EDITORS’ NOTES

y

ou’ve decided it’s time to rent a new space. Now you have another decision to make – choosing your property management company. How can you check the reputation of the company or landlord you’re considering renting from? First, find out how long the company has been in business by asking the staff or visiting the company’s website. Most property management companies have well-established business practices in place to ensure that the customer comes first. If possible, drive around existing communities managed by the company you’re considering and speak to some of the renters in the building. Many property management companies will be able to put you in touch with people who can provide a testimonial. 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 a property management company that doesn’t willingly provide any information you 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! Let us know how your search for a new home goes. We’d love to hear from you.

ith vacancy rates so low for the past few years, landlords have been able to cherry pick their new tenants from a sea of applicants. I’ve heard everything – from bribes to bidding wars – with anxious apartment-hunters trying anything they think will swing a lease in their favour. And while I once popped in on a landlord with a beautiful bouquet to see if she’d made her choice, flowers aren’t any guarantee (though they helped me out in that instance!) and bribes aren’t appropriate. If you want to improve your chances of getting that elusive apartment, skip the florist and get your finances in order. Take care of any outstanding credit issues and secure your credit reports. Be punctual when you come to your viewing. Being friendly and courteous will go a long way. If you’re serious about getting an apartment, make sure you have enough money to cover the deposit. Most landlords want to see first and last month’s rent as a commitment. Have your cheque book ready. Keep a list of contact info with you – names, phone numbers and even email addresses of your landlord (the past two landlords if you’ve been at your current address less than two years), your references, your banking information and your employer. If you can get glowing letters of reference that you’re a good tenant and a reliable and responsible person, carry copies to leave with your application. Anything that sets you above the competition will help. You’re going to find the perfect apartment and we’re here to help! Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

THE WYNN GROUP Live large under new ownership and management at 2737 & 2757 Kipling Road

“W

e want to make our buildings a place where people want to come home to,” says Jeffrey Wynn, principal of The Wynn Group. Having acquired 2737 & 2757 Kipling Road just a year ago, he’s backing those words with some positive change – and you can see the difference.

The Wynn Group was familiar with the challenges of changing management, and had vision for improving the buildings in several areas. One of the major changes Wynn had at the top of his list wass upgrades. From landscaping and beautifying the grounds, to installing a grand marble lobby, refacing the elevators and laying new carpet, to upgrading and renovating apartment suites as tenants change, The Wynn Group infused a fresh, new vitality to a well-utilized building. The Wynn Group has a large portfolio of TheRentersGuide.ca rental buildings, and their experience in the industry spans more than 40 years in and around the GTA. It’s a familyowned and family run business, and Jeffrey is very hands-on when it comes to TheRentersGuide.ca

8G

structuring new projects and directing the management. Knowing what people want and what people enjoy in there homes is his concern and the company’s goal. This area of the city surrounding 2737 & 2757 Kipling is known as Smithfield. It’s an alluring area. Smithfield is a community where nature is just as close as urban amenities. There are parks and ravine land as well as malls and transit, and excellent highway access too. The neighbourhood is also close to GTA landmarks like Humber College North Campus and Woodbine Racetrack. At 2737 & 2757 Kipling there were a lot of vacancies when The Wynn Group took over the building. It had its challenges. But with some positive change and new direction, vacancies are a lucky find! With

two-bedroom suites priced from $999 and three-bedroom suites priced from $1099, the community is affordable while offering many new features and upgrades. While the lofty north Toronto location is quite appealing, some people crave urban living. Another community owned and managed by The Wynn Group is 103 & 105 West Lodge Avenue, at Queen Street West and Landsdowne Avenue. The lake, the trendy Queen West strip, the cultural enclave of Roncesvalles and the charm of High Park are close at hand to this location. Bachelors are priced from $750, one-bedrooms from $850 and two-bedrooms from $950 to $1,200. The location puts the city at your doorstep, with 24 hour TTC service and easy access to The Gardiner. For rental inquiries to these, and other properties owned and managed by The Wynn Group please call 416-968-9439. The newly launched website www.wynnrentals.com to TheRentersGuide.ca view properties, availabilities and even take virtual tours of some of the buildings, including suites, amenities and a neighbourhood overview.

Smithfield Lots to love, lots to do by Ivan Sandoval

W

here there are rivers, ravines and forests, there usually follows higher property values and thus higher rents. This is what makes the neighbourhood of Smithfield in northern Etobicoke so intriguing. That despite its infusion within the Humber River and its lush valleys, the affordability factor stands out to TheRentersGuide.ca the many renters who reside here. Add to it Smithfield’s close proximity to highways, shopping malls and a world-TheRentersGuide.ca renowned racetrack and you have the makings of a great place to find your next apartment or townhouse. TheRentersGuide.ca 12G

Fantasy Fair at Woodbine Centre

The Area The neighbourhood of Smithfield lies in the northwest region of Toronto. The Humber River actually provides the southern, eastern and western borders as it channels its way in different directions just south of Smithfield. Steeles Avenue acts as the area’s northern border, while for the purposes of this City Scene; Finch Avenue, Kipling Avenue and Martin Grove Road act as the area’s southern, eastern and western borders respectively. Etobicoke General Hospital sits at the top of the West Humber River Valley right across from Humber College’s North Campus, the two institutions highlighting Smithfield’s infrastructure. At the foot of the valley, walking and cycling paths have developed alongside the river providing residents with beautiful outdoor recreational options. Transportation is amongst the best in the city as TTC buses head straight to Kipling and Islington Stations. A GO Transit station is located north of Belfield Road on Kipling Avenue. Highways 427 and 409 are located just outside of Smithfield, both taking to you directly to Pearson Airport, while Highway 407 is located north of Steeles Avenue.

Shopping and Having Fun TheRentersGuide.ca

Albion Centre is the community staple, where residents do their local shopping. A grocery and lots of businesses

and services as well as the YMCA Rexdale Youth Centre are located here. Across the street, a big box plaza development anchors the community, which bodes well for the future of this neighbourhood. Woodbine Centre is the prize of Smithfield, a mall particularly great for families. The mall includes an indoor amusement park called Fantasy Fair where you find a Ferris wheel, train and children’s play village. The ever-improving Woodbine Racetrack continues to provide excitement for local residents. Located right at Highway 27 and Rexdale Avenue, this legendary facility includes standardbred racing, thoroughbred racing, over 1700 slot machine, bars, restaurants and lounges – all in one.

