronto. It’s a suburban option that puts the city at easy access and the airport a quick jaunt away. It also makes it easy to get out of the city and is an access point for touring southwestern Ontario with many points of interest in close proximity. RENTING Most rental buildings and townhouses that are in this area are mid-rise buildings that seem to fit within the context of the area – not too big, not too small and very, very quiet.

Top 10 Renter Issues By Jane He rman

H

armonious living is all about treating others with respect and consideration. Start by making a concerted effort to avoid these ‘Top 10 Renter Issues.’ When you act with sensitivity to your neighbours, it’s amazing how others will respond.

62G

1. Keep the noise down. Apartment walls are notoriously thin, and people have different sleeping schedules. Remember that many people work at night and might be sleeping when you are heading off to work! Take off those clicking high heels at the door and don a pair of slippers at home. Likewise, please refrain from vacuuming, power tools or hanging pictures at 10pm. Avoid exceedingly loud noise at all times, especially


arguing, playing music or watching the television at high volume. (Consider getting a pair of headphones for your home entertainment.) If you’re having a large crowd over, advise your neighbours. 2. The elevator is for everyone. Upon entering the elevator, if you see another resident running down the hall, (or an elderly resident who may not be able to get there that fast) do the right thing and hold it for them. Likewise, don’t hold the elevator unnecessarily, like while you’re waiting for your spouse/roommate to put their coat on, lock the door, and walk all the way down the hall. You know how annoying it is to wait endlessly for the elevator – especially when you’re in a hurry. And if you have children, never let them play in the elevators (pushing all the buttons and then running out at their floor is not a game). 3. No Smoking. This should be obvious. If smoking is not allowed in your building or on the floor, don’t do it. 4. Consider the environment when cooking. This is one issue that can, unfortunately, be very invasive. What smells delicious and appetizing to some can be, absolutely unappealing and overpowering to others. When cooking – especially when it’s something aromatic – please open your window so that it doesn’t smell up the entire floor. This is especially important when you’ve burned something. There is nothing worse than emerging from the elevator and finding the hall filled with offensive smells. 5. Respect and maintain common areas as if they were an extension of your own home. They are, in fact, an extension of your own home. Encountering a pile of garbage in the trash room is particularly offensive. Always put yours down the chute. And remember to tidy up after yourself in the laundry room, whether it’s used dryer sheets, spills of detergent near the washer or just your used coffee cup or empty water bottle. After using the barbecue, pool area or party room, take out all trash and leave as you found it. 6. Ensure that your pet is a good neighbour too. To prevent accidents, walk your pet regularly, and stoop’n’scoop. Not is it only the right thing to do, it’s your

obligation. Also, make sure your pet isn’t disruptive to neighbours by howling all day or barking all night. 7. Be a model citizen in the parking lot. Keep the music down. Drive slowly and carefully, anticipating seniors and children. Don’t stop or leave your car idling where it will be in the way of others. Stick to your own parking space and make sure guests only park in designated Visitor Parking spots. Even if you know your neighbour works during the day, stay out of their assigned spot. They may have to come home for a quick break and this is one major pet peeve that can drive a wedge between people. 8. Keep an eye on the time and on your laundry regularly. Don’t leave your stuff sitting in the washer or dryer after it has finished. It annoys other people who are waiting to use the machine. Invest in a drying rack and dry delicate items inside, not on your balcony. 9. Clothing is not optional! Remember to dress appropriately when taking out trash, recycling, picking up mail, doing laundry or getting something from your car. 10. Be aware of your neighbours but also respect their right to their privacy. Be cognizant of and promptly report any crimes or suspicious persons in the building. This is not just a matter of etiquette, but of communal safety. At the same time, be aware of your neighbours, but also respect their right to their privacy. This means not making their business – like when they leave and enter the building or where they are going – your business. Creating the kind of community you want to live in means treating your neighbours with the simple respect and courtesy you wish to have reciprocated. As they say, “Begin and the rest is easy.”

How Credit Cards CalCulate interest B y Gai l Vaz -Ox lade

I

f you’re like me and you always pay the amount owing on your credit card by the payment due date, you never have to pay interest, so you may not much care what your interest rate is or how it’s calculated. But if you carry a balance, or if you ever take cash advances, read on.

