Prolonged Stays in the USA/Homeland Security/Income Taxes

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

I am not sure that the advice you gave William in B.C. is correct regarding prolonged stays in the U.S. with respect to consequences from the U.S. government.

I was wondering what the effect will be on Canadian health coverage for Canadians who would be out of Canada for more than 183 days. I believe that, at present, the time out […]

Competitive Prices

Dear Bird Talk, I think it is great that the CSA supports the Medipac Insurance program and vice/versa. It is an important membership benefit to a lot of members and I am sure the insurers have a successful operation financially. However, what bothers me is that it is not cost effective for all members and […]
