I had the pleasure of visiting the Freedom Kitchen located at 567 Sackville, Drive, Lower Sackville, NS. A wonderful organization helping those in need. Freedom Kitchen Serves free meals every Monday from 4:00-6:00 pm from their location outside of Knox United Church.

The pandemic highlighted long-standing challenges associated with infection control, staffing, and infrastructure in long-term care. Therefore, I am pleased to share that the Health Standards Organization has released a new national standard for Canada’s long-term care sector.
The new standards are informed by long-term care residents, family members and caregivers and are designed to deliver reliable services in a safe physical environment.

SAVING FAMILIES MONEY BY CUTTING CHILD CARE FEES
To help make life more affordable, last year we cut childcare fees and added affordable spaces in every province and territory. These savings are making a difference from coast to coast to coast – here is an example of what we’re hearing from Canadians on social media: “My daughter’s daycare fees have dropped from $1200 to $500 per month as well. It sure reduces the stress, including the strain on us grandparents.” – Greg Austin