90G


finances Interest on a credit card is charged differently depending on the type of transaction on the card. Maybe you made a new purchase. Maybe you’re carrying a balance from last month, which would be a “previous purchase.” Perhaps you took a cash advance. Or maybe in an attempt to get your interest costs down, you did a balance transfer. New purchases usually don’t attract any interest unless there’s a previous balance on the card or you end up paying after the due date. At that point, the interest clock clicks on back to the date of the purchase. No grace period! If you carry so much as a penny on the balance, then instead of getting a free ride from the date of purchase through to the date owed the following month, the interest clock clicks on the minute you do the transaction. The interest-free or “grace” period never applies to cash advances. Yup, the minute you pull that money off your card, the clock clicks on and you start paying interest, usually on your entire balance. Ditto balance transfers unless you have a special deal going. The interest you’ll pay is calculated in one of two ways: using the “average daily balance method”or using the “daily balance method”. While these calculations are different, they often yield the much the same results. If you don’t much care, skip the next two paragraphs. If you really want to know the difference, well, here ya go: Credit cards calculate the average daily balance by adding up the balance at the end of each day and then dividing the total by the number of days in the billing period. The answer is then multiplied by the daily interest rate (the annual interest rate divided by 12). They multiply the result by the number of days in the billing period (30 in June, 31 in July). The daily balance method calculates interest owed at the end of each day. They multiply the daily balance by the daily interest rate, adding up the daily interest charges to obtain the amount of interest charged for the month.

Everybody back? Credit card companies use one of two methods to decide whether the interest-free period applies to your new purchases: On some cards, the interest-free period applies to your new purchases if you pay your current month’s balance in full by the due date. This can be called “method 1” or “one cycle billing”. But some credit cards want to penalize you when you carry a balance even for one month. In an interest rate grab, “method 2” or the “two cycle” billing was born. With this method, the interest-free period applies to your new purchases only if you pay your current month’s balance in full, by the due date, and you did not carrying a balance from the previous month. I find it interesting that in all the chatter about cardholder rights and changes proposed by the Feds to protect consumers, two-cycle billing never saw the light of day. And where is the protection for people – students in particular – who are offered credit with no visible means of repayment? And don’t get me started on over-limit fees or any of the other rapacious fees credit card companies use to compensate for all the bad lending they did. Credit cards can also charge a different interest rate for things like introductory offers, cash advances or balance transfers. Since those rates are often calculated in a different ways than the rates charged for purchases, you need to be careful when you use your cards. Often, for example, if you do a balance transfer, you should not use that card for any additional purchases. Why? Well, while the balance transfer offer may seem like a gift, the new purchases interest rate can be through the roof. And since all your payments will go to the“balance transfer”pot first, your“new purchases” pot will continue to accumulate at that much higher interest rate. The recent Fed plans to try to protect consumers from the big bad credit card wolves does address this issue,

but nothing has been cast in stone yet. So sometime in the future consumer payments may have to be assigned to the balance with the higher rate, or they may be spread between the two or more pots based on the relative size of the balance, but who knows. While it may feel like torture to read your credit card agreement, if you don’t you’re walking blind into something that may bite you in the butt down the road. And whenever your credit card company sends out a notification that your terms and conditions have changed, pay attention. It was a lack of attention that allowed the Method 2 calculation or “two-cycle billing”, which was born in the U.S. where credit card companies regularly stick it to their customers, to take hold in Canada. If more people had had their heads up and rebelled, our lenders would never have kept this option. Now it has a strong foothold, it would take a tsunami of customer cancellations to have it reversed. That’s ground we’ve lost as consumers that we’ll never regain.

LOSS PREVENTION

Insurance is great, but prevention is better

T

hey say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Think of insurance as the cure (sort of) to a number of bad things that could happen to you or your family. Yes, if you have a fire or a theft, insurance will help you pick up the pieces. But most people who have lost their homes in a fire — even those with great insurance coverage — will tell you that they would prefer if it had never happened in the first place.

Insurance gives you financial peace of mind. If you have the right coverage, no theft, fire, accident or hurricane can leave you broke. However, there are certain things that insurance cannot fix. For example: If your wedding ring or a priceless family heirloom is stolen in a break-in, insurance may cover the actual market value of the item, but the sentimental value cannot be replaced. If you suffer a fire and all your family photos are destroyed, you will feel a tremendous loss, even though the photos have no monetary value. Insurers are in the business of compensating people when they suffer losses. Being so close to so many human tragedies,

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 14

insurers are passionately committed to loss prevention. They know that it is better to avoid suffering than to try to make up for it. If your home is uninhabitable for a period of time, you may need to move to a hotel or even a new, likely furnished, apartment. Some tenant’s policies will cover additional living expenses you incur during this time, such as meals (if you are in a hotel) and extra rent or room charges. Be sure to ask your insurance representative if you have this type of coverage, so that if disaster strikes you can focus on putting your life back together without worrying about the added costs. For more information talk to your insurance representative about your tenants’ insurance needs. The Insurance Bureau of Canada offers information for consumers to help make them aware of their insurance needs and assist them in understanding the types of insurance available. They are the national industry association representing Canada’s private home, car and business insurers. Its member companies represent 90 per cent of the property and casualty (P&C) insurance market in Canada. For more valuable information from the Insurance Bureau of Canada please visit www.ibc.ca.

