Older adults at risk of experiencing harm related to substance use

When a 24-year-old person walks into a doctor’s office appearing confused, agitated or tired, the physician will know something is amiss and will explore the potential that this person has consumed drugs. But there is a good chance that the same symptoms will not raise red flags for a 74-year-old patient. In addition, an older adult’s dwindling social circle can increase the risk of challenges related to substance use going unnoticed.

Canadians across the country are invited to join the millions of people who celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Dog on February 16, 2018, with a variety of age-old traditions

It makes sense to start new beginnings with something you love, so when Jen Sookfong Lee wakes up on the morning of the Chinese New Year, she and her son “eat a piece of candy to ensure the coming year is sweet,” she says. “And we greet each other with Gung hay fat choy.”
In exchanging wishes for a prosperous new year – Gung hay fat choy in Cantonese and Gong xi fa cai in Mandarin – Lee joins the millions of people around the world who observe this important celebration, which is rooted in the lunisolar calendar.

Looking back on 55 years of land conservation

Life, EducationRandallAnthony CommunicationsComment

In 1962, a group of naturalists in southern Ontario was alarmed by development activities that they saw encroaching on important habitat for plants and animals. Recognizing that this was not just a local, but a national, issue, they created the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) to acquire and protect land under threat. Fifty-five years later,  NCC reaches from coast to coast to coast and has protected 2.8 million acres (more than 1.1 million hectares) of Canada’s most important natural habitats.