Renting in Etobicoke North Smithfield is a great neighbourhood located in a very convenient part of the city. Rental apartment buildings and a significant number of townhouse complexes have developed in groups scattered throughout the neighbourhood. Intersections such as Kipling/Steeles, Finch/Albion and Martin Grove/Albion include the majority of rental options. Rents are affordable, offering excellent value for your rental budget. There is a great variety of styles and sizes available in Smithfield. Families will find townhomes and the larger three-

Woodbine Racetrack

bedroom apartments – which can be difficult to find in some areas – as well as a great selection of bachelor, one- and two-bedroom apartments. In a community surrounded by plenty of greenspace, many buildings can offer magnificent and tranquil views.

Get a move on Surviving relocation

N

obody pretends that moving to a new home or condo is a walk in the park – but it needn’t be an out-and-out nightmare either. As moving day approaches, don’t wait to be overwhelmed with a flood of jobs that should have been tended to weeks before.

- If you’re doing the job yourself, book a truck. Self-movers should consult the truck rental company as to the truck size required to accommodate your belongings.

Here, you’ll find a step-by-step guide to easing some of the panic

- Take a good look at the floor plan of your new home and visualize your furniture arrangement. Decide which furniture you want to hang on to, and which, if any, should be set free.

associated with the big day:

8 weeks to go

- If you’re moving to a new town, make a phone call to the local Chamber of Commerce for information about schools, amenities, taxes, etc.

- Get estimates from several different moving companies and book a mover. If you decide to contract the mover to take care of your packing, arrange to have this done one or two days before the moving date.

- Properly dispose of anything you will be unable to move – ie, food in the freezer; flammable painting and cleaning supplies. If you’re moving from a condo, re-familiarize yourself with the contents of your locker.

5 weeks to go - Talk to your mover about costs, insurance, loading delivery and claims procedures. Ask your accountant about tax-deductible moving expenses, and be sure to retain any pertinent records. - Obtain copies of your family’s records from doctors, dentists, lawyers, accountants, etc.

-

Transfer your children’s school records. - Fill out a change of address form at the post office. Inform creditors, magazine subscriptions, etc., of your new address.

4 weeks to go

If necessary, book a baby-sitter for moving day. - Return library books, videos and items long ago borrowed from neighbours.

2 days to go

- Arrange storage if needed.

If you’ve hired movers to pack for you, they should be doing so now.

- If your furniture, curtains or carpets need fixing, now is the time to have the work done.

Set aside a suitcase with the clothing and toiletries you’ll need along the way, or upon arrival in your new home.

- If you don’t want it, unload it at a garage sale: less to move, cash to gain.

3 weeks to go - Estimate how many boxes you’ll need and collect them from neighbourhood stores. Also collect the following: - newspapers - bubble wrap - scissors - utility knife - packing tape and string - labels and markers - furniture pads - dolly Moving day may seem eons away, but it’s time to start packing those things you won’t use before the move. Arrange for cancellation of utilities, television programming, phone, Internet, etc., and arrange for their setup at your new home.

Pack a survival kit for your first day, including: - scissors and utility knife - coffee cups, paper plates and - paper towels - tea kettle, instant coffee, tea and water/ soft drinks - phone book, pens and paper - garbage bags - soap and towels Valuables and important papers should be carefully secured. Bring these with you instead of packing them in the truck. Defrost your refrigerator and freezer. Be prepared to pay the movers on delivery day.

2 weeks to go - Arrange for the transfer of your bank accounts to your new branch. - Cancel or re-direct any direct deposit or automatic payment arrangements.

If you’re taking a lengthy journey, make travel and hotel reservations.

- Talk to your veterinarian about the best way to move your pet.

Have your address changed on your driver’s license, registration and insurance, and your health card. In major city centres, much of this can be easily done at automated kiosks found in designated shopping malls.

- Cancel delivery services and newspaper subscriptions.

1 week to go TheRentersGuide.ca

- Have medical prescriptions transferred to a pharmacy in your new neighbourhood.

Moving day - Pick up the truck early, if you’re moving yourself. - Make a list of every item loaded onto the truck. - Provide the mover with a phone number through which you can be reached.

- Be available by phone to answer questions and direct the mover as needed. - Read the bill of lading before signing. - Put aside in a safe place until the transaction is seen through to the very end, including any settling of claims. - Ensure water and appliances are turned off in your old house. - Do a final inspection of your old basement, attic and garage. - Lock all doors and windows.

Upon arrival - As the truck is unloaded, check off each item on your list. Examine furniture for damage and settle your bill. - If you have children underfoot, open a box containing their toys and books. - Ensure utilities are in working order. - Sit back with the comforting beverage of your choice, ignore the disarray and feel proud.

CIBC Summer Travel Poll:

More than half of Canadians planning a summer vacation Canadians spending $1,600 on average for their summer getaway most are traveling within Canada

A

CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) poll conducted by Leger shows that 56 per cent of Canadians surveyed are planning to take a vacation this summer, at an average cost of $1,600 - down slightly from just over $1,700 last year. Most Canadians are planning to spend that money here in Canada for their July or August holidays. Key findings of the poll include: 56 per cent of Canadians surveyed are taking a vacation during July and August, similar to the 55 per cent finding from the same poll last year. TheRentersGuide.ca Among those Canadians planning a summer vacation: They intend to spend an average of $1,599 on their summer vacation in 2013, down slightly from $1,728 last year, 73 per cent are planning to TheRentersGuide.ca vacation within Canada, 25 per cent are visiting 36G

the U.S., and 9 per cent are travelling outside of North America* Among those staying in Canada, the average vacation cost is expected to be $1,406, while among those saying they are visiting the U.S., the average cost is expected to be $2,161. Residents of Manitoba and Saskatchewan plan to spend among the most on vacations this summer, averaging $2,075, while residents of Atlantic Canada plan to spend the least ($1,195 on average). “Our poll results show that Canadians are finding the balance between getting away for a well-deserved vacation this summer while holding the line on expenses,” said Cheryl Longo, Executive Vice President, Card Products, CIBC. “Canadians are being mindful of their budget and their broader financial goals this summer, and a great way to do that is to vacation here in Canada.” The poll also revealed: Of Canadians surveyed, those aged 35 to 54 are the most likely to take a summer vacation (64 per cent), and those aged 65 and older are the least likely (47 per cent). Families with children are somewhat more likely to get away this summer (64 per cent) than those with no children (53 per cent). TheRentersGuide.ca Top Travel Concerns for Canadians While vacations are meant to be fun, past CIBC research has

TheRentersGuide.ca


shown that Canadians do have concerns when they travel. Their top three concerns are: Falling ill while travelling (36 per cent) Losing money or credit cards (18 per cent) Overspending while on vacation (12 per cent) Canadians planning to travel can use the following advice to protect you from unexpected costs or other worries while travelling: Falling ill while travelling Many CIBC credit cards offer comprehensive travel medical insurance that can help to protect you in the event you need medical care when travelling. Visit cibc.com or call us to determine the benefits offered by your CIBC credit card before you go away. Losing your money or credit cards while travelling Bring a back up form of payment when travelling in the event you lose cash or your credit or debit card. For example, if you choose to pay by credit card on vacation, store a debit card or a small amount of cash separately, which you can use in an emergency. This works for international travel as well - the CIBC Advantage Debit Card can be used to pay by debit even when you are travelling outside Canada.