now days and longer evenings don’t have to mean hibernating in front of the television all winter. The colder months are a perfect time to spend quality time together as a family. Try some of these activities to keep your kids active and entertained: Get your game on Encourage kids to burn off energy by playing video games that encourage exercise. Choose games that engage your whole body like Just Dance or Sports Champions for PlayStation. Or, if you have enough room, set up an indoor hopscotch court or play a traditional game of hide and seek. Fun with forts Going to the playground isn’t always a possibility during the winter, but on days when weather is so harsh that going to the park and

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 20

playing in the snow isn’t even an option, building a fort is definitely the next best thing. Help kids use blankets and couch cushions to build a castle, a cave, or whatever they can imagine. As a bonus activity, have them draw pictures of how they imagine the fort, complete with creatures who would live there. Blast boredom with books Cuddling up with your kids to read books is a great way to spend quality time together. Don’t limit it to story books. Consider searching for words together in a word search book, or search for Waldo in a picture book. Or for something completely different, check out Wonderbook: Book of Spells for PlayStation. This book uses augmented reality to transport your family to a virtual classroom to learn spells from the world of Harry Potter. NC

10 top design tips for renters By Lucie Grys

Y

ou don’t need to blow the bank to make your rented apartment or house feel like home. With these 10 quick and affordable, landlordapproved design tips, you’ll be living la dolce vita in no time.

1

.CHOOSE A THEME When it comes to designing your space, it’s easier if you chose a theme as a starting point. If you love hiking in the outdoors, pick colours like greens, blues and earth tones that reflect the trees, sky and rocks. If you love to go dancing on a Saturday night, try vibrant reds, glittery metallics and sultry blacks. If you’ve got the travel bug, try hot pinks, aquamarines and saffron yellows. Or, if

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 34

you want your space to be a respite from your busy life, chose off whites, pale blues and natural colours to relax you. Once you’ve picked a theme, you’ll find it’s a lot easier to focus on creating your perfect space. Marta Nicholson of Moda Interior Design in Winnipeg, Manitoba notes, “we need to remember that in today’s time with busy schedules, the place that we call home needs to be a

stress-free environment that we find beautiful, calming and truly a retreat to rejuvenate for the next day. Visual balance is one of the most important key elements in design – balance of colour, balance and moderation in accessories, balance of textures. If this is successful in a space – whether large or small – then the outcome of the design produces comfort and pleasure.”

3/1/13 2:11:49 PM

START WITH A CLEAN SLATE If you ask your landlord’s permission and show them the colours ahead of time, most will allow you to paint your walls. Often, they will ask you to paint them back to a neutral tone before you leave, but that seems to be a small price to pay for living with the colours that you want. If painting the walls isn’t an option, visit a fabric store and frame your favourite prints and patterns to bring some life to your walls. “If a renter is planning to be in a lease for a long period of time, then it is important to love the place that you call home. Make your home beautiful. Hire an interior designer who will come in and assist you in making your space special,” says Nicholson. If you can’t paint, she advises clients to use, “a cushion or throw or a new bedspread in the bedroom to achieve colour. Also, nothing can beat fresh flowers in a space to add colour, texture and interest.”

THE PARTY IS IN THE KITCHEN Everyone knows that the real party always ends up in the kitchen. But if you’ve inherited ugly cupboards and a leaky faucet, you might just choose the keep the lights off. If you are a neat freak and don’t mind your plates and cups being exposed, unscrew your cabinet doors and go for the open shelving look. Prop your dishware so it looks like a magazine stylist did it, and hide your cupboard doors under your bed for when you decide to move and have to put them back up. Another quick fix that can update any dated kitchen is to splurge on a great looking faucet. For about $100, you can modernize your kitchen, and paired with some bold tea towels, a vase of fresh flowers and a bowl of apples, lemons or limes, you’ll create a real designer look for less.

4

WINDOW DRESSING Window treatments can be very expensive, but it’s easier than you think to create a great look, and can be done on a budget. If you’ve moved into a space where the blinds are older than you are, take them down and stash them in

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 35

your storage locker. A simple rod with some prefab curtain panels is a cheap fix to frame out your windows. Hit your local big box store for some bamboo blinds and add some texture while you shut out the morning light. Or, find a deal and buy metres and metres of a good-looking, neutral fabric and drape the material over a rod for a no-sew solution.

