Can you believe it? Spring must actually have finally arrived! Future Shop will be running their third annual barbeque fundraiser in memory of Doug Paquette in a couple of weeks, on Saturday, May 18th. All proceeds come to the CDC in support of our music programming for our daycare classes.

Are you aware of Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSP)? They are available for Canadians under 60 years of age that are eligible for a disability tax credit (or that provide eligibility for their parents). It is a very worthwhile initiative, especially for families and individuals with lower income levels. There is more information here.