Overspending while on vacation You can reduce your costs by using loyalty points to help pay for hotels, rental cars, flights, and other travel expenses. A recent poll by CIBC indicated 37 per cent of Canadians used reward points to pay for a portion of their travel costs on a recent vacation. Use free budgeting tools such as CIBC CreditSmart - to set budgets and receive alerts if you exceed your budget, helping you stay on top of your vacation dollars. Or you can check on your accounts via Mobile Banking to keep on top of day to day spending while you are away. For more information and tips, visit the CIBC Advice Centre. Additional Data Quebec residents are the most likely to vacation this summer (62 per cent) and residents of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and B.C. are among the least likely (51 per cent). Atlantic Canadians are the most likely to travel within Canada (90 per cent), residents of Manitoba and Saskatchewan are the most likely to visit the U.S. (39 per cent), while those in Ontario and Quebec are among the most likely to vacation outside of North America (11 per cent). Among Canadians surveyed who are planning to take a vacation this summer, average amount they plan to spend, by region:

National Average BC Alberta Man/Sask Ontario Quebec Atlantic Canada

2013 $1,599 $2,045 $1,684 $2,075 $1,551 $1,450 $1,195

2012 $1,728 $2,147 $2,270 $1,707 $1,757 $1,321 $1,389

Among Canadians surveyed who are planning to take a vacation this summer, destination that they plan to travel to, by region*:

Canada National 73% B.C. 72% Alberta 74% Man/Sask 71% Ontario 74% Quebec 69% Atlantic Canada 90%

U.S. 25% 29% 34% 39% 23% 22% 17%

Outside of N. America 9% 7% 3% 5% 11% 11% 3%

* Totals add to more than 100 per cent as some respondents indicated they were taking more than one trip this summer. Results are based on a CIBC poll conducted online by Leger, which surveyed 1,503 Canadians. The associated margin of error for a probabilistic sample of the same size is +/-2.5%, 19 times out of 20. Polling was conducted between June 17 and 19, 2013.

Leslie Styles, foodie & travel aficionado, shares some delicious dishes found on her travels around the world.

Tagliatelle with Wild Mushroom & Brandy Cream Sauce with Boursin Directions

In a large skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, add the shallot and sauté for about eight to 10 minutes, until the onion is translucent and tender. Add the sliced cremini and shiitake mushrooms and sauté three to four minutes, until the mushrooms are lightly browned. Then add the shimeji mushrooms and sauté for about two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add a glug of brandy and cook for three to four minutes allowing the mixture to reduce. Then stir in the heavy cream, boursin and thyme. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the mushroom sauce for 10 minutes or so, stirring frequently. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

a

ny recipe that features wild mushrooms gets my attention, and especially if they’re combined with cream and a little brandy, cognac or Marsala, it becomes a rich and powerful flavour combination that can be the foundation for a host of fabulous dishes. Delicious served over any grilled meat or tossed with pasta, a fine Wild Mushroom & Brandy Cream Sauce is an indispensable part of many cooks culinary arsenal. An earthy combination of assorted wild mushrooms makes the sauce richer and more flavourful - varieties like shiitake, morelles, cremini, oyster, chanterelles, enoki or even shimeji - my new discovery. Shimeji mushrooms are the third most popular mushroom in Japan, after shiitake and enoki. They’re also called ‘beech mushrooms’ because they often grow on fallen beech trees, and with a white base and cracked, speckled brown caps, shimeji are attractive little mushrooms. Surprisingly they have no aroma, but once cooked, they have a smooth and crunchy texture like enoki, with a buttery and nutty flavour, and together with some shiitake and cremini mushrooms, became the foundation of my Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle.

Bring a large pot of water to boil and once bubbling, add the noodles and cooked according to the instructions on the package. Once done, add the pasta to the sauce and toss to coat. Add a handful of Parmigiano to the sauce and stir to combine. If the sauce is too thick, add some hot pasta water. Serve in warmed dinner bowls and garnish with some sprig of fresh thyme, a grind of black pepper and a sprinkle of Maldon salt.

Making the most of your

Balcony BY JANE HERMAN

W

hether your balcony is a sun-drenched southern exposure with a spectacular

view or a secluded shady nook, it’s

your own window onto the world below, an oasis in which to enjoy the fresh air, relax, catch some rays, read and entertain. Here are some of my favourite ideas for enjoying this most-under-utilized apartment feature.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca 88G

TheRentersGuide.ca


renters’help Use your imagination A balcony is useful to check the daily weather – but why not enjoy your morning coffee and the paper outside before you go to work? Perhaps you even have the space to do some stretches outside in the early AM sunshine, or partake of your lunch under an umbrella, with proper table linen and real dishes and a book – and savour the scenery. A cold supper picnic on the balcony with friends or neighbours could add tranquil pleasure to the daily dinner ritual. If you’re romantically inclined, consider a date night close to home at twilight with a nice bottle of wine. After the sun sets, take out your star chart and explore the night sky. Check out www.almanac.com/astronomy for tips on what to see and when. Don’t miss the Meteor Showers, visible this summer on July 30 and August 11 to 13 (visit www.almanac.com/content/meteor-showers-guide for complete details).

Create comfort You don’t need to invest a lot to create an attractive balcony. A couple of inexpensivebut-comfortable lounge chairs, a small side table – an umbrella if you need one – are sufficient to get started. Over time and you could add a waterproof rug, throw pillows, attractive containers, hanging baskets, even a bird feeder. Browse through your local Home Outfitters or Crate and Barrel for inspiration into the season’s patio must-haves. A set of plastic dishes and serving pieces, such as a pitcher and salad bowl will last for years. If you plan to garden on your balcony you’ll also need to invest in some simple tools and a watering can.