BATHROOM BLUES It’s amazing what a new shower curtain, a good scrubbing and a basket of fresh towels can do to bring the spa home to your own bathroom. No need to fret over ugly shower tiles, simple keep your shower curtain drawn over the bathtub and only you will know what ‘70s-inspired tiles lurk behind. Pick up an stylish mirror to hang over the sink and prop you bathroom with clear containers of cotton swabs, cotton balls and other lotions and potions. Depending on the effect you want to create, you can add some life to a bathroom by replacing a low wattage bulb with a higher one – or pick up a small lamp for the counter to create a romantic ambient mood.

bistro table with a few folding chairs and picking up some pre-planted flowers or ferns can create a lot of visual interest. Keep the theme and colours consistent with your interior and make the time to enjoy your outdoor oasis and dine al fresco. CREATE A HOME OFFICE If working on your laptop in front of the TV is taking its toll on your

back, pick a corner or a small closet and make a home office. Wireless printers can be stored in a wardrobe or behind a cupboard, install a few floating shelves for supplies in neat boxes and pick up a stool that can be easily tucked away. The trick is to keep the space clutter-free and well-organized.

STORE IT WISELY With space at a premium, being clever with storage ideas will help to

free up living space. Invest in an

SAVE OR SPLURGE? The key to creating your dream space is to know when to splash out the big bucks and when to hit the local garage sales. Nicholson says, “If an individual is renting a space for a short time, then I would suggest that they should invest in items that they can take with them. If a client purchases small items that they find beautiful to brighten up their space, then they will most likely find that same item beautiful for their second living arrangement. Items such as paintings and artwork, sculptural elements, vases, the list goes on. However one needs to avoid clutter, – clutter being to me one of the greatest eyesores.”

INCREASE YOUR LIVING SPACE When patio weather hits, and if you are lucky enough to have some outdoor space, use it wisely. Instead of your balcony being a storage space for your bike, treat the space like an outdoor room. Throwing down an outdoor rug to

as a coffee table and can also divide a living room from a dining nook. Pick up a wardrobe to hide away your TV, stereo, DVD and extra linens and towels. Use closet space wisely and pick up some stacking shelves for seasonal items like winter boots and bulky sweaters.

10

KEEP IT CLEAN Enjoy that new place feeling for as long as you can, take the

time to unpack all of your boxes and put your treasures away. Living out of cardboard boxes isn’t fun. Sweep up and TV and tables, recycle junk mail so it doesn’t pile up on kitchen counters and be proud of your home. Invite your friends and family over to share your space and even if you don’t own your home yet, live as if you do.

THE LANGUAGE OF

MOVING BY DAN HOPKINS

Dolly, LD, corrugated, internal move â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hearing the terms used to describe your move may give you panicked flashbacks of high school second language classes. Professional moving can be a very technical business. There are industryspecific terms to describe moving processes and products that most people have never heard before. No need to worry. Consider the following list your intro to the Moving Language course; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be saying pass the stretch-wrap before you know it!

SOME HELPFUL TERMS Appliance dolly: A special dolly with straps to help load and unload large items such as appliances and oversized furniture.

moving and storage. Corrugated boxes have multiple layers of cardboard called “fluting” that give strength and durability to the box’s structure.

Larger screen TV dolly: A special hard-cased enclosed box with wheels that can safely accommodate any largescreen television to allow it to be moved safely. If you have a large screen TV, be sure your mover has this specialized equipment to make sure it does not get damaged during your move.

Dish cells: Cardboard inserts that provide individual cubicles for your dishware within a cardboard box. Dish cells give extra support to breakable dishes and prevent the box from caving or allowing direct contact between pieces.

Binding estimate: A flat price based upon a given inventory meaning no matter how long the job takes, the flat price is always paid. This is typically restricted to situations when an on-site estimate is performed. Bill of lading: A contract between the mover and the customer that also acts as a receipt. Make sure you understand everything on the bill before you sign it. Fuel surcharge: When gasoline prices are in a period of flux, some movers will charge the customer an added fee in addition to the cost of the move to compensate for the higher cost of fuel. When getting a quote, be sure to ask your mover,“Will this be the final cost, or are there additional fees?” Corrugated: Describes a type of cardboard used to make boxes for

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 49

Internal move: A move in which the items stay in the same building. Internal moves are useful for preparing your home or office for painting, carpet cleaning, furniture rearrangement and holiday decorating. LD: Short for long distance move. Many provinces regulate the moving industry based on the distance the items are moving within the province. Although the move is still considered intraprovince, different rates may apply if the move is considered “Long Distance.”

move will cost based on his previous experience with similar jobs. These estimates are typically requested by the customer last minute, agreed to over the phone and are subject to change. Stretch-wrap: A thin plastic packing and moving material used to secure moving blankets covering your items during the moving process. Stretch-wrap is used to protect your furniture from precipitation, sweat and tearing. Shrink-wrap: A thicker plastic, which requires heat to adhere to furniture. Typical items do not require packaging this thick for moving. Like learning any new language, it’s important to ask questions. If there is a term you do not understand, ask the representative from your moving company to clarify. Confusion about some moving terms is not only frustrating, it can be costly.

