I hope your Easter weekend was filled with family and friends and too much food like mine.

Tickets are on sale now for the KC Rotary Dream Home at 281 Blair Creek Drive. There are early bird draws as well but, the main point is that proceeds go to St. Mary’s and Grand River Hospital Foundations and Hospice of Waterloo Region. If you want to support these extremely worthwhile causes and have a little fun dreaming – just let me know or visit the Dream Home itself. I will be there the next couple of Sunday afternoons or you can Check out the full schedule and information at;




Tax Packages; The March 29 tax package mailings will conclude this year’s tax reporting. However, clients should be aware that it is possible for issuers to amend previously reported information resulting in amended tax packages.


This Past Week; We were back to a positive week for most global equity markets with the TSX up 0.9%, the DOW up 2.4%, and the SP500 2.0% on the positive side. Markets are still down year to date. I am sure you understand from our updates you should be prepared for the probability of more volatility before this pullback is over.

The Weekend/Weather; We have some cool spring weather in the forecast so much like with the markets, we have to exercise some patience for right now.

I hope you have an enjoyable week!