Transform your balcony into an urban garden The buzzword of the day is “sustainability,” which connotes greening our homes, workplaces and urban environment. Container-grown flowers, vegetables, and herbs support biodiversity by attracting pollinators such as butterflies and bees, adding to the oxygen in the air and helping to create a calming space in which to relax. In addition, it’s tremendously satisfying to eat or enjoy something that you’ve grown yourself – and don’t let the fact that you live in an apartment deter you. You can successfully grow tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, and other small vegetables in containers on your balcony, along with lettuces and herbs. Right now I am enjoying freshly snipped basil and oregano in my salad every day, and tea made from freshpicked mint leaves. Just make sure that you have adequate sun before setting out edible plants, otherwise, stick to shade-loving flowers.

Banish Clutter Too many apartment dwellers utilize their balconies as storage areas, creating an eyesore from the street and diminishing the building’s aesthetic. Try to store bicycles in your building’s bike racks in the garage along with your snow tires. Consider investing in a large plastic storage cupboard to conceal luggage, golf clubs, skis or other bulky items such as children’s toys. During Canada’s all-too-brief summer season, make your balcony your own personal retreat. The potential is yours to discover.

SpotleSS floorS

are yours with clever technology

W

ith a little guidance and the right tools, cleaning your floors can be done in no time – and can also save you the expense and headache of sending heavy loads, like area rugs, out for professional cleaning. The problem areas to tackle skillfully on any rug, say the pros, are spills and stains, dug-in grime, and tightly tangled hair around the fibres – all of which require examination before you proceed. “Every household should have a few reliable tools for do-ityourself maintenance, especially homes with growing families and pets,” says Andrew Santoni at appliance innovator, Electrolux.“Indeed, it is due to advancements in technology that daily housework routines are now so much easier.” A specialized vacuum for rugs and bare floor cleaning is one essential tool, he says, emphasizing that regular and thorough vacuuming is a key factor in maintaining a healthy and clean home environment. To reduce or eliminate inefficiencies try these few steps: Vacuum: • Do it frequently and thoroughly. Just one person sheds at least one hundred hairs and one million skin cells every day, so be sure to vacuum at least once per week in less trafficked areas and up to twice per week in high traffic areas, like the kitchen, bathrooms and front entranceway. • Use a speedier appliance. One of the persistent gripes when vacuuming, Santoni tells us, is the number of times one needs to stop, shear-off, or untangle a clogged brushroll. Now, a new innovation from Electrolux called Brushroll Clean Technology solves the problem with the touch of a button. This new feature is particularly popular with the latest Ergorapido model, selling now for around $150. It’s a slender stick vacuum with the ability to instantly pick up long hair, matted clumps, thread fibers, and TheRentersGuide.ca any kind of pet hair – and it can be converted into a detachable hand vacuum for crevices and tight corners. Better still, he says, the Ergorapido is cordless (with a rechargeable battery) and is really light to carry. At only 2.4 kilograms and with 180-degree swivel power, you can take it anywhere to easily vacuum under TheRentersGuide.ca couches, beds and kitchen stools.

Remove the stains: • Tackle spills immediately if possible. Blot or scrape the entire area first. • Before using any cleaning solution, test your carpet for discolouration in an inconspicuous spot. Don’t rub or you could spread the problem. • In an emergency, a teaspoon of mild detergent mixed with a teaspoon of vinegar in a bowl of warm water will deal with stains as alcohol, chocolate, coffee, fruit stains, gravy, soft drinks, urine, and blood. Clean: TheRentersGuide.ca • Read the label of a carpet cleaning product for suitability and follow the instructions. Move furniture out and use single, one-way strokes across the pile for best results. NC

Put the turkey breast, olive oil spice mixture and salt in a re-sealable bag, smoosh it around so the breasts are evenly covered, and let marinate for at least one hour. Heat barbecue to medium-high heat and place breast on the grill. Turn once or twice while cooking and remove when internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, 20 to 25 minutes.

Turkey Breast Salad with Wild Mushrooms

T

his salad is perfect to enjoy while we wait for the rest of summer’s bounty to arrive. The sweet fruit, meaty wild mushrooms, tart vinaigrette and smokey grilled turkey balance every bite out. Feel free to play around with the herbs and fruit or even the mushroom choice. Stuffing this into grilled portabellas would be delicious, too!

serves 4 IngredIents: For the turkey:

While turkey starts grilling, place cast-iron skillet on barbecue so it heats up. Add mushrooms, oil and garlic and toss gently to combine. Cook for seven to eight minutes without stirring, and then carefully toss them around to brown the other side. Once golden and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes, remove from heat and toss with tarragon and lemon juice. IngredIents: For the salad: Grilled turkey breast Cooked mushrooms 1 1/2 cups sliced red grapes 1 large gala apple, 1-in. dice 1/2 cup hazelnuts, skins removed and lightly crushed 2 tbsp fresh tarragon 1 large handful arugula leaves Lemon vinaigrette, *recipe follows

dIrectIons: Toss all ingredients except for the vinaigrette together to combine. Make vinaigrette and add 2 to 3 tbsp of it to the salad. Toss to combine. Serve extra vinaigrette on the side so you can decide how much or how little you like. IngredIents:

2 medium sized skinless, boneless turkey breasts

*vinaigrette:

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon zest, from 1 large lemon

1 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed

shopping for

small spaces by lisa canning

Living in a smaLL space comes with practicaL

challenges – a lack of storage being the main complaint from my clients. this lack of storage often means that everything is on display – and thus has to count. when i am shopping for my small space dwellers (and by the way, i am one too), i keep a few principles in mind to set them up for success. 01 QUALITY OVER QUANTITY in a small space, you don’t have the luxury to amass a great deal of stuff. thus, i am pretty rigorous regarding what comes in, and what exits a home. when selecting pieces i always ask – will this improve my client’s quality of life? will they be more organized because of it? will it enhance their enjoyment of the space? and once pieces come in, i try my best to ensure other unused things go out. my favourite places to find quality accessories include 1212 and Jamie alexander.

BE ORGANIZED professional organizers have taught me that a small space can be maximized with the right organizational tools. in a recent client’s project, we outfitted kitchen shelves with clear, stackable storage bins, which increased the usable space by 40 per cent. to do this, group like items together and then assess the size of bin that you need. retailers like solutions and neat offer diverse products to help increase shelf storage space. 02

TheRentersGuide.ca In

small spaces, I prefer to use large-scale art pIeces as opposed to collectIons of multIple frames.