Local move: A move in which all stages of moving take place near the moving company’s origin. Non-binding estimate: When an in-home estimate cannot be conducted, the customers give a description of items to be moved. The mover then gives the customer his best guess of what the

What to look for in an apartment BY JANE HERMAN

A

re you feeling a little overwhelmed by the challenge of trying to find an apartment? Even wading through all of the ads and listings in Renters Guide can be daunting, unless you understand how they are organized. But where do you start? The first criteria in your decision should be price: How much can you realistically afford to spend per month? Most financial planners recommend that your rent (not including extras such as parking, hydro, cable, etc.) should amount to less than 30 per cent of your monthly income. This may be hard to achieve, but thinking about how much you can spend on rent will also help you to set up a budget. Include all expenses you’ll be responsible for each month (food, utilities, telephone, transportation, laundry, parking, etc.) and other, annual or variable expenses, such as clothing, moving expenses, renter’s insurance, savings, recreation, entertainment, etc. The more you spend on rent, the less you’ll have available for other things. Next, determine what area you want to live in. How will you determine where to look? If you are new to the area, you may want to live near friends or relatives, within a certain commuting radius of work or school. If you have children, do you want to live in a particular school district? Are parks and play areas nearby? Is proximity to the transit or a major highway may be a priority Is the area convenient to shopping, library, recreation facilities, entertainment, restaurants, etc. What are the traffic patterns in the neighbourhood? How is the traffic at rush hour? How are the noise levels in the area at different times of the day, and would this be a factor in your decision? With these factors in mind, make a list of several different neighbourhoods in which you could look: Area 1: ________________________ Area 2: ________________________ Area 3: ________________________ Type of accommodation: Many apartments are in highrises. A highrise building is one that is six or more storeys, has elevators, security, laundry

TRN05_SectionA_64pg.indd 57

facilities, and, frequently, sports and/or recreation facilities and other amenities, as well as efficient electrical, heating and plumbing systems. A walk-up or low-rise would be less than five storeys high, may have no elevator and few conveniences. However, the rent would generally be less at this type of apartment than at a highrise building in the same area. Other kinds of apartments you could rent include: A basement apartment is a basement in a house that has been converted to an apartment. It may have a separate entrance. The apartment may have its own bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and heating system, or it may share those amenities with the rest of the home. A low rise apartment building may also have basement apartments. A duplex, triplex or fourplex is a group of two, three or four apartments together in the same building. Apartment Features Search through the Renters Guide listings to find those that match your criteria. They are organized by area. You should also use Renters Guide companion website, hometrader.ca. It is an excellent source of apartment listings, also organized by area. You can also find potential apartments by walking around or driving through the area you have chosen, or through word of mouth. If a friend or relative is happy living in a particular building, chances are you will be too. When you go to look at apartments, inspect them thoroughly before you sign the lease or give a first month’s rental deposit. Some landlords have a condition checklist on which to record details upon move in and move out. Be sure to inspect walls, floors, bathroom and kitchen faucets and fixtures, appliances, windows, doors, etc. Make sure you note such things as the condition of the property and the building. Note the size and location of the closets. You may want to take along a tape measure to see how your furniture might work in the space. If you go through the process carefully, chances are you’ll be more satisfied with your decision after you move in.

Rental Agreements L]ViNdjH]djaY@cdl 7Z[dgZndjH^\cVAZVhZ

hen you rent a home or apartment in Canada, the landlord will usually ask you to sign a written rental agreement. This legal contract is also often called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lease.â&#x20AC;?

Toronto Unfurnished

Under the laws of each province and territory, tenants and landlords have certain rights and responsibilities whether they have a written agreement or not. Nevertheless, a written lease agreement can help spell out all the terms you and your landlord want to have covered and agreed to. You may also wish to seek legal advice before accepting the terms. To help you know what to expect, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers the following list of terms that can be found in most rental agreements: t5IFOBNFTPGUIFMBOEMPSEBOE UFOBOU T  t5IFBEESFTTPGUIFIPNFPS BQBSUNFOUZPVBSFSFOUJOH t5IFNPOUIMZSFOUZPVBHSFFEUPQBZ  XJUIPSXJUIPVUVUJMJUJFT QBSLJOH  DBCMFUFMFWJTJPOPSPUIFSTFSWJDFT t5IFEBUFXIFOUIFSFOUJTEVF GPSFYBNQMF POUIFmSTUEBZPGFBDI NPOUI  t5IFBNPVOUBOEUFSNTPGBOZSFOU  TFDVSJUZPSEBNBHFEFQPTJUTZPV BHSFFEUPQBZ

Packing Tips and List I^ehidbV`ZndjgbdkZVa^iiaZZVh^Zg# PACKING TIPS

P P

Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbors, and stores.