TheRentersGuide.ca

FUNCTION CAN ALSO LOOK GOOD if you need to purchase a product for purely a utilitarian usage, make sure it looks good. i’ve recently been introduced to the Dyson air multiplier. not only a powerful fan, its slim and sleek design doesn’t take up visual weight – a huge plus when square footage is at a premium. i’m also a big fan of scandinavian and Japanese designed dishware. mjölk is a great resource for kitchen accessories that look beautiful as they serve their function. 03

04 MEASURE YOUR VISUAL WEIGHT overlooking the visual weight of a piece is a large TheRentersGuide.ca reason i get called in for design consultations. in a small space, a large sofa and a large chair will look cluttered and feel

Dyson air Multiplier is practical & beautiful and takes up little floor space

cumbersome. the same principle applies to using several dark, bulky, wooden pieces in close proximity. to lighten a space, pair a large sofa with two smaller chairs and swap out the wooden coffee table for a glass surface. glass or acrylic pieces can be found in many of my small space projects as they balance out some of the larger pieces in a room. For these more delicate pieces, i love retailers like cB2 and Urban Barn. GO LARGE WITH ART IN A SMALL SPACE in small spaces, i prefer to use large-scale art pieces as opposed to collections of multiple frames. i love the impact that is created by one TheRentersGuide.ca piece as it can ground the colour scheme of a room and provide a stunning focal point. 05

Four steps to fit

and fun summer living This powerhouse machine can whip up nutritious recipes that are perfect for any summer occasion. A nutrient-packed fruit smoothie takes only seconds to prepare with such a tool and is sure to please even the fussiest eaters. 2. Move it. Getting in shape doesn’t need to mean hours at the gym, especially during these warmer months. Simple activities like going for a bike ride or taking your dog for a walk are good ways to get moving while enjoying the outdoors. Swimming is a great low-impact, full-body exercise that lets you work out while cooling off. Or try another sport that you wouldn’t be able to participate in during winter, such as golf, outdoor basketball or beach volleyball. Making an activity part of your routine is the best way to keep at it, so set aside some time each day for exercise.

S

ummer means longer days, warmer temperatures and more time outdoors. The pleasant weather also brings opportunities to improve your lifestyle and start a new commitment to wellness. With a few tips, you can be on your way to fit and fun summer living. 1. Eat fresh. Summer is prime time for fresh produce, TheRentersGuide.ca and incorporating fruits and vegetables into your daily menu can be a delicious way to a healthy lifestyle. With a high-performance blender, you can easily make hundreds of whole-food recipes that taste great. For example, the new Vitamix 7500 can make tasty treats like a whole-fruit TheRentersGuide.ca smoothie, frozen sorbet, fat-free salad dressing or veggie dip.

3. Relax. Summer is the perfect opportunity to unwind and treat yourself to some“me”time. Focus on doing things you enjoy, such as finishing that book you’ve been reading for months, learning to how to surf or play tennis or simply basking in the sunshine—with the right protection: sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Whatever activity you choose, make time each week to let go and de-stress. Summer is a popular season for vacations to the beach and other outdoor destinations, but you can also find tranquility on your own balcony or deck. Meditation and yoga—done indoors or outside—are calming activities that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, too. 4. Sleep. You can improve your lifestyle even when you’re not awake. Good sleep habits are essential to physical and mental well-being, and inadequate rest can curtail your efforts to eat right and exercise. Muscles need time to repair and regenerate after working hard, making proper rest a vital component of any fitness routine. Make sure your bedroom is a comfortable temperature, adding fans or blankets as needed, and remove or turn off bright lights and electronic screens. Get into a nightly routine, and try not to eat or exercise for at least an hour prior to going to sleep. When you’re well-rested, other aspects of your improved lifestyle will be even more effective and enjoyable. TheRentersGuide.ca With a few lifestyle adjustments, you’ll be on your way to happy, healthy summer living. NC

moving

do your research and choose your mover wisely BY DA N HOPK I N S When it comes to moving, a little homework ahead of time can save a lot of headaches later on. Face it – your “stuff” is important to you, and you want movers who treat your furnishings and accessories that way. Some items like toasters and even sofas can be replaced if they are damaged, but other things such as family photos and heirlooms are irreplaceable. At Two Men And A Truck, we adopted the tag line “Movers Who Care” to reflect how critical it is to treat every move with complete respect for our clients and every one of their possessions.

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca


When you shop for a mover, remember that the lowest bidder is not necessarily your smartest pick. You want a company that has a track record for providing excellent service – with “service” being the key word. Customer service includes much more than the actual packing and transporting of your items; it starts with the first contact. You should be able to expect a pleasant, professional representative to provide you with an estimate that is well thought out and fair. Service extends to promptness, cleanliness and thoroughness at both ends of the move. It also involves open lines of communication. Ask questions of the movers you are considering – and if they are reluctant to give you a straight answer, move on to the nest candidate. One of the best ways to find a mover is through word of mouth. Ask your friends, neighbours and relatives which companies they used and how pleased they were. Another valuable resource is the Internet. Research moving firms and find out how long they have been in business. Find out if and how their workers are trained in the packing and transporting of goods. Ask what you can expect before, during and after the move. You can also check with the Canadian Association of Movers (movers.net), which has a web page for consumers. This trade association represents moving and storage companies and is aimed at helping customers connect with reliable, professional moving services. A look through the member directory and posted articles on this website is one more tool that can help in your search. Moving can be one of the most exciting – and most stressful – times of your life. Hiring a mover who cares as much as you do about getting your possessions from point A to point B efficiently, economically and safely will reduce the stress and increase the fun. Your movers play an integral role in helping you adapt to your new surroundings. If you are planning a move in the future, think ahead and start your research now.

TheRentersGuide.ca

The more comfortable and confident you feel in the mover you select, the smoother moving day will go. Customer service, walking the walk and talking the talk is really what it’s all about!

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: ________________________

TheRentersGuide.ca

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 TheRentersGuide.ca

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 TheRentersGuide.ca 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 What You Should Know Before you Sign a Lease

W

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 “lease.”

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: • The names of the landlord and tenant(s). • The address of the home or apartment you are renting. • The monthly rent you agreed to pay, with or without utilities, parking, cable television or other services. • The date when the rent is due (for example, on the first day of each month).

TheRentersGuide.ca • The amount and terms of any rent, security or damage deposits you agreed to pay.

• A list of which repairs or upkeep will be your responsibility. • The term of rental period (most rental agreements are usually for one year, but some may be month-to-month or week-to-week). • The conditions for ending or canceling your lease, including financial implications and the amount of advance notice you must give the landlord if you decide to move out (for example, 60 days notice). • The rules or restrictions for subletting the property. • The amount the landlord is allowed to increase the rent in the future. • Any other specific restrictions (such as whether or not you can smoke in the home and whether you can have boarders, pets or a waterbed, etc.). • Details on when and how the landlord can enter your home or apartment. • The procedure for making changes to the contract. • A method for resolving any disputes or disagreements (for example, disputes about late rent payments, damage to the property or eviction). • Contact information for both you and your landlord in case of an

emergency (usually including a phone number, fax and email). For more information or a free copy of CMHC’s Guide to Renting a Home, call CMHC at 1-800-6682642 or visit our website at www. cmhc.ca.

Packing Tips and List Tips to make your move a little easier. Packing TiPs

❏ ❏

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

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.

❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏

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

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

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

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

❏ 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.

❏ 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.

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

The break-up:

regaining financial stability after divorce is a priority TD Canada Trust offers advice to the newly single for laying the groundwork to long-term financial success If there is one constant in the entertainment gossip pages, it is celebrity divorces. While celebrity couples may appear to take this in stride, they are not immune to the financial blow felt by most couples going through a divorce. Recent research from TD Canada Trust suggests many Canadians may not be financially prepared for a break-up, but there are steps women and men can take to regain their financial footing as soon as possible after divorce. According to research conducted for TD Canada Trust, the majority of Canadians in serious relationships have shared assets. Of those Canadians currently in, or recently in, a relationship, 72 per cent own a home together, 68 per cent have a joint bank account, 64 per cent have a joint financial plan and 52 per cent have a joint credit card. And, divorce proceedings are taking longer, with 21 per cent lasting more than two TheRentersGuide.ca years, an increase of six per cent in the past five years. “Most Canadian couples are financially interdependent, and it is a real challenge trying to navigate the financial aftermath at the end of a relationship. Many people just aren’t prepared for the costs associated TheRentersGuide.ca

with divorce and how their lifestyles may change afterwards,” says John Tracy, senior vice president, TD Canada Trust. “It’s important for newly single Canadians to stabilize their financial situation after a break-up so that they don’t start taking on debt, and there are simple steps people can take to re-establish their financial independence at any stage in life.” John Tracy offers advice to newly single Canadians on how to regain financial stability: Get started: The first step in establishing your financial plan is to understand your current position. You and your partner may have joint assets and liabilities. You’ll need to work out the division of the assets and find out what liabilities you’ll be responsible for. Work with an expert to understand the implications of dividing your assets and get an accurate and thorough understanding of your financial position.

Speak with a financial advisor: If your partner was the one who was making most money-

related decisions, it’s time to take the reins on money management. Even if you’ve always been in charge of finances in your household, it’s important to reevaluate your goals and financial situation, and adjust your investments accordingly. Now is the time to reconsider your priorities and goals and what your retirement looks like. A financial advisor can help you navigate your way through these questions and help you create a financial plan. A plan is essential to organizing your financial resources so you can achieve your shortand long-term goals. Even if you and your former spouse shared a common financial advisor prior to the separation or divorce, your financial advisor should respect your privacy as you work together on your future financial plans. Focus on building wealth: Becoming financially independent means it is solely your responsibility to accumulate wealth for the future. Moving from a saving to an investing mindset is an effective strategy to help build your wealth over time - and it doesn’t need to be daunting. Look for investment options that offer a low minimum investment. Everyone has a different risk profile, though, so make sure you have the right mix for you. And, speak to your bank about setting up a pre-authorized transfer that automatically transfers a set amount at regular intervals throughout the year into your RSP. In addition to saving without having to think about it, regular contributions also let you benefit from dollar-cost averaging, which can help build your wealth faster. Start today and continue to track your progress: Once you have your plan in place, it’s time to move forward with your finances. Create a budget, stick to it and track your progress - being disciplined with your budget today will pay off in the future. It’s important to review your financial plan regularly to ensure it continues to evolve as your needs and lifestyle change. It’s not unusual to have an event that causes a detour in your plan, but a good advisor will be there to help you make sound choices to ensure your goals remain on track. And if you’re not sure how to balance competing savings, investing and debt priorities, try out the available online budgeting tools or visit your local branch and talk to an advisor. TD Bank Group commissioned Environics Research Group to conduct a telephone omnibus survey of 2,000 Canadians 18 years of age or older, with 1,379 who are currently or were recently in a serious relationship. Results were collected between January 5 - 15, 2012. TD Canada Trust offers personal and business banking to more than 11.5 million customers.

Family DINNER DILEMMAS

solved Iron Chef meal kits starring in a kitchen near you

F

or most busy working parents, finding recipe inspiration at the end of a long workday is the last thing on their minds. In fact research has found that 75 per cent of Canadians have no idea what they will be preparing for dinner when they arrive at home. With so much going on in our fast-past lives it’s no surprise these family dinner dilemmas push many of us to call for take-out instead of creating a home cooked meal from scratch. According to renowned nutrition expert, Dr. Mark Hyman in his article: “How Eating at Home Can Save Your Life” from the Huffington Post: “In 2010, 50 percent of meals were eaten away from home. More meals are eaten in the minivan than the kitchen.” He advises that families should eat more meals at home as this practice can lead to healthier and better-adjusted children and parents. More and more Canadians are heeding this advice thanks to the rise in popularity of readyto-prepare meal kits that are making life easier for families on the run. Meal kits incorporating fresh ingredients like vegetables, chicken and beef are growing in popularity as they offer a combination of convenience and fresh foods that are in demand with health-conscious consumers. The new exciting entry on the scene is the Iron Chef America brand that recently launched À La Cuisine home meal kits, inspired by the Food TheRentersGuide.ca Network’s esteemed Iron Chef America (ICA) series. The popular show features a weekly culinary battle that pits chefs from near and far against one of its own Iron Chefs. Inspired by the successful program, the À La Cuisine home meal kits allow you to become your very own Iron Chef. Each TheRentersGuide.ca kit can be prepared in three easy steps using a

standard 10 or 12 inch skillet, beginning by adding the meat, then sauce, and finally the vegetables. The meal kits feed a family of four in as little as 12 minutes and currently features eight delicious selections: Butter Chicken, Spicy Szechuan Chicken, Chicken Garam Masala, Sweet & Sour Chicken, Sesame Beef, Mongolian Beef, Thai Green Curry Beef and Mandarin Orange Beef. Unlike most other leading meal kit brands famous for being par-cooked, precooked, or single serve microwavable meals, À La Cuisine home meal kits set a higher food quality standard by providing only the freshest vegetables and sources of protein that are low in sodium and preserve their nutritional value, taste and texture. “The meal kits make it easier for families to spend time together over meals by eliminating all the time-consuming chores that come with meal planning and preparation”, explained A. Elman, senior VP of Sales & Marketing for Premier Meat Packers, who acquired the À La Cuisine (ICA) North American License TheRentersGuide.ca for all food categories. The kits retail for $14.99 and are available in the frozen food section in grocery store chains across the country. More information on the different meal kits and complimentary side ideas are available at ironchefamerica.tv. NC

quicktips

Parents and caregivers of young children should be

extra cautious in extreme heat • Dress kids in loose-fitting clothing, a breathable hat, and keep them in the shade whenever possible. • If available, check the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) at www.airhealth.ca before leaving the house as children tend to be more sensitive to air pollution, which is often at higher levels during extreme heat. • Learn to recognize the symptoms of heat illnesses including unusual sleepiness or temper tantrums, dizziness, fainting, nausea, vomiting, headache, rapid heartbeat or breathing, extreme thirst and decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.