P

Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, and scissors. Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.

P P P P P P P P P

Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.

P

Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.

P

Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks). Keep it in an easy-to-find place when you pack

Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, foam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.

Label each box with the name of the room in your new home where it should be placed. List the contents of the box on the side of it. Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes go in which room in your new home. Label boxes containing fragile items with large red lettering. Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat. Pack your TV, stereo, and computer in their original boxes whenever possible. Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less. Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes. (Hint-Don’t pack all your books into one box!)

GENERAL MOVING TIPS

P Disconnect and bundle cords on television and stereo components. Label each cord with masking tape and a description of where to connect it.

P Plan and measure where you furniture will be placed in your new home. It’s helpful to draw a layout of your new home and sketch in the major furniture pieces.

P To save time on moving day, move your boxes from the basement, upstairs, or attic to the main floor prior to the move date. Consider carrying items from the back yard to the front yard or garage ahead of time.

P Keep your phone connected through moving day to stay in touch with friends, family and the moving company.

President of Orkin Canada, Gary Muldoon goes incognito as Michael. Undercover Boss Canada Block Three airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on W Network. wnetwork.com

;</<1F D.;A@ A< A.98 ./<BA 6A but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. Pests. Vermin. Bugs. Infestations. There’s nothing pretty or glamourous about it. But what do you do when the mice are scurrying, the bees have taken over or you can’t sleep tight because the bedbugs are biting? Gary Muldoon, president of Orkin Canada can tell you. You call in the professionals. Being the president of the company, you might not think he’s been under too many decks or in too many homes battling on the front lines of pest control – but you’d be wrong. Gary rose to the occasion when The W Network’s hit series Undercover Boss Canada

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 80

approached him for the show. Gary found himself face-to-face with a mighty raccoon under a deck, and toe-to-toe with some nasty bugs. He also found a lot of earnest dedication on the part of his professional exterminators. It’s not just a service and a business, he came away with a greater understanding of how treatment of pests and infestations can dramatically affect people’s quality of life. Now that we’re in the winter months, Gary explains, mice are enemy number one. “Expanding city sprawl is disrupting mice homes,” he says. They’re only looking for somewhere to live. In fact, most creatures are looking for a nice warm place to live and the fall and winter are a busy season for new intruders.

B63@3/@3B6@33B67<5AG=C E/<BB=2=74G=CA33;713( Ä&#x2018;Ĺ?Ĺ?Ĺ?Ĺ?Ĺ?  Ä&#x2018;Ĺ? Ĺ?Ĺ?Ĺ?Ĺ? Ä&#x2018;Ĺ?

Ĺ? Ĺ?Ĺ? 

Gary Muldoon, president of Orkin Canada orkincanada.ca

There are three things you want to do if you see mice: Shut off any access points; remove any food source; call in a professional. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in birth control and mice can have several litters per year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; every three months â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and have a dozen in a litter,â&#x20AC;? says Gary. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do the math, you just want to stop it before it gets out of control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mouse urine is a scent that attracts other mice. Droppings can create health issues.â&#x20AC;? And another concern is safety and physical damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mice chew everything, even wires and power cords. Exterminators donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come armed with super-sonic mouse-fi nding machines. They know the hotspots to look for and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trained to â&#x20AC;&#x153;think like a mouse,â&#x20AC;? Gary explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How did I get in here? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best place to hide? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best place to live?â&#x20AC;? are all things the exterminators need to consider in locating nests. Orkin Canada doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use poison in homes, since it could harm pets and children. Instead the company uses what Gary describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;glorified windmills.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re live traps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a few days, problem solved.â&#x20AC;? Orkin Canada gets 64,000 calls every month. While a lot of them are regular service calls and commercial business, that staggering monthly number from just one of the major pest control companies illustrates just how pervasive pests can be. Bedbugs are another type of out-of-control infestation that needs fast and decisive professional intervention. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thought to be a scourge of apartment buildings, the fact is, it is also a problem in private homes, coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, airplanes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pretty much any public spaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bedbugs are hitchhikers, they travel with people, jump off and get on the next person.â&#x20AC;? In fact, a message on Twitter in 2010 nearly derailed the Toronto International Film Festival, one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest and flashiest screening parties, because there was a concern that one of the main theatres might have bedbugs. It

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 81

turned out not to have any foundation, but the bedbugs had made headlines and put people on high alert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bedbugs reproduce so quickly,â&#x20AC;? Gary explains. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get all of them. They can hide in the tiniest crevice. They can travel through electrical conduits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carbon dioxide attracts bedbugs, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re usually on the headboard of a bed. Rapid breathers, high body temperatures and certain blood types attract them.â&#x20AC;? They eat blood and some sleepers are more delicious than others. DDT used to be the solution for bedbugs, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off the roster now. Since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been banned, there are other methods, though preventative treatments are necessary to keep the problem at bay. Bedbugs emit a pheromone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a scent that dogs can pick up. Orkin Canada will go in with bedbug-hunting dogs and can detect with near certainty whether a problem exists quite quickly. In apartments, to contain the infestation, they like to treat above, below and beside the affected apartment so that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nowhere untreated that the bugs can escape. In most homes, a great amount of furnishings end up being thrown out â&#x20AC;&#x201C; consider the potential of picking up a bedbug infestation the next time you pick up a curbside treasure! Roaches are yet another issue. They reproduce really quickly and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nocturnal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see them during the day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad problem.â&#x20AC;? One of the things they love to eat, says Gary, is the glue in cardboard boxes. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring them home from the grocery store, he says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-toocommon a way to introduce a roach problem into your home. They like moisture and are often found under the kitchen sink. From bees and hornets to raccoons, rodents and vermin, there are a lot of animals that can live where you want them least, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always help â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a way to get rid of them if you do. And that raccoon that Gary wrangled with under the deck? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got the raccoon. I got him. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy.â&#x20AC;?

Investing strategies to live life

MORE RICHLY

W

ith RRSP season underway, many Canadians are reevaluating their investments and wondering what options work best for them.

While more than half of Canadians have a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), many are unsure of what investments to hold in it or what is appropriate for their particular life stage. For example, people in their 20s can afford to have a more aggressive investment approach, while those closing in on retirement may want to be more conservative to protect their nest egg. “Finding the money for your RRSP is the first step to long-term savings, but knowing what to invest in, when to invest, and how to invest are just as critical,” explains Robert Armstrong, vice president of managed solutions and registered plans strategy with BMO Investments Inc. “Personal investing success largely depends on how well your portfolio fits with your short- and long-term goals; that’s why it’s important to ensure that your risk tolerance aligns closely with your age and life stage.” BMO SelectClass Portfolios specifically address investors’ risk tolerance,

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 84

whether conservative, bold or somewhere in between. With one investment decision, investors can access a range of mutual funds that cross asset class, sector and region. When an investment solution is properly diversified, it offers smoother returns over the life of the investment. This type of portfolio design can give investors confidence that they are on track to achieving their goals, such as being financially prepared for retirement. Investors can visit a BMO Bank of Montreal branch and speak to a financial professional about mapping out their financial goals, gauging their risk tolerance and focusing on the mutual funds that are most suitable for their individual circumstances.

CHILDPROOF your home

If you are a parent you are hyper aware that the outside world is chock full of potential dangers for your child. But what about your own home? t 8JOEPXTo1VUUJOHTBGFUZHVBSET on your windows is a good start, but your window covering may also present a potential hazard to your child. From Hunter Douglas, the LiteRise cordless lifting system on its Silhouette window shadings is an answer. The cordless operation not only makes raising, lowering and tilting the shading for variable light control easy, but the product also eliminates the need for cords of any kind. This makes Silhouette with LiteRise especially ideal for homes with young children and provides an uncluttered, tailored look at the window.

Teaching children

the ABCs of money

A

s Canadian households try to strengthen their balance sheets in the face of rising debt levels, financial experts are encouraging parents to teach their children about money and the value of saving from a very young age. “We don’t send our children into the deep end of the pool without teaching them how to swim. We shouldn’t send our children out into the workforce to lead independent lives without giving them the basics of financial literacy,”says Carrie Russell, senior vice president, TD Canada Trust.

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 100

Russell offers her tips on how to teach children the ABCs of money:

1 2 3 4

Talk regularly and honestly about money – Keep your eyes open for teachable moments every day, like getting them involved in saving for your next family vacation or explaining why you bought the orange juice that was on sale. Focus on explaining the reality of how much things costs and whether and why you do – or don’t – have the economic means to afford them. Link age-appropriate chores to allowance – Allowances are a great way to introduce children to the concept of saving and spending money independently. But it should come with strings attached. Connect your kids’ weekly pocket money to chores, like making their bed and clearing the table, to teach them that money comes from hard work. Open a bank account with your children – Unlike a piggy bank, paying allowance directly into a bank account is a great way to separate saving from impulse spending decisions. Help them set a savings goal for a new toy, and go online regularly together so they can see for themselves how their money is growing. Saving, spending and… sharing – Help your children find a cause they are passionate about, and teach them the value of giving back to their community by donating to a local charity, like an animal shelter or children’s hospital.

Taping tips

for the perfect paint job

W

hatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the secret to a wonderfully painted room? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hint: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the paint. A professional-looking paint job begins with a good painting tape. Not all tapes are created equal however, professionals say. To ensure maximum protection for baseboards, trim and doorways or to create sharp lines and a clean, smooth finish, make sure to use the right tape for the job.