A

s a parent or caregiver, you should be aware of the increased health risks to infants and young children posed by extreme heat. While all children can suffer from heat-related illnesses, at highest risk are those with asthma, heart or kidney problems, mental or physical disabilities, developmental disorders, diarrhea and those on certain medications.

Young children and infants are one of the groups identified by Health Canada as having increased health risk during extremely hot weather. Parents and caregivers can find more information and advice at www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/sun, such as the helpful brochure Protect Your Children from the Heat, also available by emailing publications@hc-sc.gc.ca or calling 1-866-225-0709. NC

If children in your care are at increased risk, speak to your primary care provider about the specific steps you should take to minimize the dangers during very hot weather.

You can also take the following precautions to keep infants and young children safe in the heat:

What to do During a Power outage by Jane Herman

R

ecently, a power outage in my neighbourhood left me without power for most of a day. Fortunately the power came back on without too much inconvenience but it reminded me of the need to be prepared for such an eventuality. While most power outages will be over almost as soon as they begin, some can last much for days or even weeks depending on circumstances. Power outages are often caused by freezing rain, sleet storms and/ or high winds which damage power lines and equipment. Cold snaps or heat waves can also overload the electric power system, thus increasing their likelihood during severe weather.

During a power outage, you may be left without lighting, and electricity for cooking, hot water, or even running water. If you only have a cordless phone, you will also be left without phone service. If you do not have a battery-powered radio, you may have no way of monitoring news broadcasts. Your laptop may work, but if it’s connected to a network from a modem that’s plugged in, it won’t work. In other words, you could be facing major challenges. You can lessen the impact of a power outage by taking time to prepare in advance. You should be prepared to manage on your own during a power outage for 48 to 72 hours. This involves: TheRentersGuide.ca

1

Making a family emergency plan, so that everyone knows what to do, and where to go if you need to leave your apartment. TheRentersGuide.ca

2

Putting together an emergency kit, so that you and your family can be self-sufficient for 48 to 72 hours. If the power does go out and you do not have access to news broadcasts, you should phone your hydro company to determine how long the power might be out. You can contact the city to find out if and where the city has set up temporary reception centres to accommodate residents who cannot stay in their homes because of the situation. If you are a senior or are disabled and require transportation to such a centre, this can also be arranged. In an apartment, you should not use any kind of generator or non-electric stove or heater as you have no chimney or other way to vent it. Don’t even think of setting such a device up on your balcony – it would endanger you and other building residents and would be

a serious fire and carbon monoxide hazard. Likewise, trying to cook on a barbecue or propane stove is also strictly prohibited.

If elevator service is temporarily suspended, you should have an alternate evacuation route planned if you need to vacate the building, especially if you are a senior or rely on electricity to power essential medical equipment.

If you are elderly or have a disability, advise the management that you may need assistance staying in your apartment or that you must be evacuated if there is a power outage. This will allow the management to plan and make the necessary arrangements on your behalf.

TheRentersGuide.ca You may want to ensure you have a land-line and corded phone in your apartment, as most cordless phones will

not work during a power outage. Turn off all your lights and appliances so that when power is restored, there will not be a power surge. Protect TVs, DVD players, and computers with a surge protector. Try to stay in your apartment as long as you can – but if the temperature becomes extreme, (hot or cold, depending on the season and circumstances) you can seek shelter in one of the city’s reception centres. All tenants should carry renter’s insurance. That way if there is any damage to your property in your apartment as a result of the loss of power, you are protected. If the power is expected to be off for some time, try to use up some of the perishables in your refrigerator first. Perishables such as milk and other dairy products can only last for six to eight hours. If the power is off for more than one day, during the winter you can transfer some items to a cooler on an unheated balcony. If in doubt you may have to throw the food out. (Use your Green bin!)

very dangerous and cause many fires during power outages. Don’t use candles unless you have no other source of light. Do not use candles in bedrooms and never leave them unattended. Place in sturdy containers and put them out before going to sleep).

After the power is restored: Items to have on hand: • Bottled water – at least two litres of water per person per day. Include small bottles that can be carried easily in case of an evacuation order • Food that won’t spoil, such as canned fuit, fish, vegetable, soup, dry cereal, peanut butter, crackers, powdered milk, energy bars and dried foods (remember to replace the food and water once a year) • Manual can opener • First aid kit • Special items such as prescription medications and infant formula • Extra keys to your car and apartment • Cash in smaller bills, such as $10 bills (travellers cheques are also useful) and change for payphones (your cellphone may run out of battery). • A copy of your emergency plan and contact phone numbers. Recommended additional items

Don’t open your freezer or refrigerator unless it is absolutely necessary. A full freezer will keep food frozen for 24 to 36 hours if the door remains closed.

EmErgEncy SuppliES to KEEp on Hand You should always have a flashlight (and extra batteries), a battery-powered or wind-up radio, and a charged cellphone or landline available to use in an emergency. (I keep a flashlight in a cupboard that I can easily find in the dark if necessary and check it regularly.) If you have a laptop or tablet, it may TheRentersGuide.ca continue to work but the Internet may be down because of the loss of power. Should you use candles? Candles are

it in a backpack, duffel bag or suitcase with wheels, in an easy-to-reach, accessible place. Make sure everyone in the household knows where the emergency kit is.

• A change of clothing, toiletries and footwear for each household member • Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each household member • A whistle (in case you need to attract attention) • Garbage bags for personal sanitation

• Reset your clocks, automatic timers, and alarms. • Restock your emergency kit so the supplies will be there if needed again.

maKE an EmErgEncy plan Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family to know what to do in case of an emergency. Remember, your family may not be together when the power goes out. Start by discussing what could happen and what you should do at home, at school or at work if an emergency happens. To be prepared, make a list of what needs to be done ahead of time and how to contact one another. Store important family documents, such as birth certificates, passports, wills, financial documents, insurance policies, etc. in a safe and secure location.