Since tape is designed for use on different substrates, reduce the guesswork and use one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designed for multiple surfaces, like a popular brand called Painterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mate Green tape. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made from premium paper and backed with a oneof-a-kind adhesive that creates a tight seal on a variety of surfaces.

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 102

Even though taping may seem time-consuming, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important step in the painting process and is critical for protecting your surface. Here are a few tips to make the job easier: t "GUFSTFMFDUJOHUIFSJHIUQBJOUJOHUBQFGPSUIFQSPKFDU BQQMZUIFJUJOJOEJWJEVBM  one-foot sections instead of a long strip. When applied in one long strip, the tape stretches and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lay flat or stick properly, resulting in paint bleeding underneath. t 8IFOZPVMBZUIFUBQFEPXO CFTVSFUPCVSOJTIJUUPFOTVSFBUJHIUCPOEUPUIF surface. You can easily do this with a putty knife, 5-in-1 tool or credit card. t "MUIPVHINBOZUBQFTDBOSFNBJOPOUIFQBJOUJOHTVSGBDFGPSNPSFUIBOBXFFL  the best results come from removing the tape immediately after you are finished painting. This prevents paint from bridging over the tape and tearing during removal. t 5PSFNPWF TMPXMZQVMMUIFUBQFPGGBUBEFHSFFBOHMFUPXBSEZPVSTFMGBTTPPO as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done painting. t 3FNFNCFSoBUIPSPVHIUBQJOHKPCXJMMNBLFUIFmOBMSFTVMUTMPPLDSJTQFS and like it was done by a pro.

CHICKEN & VEGGIE Baked Burritos PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES COOK TIME: 20 MINUTES SERVES: 2 SERVING SIZE: 1 BURRITO CALORIES PER SERVING: 248 1 ¼ cup (300 mL) Healthy Choice Traditional pasta sauce, divided (see below) 2 small 6-inch (15 cm) low sodium multigrain flour tortillas ½ cup (125 mL) low sodium refried beans ½ cup (125 mL) each: shredded carrots and zucchini ½ cup (125 mL) diced cooked chicken 4 tbsp. shredded cheese (about 1/2 cup/ 125 mL) ¼ tsp. (1.25 mL) cayenne pepper (optional) 1 tbsp. (15 mL) finely chopped cilantro, for garnish ¼ cup (50 mL) guacamole (optional)

PANTRY STAPLES LIKE CANNED BEANS AND PASTA SAUCE ARE COMBINED WITH FRESH SHREDDED VEGGIES TO CREATE A DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS BAKED BURRITO THAT KIDS AND ADULTS WILL LOVE. Shopping Tip: Look for “no fat” and “no added oil” when shopping for healthier pasta sauce options. Plus, stock up on spices; cayenne pepper adds the Mexican flair without adding sodium! Healthy Cooking tip: Want to quickly add more protein to your burritos without the extra sodium? Use downtime to roast a whole chicken. Remove meat and store in your fridge. Freeze the bones for when you have spare time to make your own, lowsodium chicken broth.

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 104

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375F/190C; place tortillas on working surface. On each tortilla, evenly spread ¼ cup (50 mL) beans; top with ¼ cup (50 mL) each: shredded carrots, zucchini and diced chicken. Top with 1/8 cup (30 mL) Healthy Choice Traditional pasta sauce: roll each tortilla around ingredients and place seam-side down in oven proof baking dish.

How to keep the

KITCHEN SAFE T he kitchen is a great place for family members to come together. Cooking is a great way to involve the entire family in an activity while still getting dinner on the table. While this time can be a great way to bond, it can also be dangerous if food isn’t handled properly. Follow these food safety tips to keep the kitchen a safe and fun place:

Keep things separate: A combination of protein and vegetables is great for any meal, but keeping things separate is important for food safety. Designate a separate cutting board for meat and one for vegetables. Make things fun and creative for the kids by allowing them to pick out fun coloured cutting boards for each item. Avoid chemicals: Keeping the counters clean is important for food safety, as bacteria from the counter can transfer onto your food. To keep your kitchen counters clean, choose a product with naturally derived ingredients, such as Green Works All-Purpose cleaner. Green Works products are made with at least 95 per cent naturally–derived ingredients, so you can be sure the clean you are getting is without harsh chemical fumes or residue.

TRN05_SectionB_48pgs.indd 106

Remember the date: Remembering expiry dates is essential to ensuring the food you feed your family is safe. Make sure the expiry dates on your food containers are visible and rotate older products to the front when you bring new groceries home. Making sure you have the freshest food on hand is a great way to ensure your family’s meals are both safe and nutritious. Remember that healthy eating goes beyond your choice of food. Keeping your kitchen clean is a big part of making sure your family’s meals are as healthy as they can be. NC