• Toilet paper and other personal care supplies • Safety gloves • Basic tools (hammer, pliers, wrench, screwdrivers, fasteners, work gloves) You can also purchase a pre-packaged emergency kit from the Canadian Red Cross at redcross.ca, from the St. John Ambulance/Salvation Army at sja.ca. Make sure your kit is easy to carry. Keep

Enjoy mouth-watering

stuffed pork chops hot off the grill

P

acked with juicy flavour, this cheesy recipe is perfect for summertime grilling. The balsamic reduction adds a refined touch, and can serve as an excellent garnish for a variety of

dishes such as salads, meats, fish, fruit salad or even ice cream. More great recipes can be found online at www.saputoalacarte.ca.

MOZZARELLISSIMA AND APPLE STUFFED PORK CHOPS SERVINGS: 4 TO 6 PREPARATION: 20 MINUTES COOKING: 10 TO 15 MINUTES INGREDIENTS: 2 cups (500 mL) balsamic vinegar 6 tsp (30 mL) honey 12 oz (340 g) Mozzarellissima cheese, grated 3 green or red apples, grated juice of half an orange 2 to 3 green onions, finely chopped 2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed olive oil, to taste salt and pepper, to taste 6 pork chops, butterfly cut

DIRECTIONS: Soak toothpicks in water for ten minutes, to prevent them from burning when cooking the pork. In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, reduce the balsamic vinegar and honey for 15 minutes, until it is a syrupy texture and the liquid has reduced. Set aside. In a bowl, combine cheese, apples, orange juice, onions and thyme. Add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and mix well. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper to taste. Place 2 to 3 tbsp (30 to 45 mL) of stuffing on each pork chop and close with toothpicks.

Cook on grill over medium heat for five to seven minutes on each side. Serve with a skewer of mixed grilled vegetables drizzled with balsamic reduction. Tip: The balsamic reduction can easily be prepared ahead of time and kept inTheRentersGuide.ca the fridge for up to a week. It will harden when chilled, but a few seconds in the microwave will restore its original texture. NC

Cosy quarters Designer Yanic Simard reveals how he lives large in a small space By Sara Duck PhotoS By BranDon Barre

TheRentersGuide.ca TheRentersGuide.ca


The old adage is True, good Things do come in small packages! Case in point, designer Yanic Simard’s impeccably decorated 640-sq.-ft. two-bedroom Victorian home in Toronto. While many people think bigger is better when it comes to owning real estate, Yanic saw the immediate potential in this cosy gem and set out to prove that he can live large in a small space. “Choosing a house with a good frame is key when wanting to design a space that feels bigger than it actually is,” says Simard. The quaint home he chose boasts large appeal with 10- and 11-ft. vaulted ceilings, eight-ft. doors and oversized baseboards, elements that helped kick-start his overall design inspiration.

Beyond the product:

The new consumer transaction

W

hether it’s buying morning coffee, getting a haircut or purchasing movie tickets, consumers want greater flexibility in paying for goods and services. The number of credit and debit card transactions continues to increase, however payment with a physical card may soon be a thing of the past. In a connected world where smartphone and tablet usage continues to rise, this presents a shift in the way traditional payments are being accepted. According to Pivotal Payments, one of Canada’s leading payment processing companies, businesses both big and small can have a competitive edge by offering mobile payment options that are flexible and cater to their customers’ changing needs. “We’ve seen rapid growth of mobile payment applications due to the solution’s affordability, security and universality,” said Shaun McDonald, vice president, Product and Project Management of Pivotal Payments.“Mobile payments allow merchants traditionally unwilling to accept credit cards to expand their payment options.” With the use of a small card reader, merchants owning an iPhone, Android or BlackBerry device can easily accept credit cards at a relatively low cost. Some see this as a stop-gap between the use of physical credit cards and mobile wallets. In the case of mobile wallets, a consumer’s own smartphone becomes the payment source, with an application that stores their credit card information. As consumer behaviour evolves and accepts these new technologies, it will usher in a new era TheRentersGuide.ca of payment processing where an actual credit card may not necessarily be required to make what we now consider a credit card purchase.

Outside play can be educational for kids

1: Encourage your kids to feel the earth! Plant a tree or a shrub and explain how trees renew our air by absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.

S

chool might be out for the summer, but that doesn’t mean learning has to stop. Summer is the perfect time to teach your kids about the real “birds and bees” while exploring nature in a fun and interactive way. Parents want their children to have an appreciation of the environment and a survey conducted by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) revealed that 80 per cent of Canadian parents have had the “Green” conversation with their kids. “Some of my favourite childhood memories are from when I was outside, enjoying nature and it’s not surprising that parents want their children to experience their environment, just like we did when we were kids,”says Mary Desjardins, executive director, TD FEF.“Many parents have told us that environmental education is a top priority for them and that’s exactly why we combine learning with nature through our funding of outdoor classrooms across Canada throughout the school year.” Outdoor classrooms bring learning to life and provide the opportunity to integrate nature into school curriculum. An outdoor classroom can be used in every season and can be designed to fit the needs of your local school. Their designs incorporate seating and teaching platforms and can be used for every subject. Combining nature and learning offers a hands-on experience for children.

TheRentersGuide.ca

In the meantime, before the next school year begins, here are some fun summer activities for your child that incorporates learning about the environment. To find out more about outdoor classrooms, look into the policies and guidelines of your local school board. To learn more about funding outdoor classrooms visit http://fef. td.com/resources/ TheRentersGuide.ca NC

2: Get them to spot signs of life. Ask your kids to look for spider webs, bugs or animal tracks and tally how many signs of life they can find. 3: Set them up with exploring tools. Give your kids a magnifying glass, a notebook and a book about trees in your province. Encourage them to observe the nature that surrounds them. 4. Sign up for a community greening project, such as TD Tree Days, as a family to teach your kids about the environment and community involvement at the same time! Source: These are some of the findings of an Ipsos Reid survey conducted between March 20th to 25th, 2013, on behalf of TD Friends of the Environment. For this survey, a sample of 1,004 Canadians, including 221 parents, from Ipsos’ Canadian online panel was interviewed online. In this case, the survey is accurate to within TheRentersGuide.ca +/- 3.5 percentage points had all Canadians adults been polled and to within +/7.5 percentage points had all Canadian parents been polled.
