UCPR says protect campground tax break

Monique Poirier, conférencière du deuil

Suite au décès de son fils, Monique Poirier commença à donner des conférences gratuites au gens vivant un deuil. Depuis 2010 elle est animatrice pour La Traversée à Rockland. La Traversée est un groupe d’entraide qui offre un soutien, un accompagnement pour aider les endeuillé(e)s à naviguer à travers cette dure épreuve et pour redonner un sens à la vie. Selon elle le deuil est l’ensemble des réactions d’ajustement, d’adaptation et de transforma- tion nécessaire pour que les gens puissent vivre sainement et de façon autonome après le décès d’une personne significative. La première conférence aura lieu au restaurant Le Chardo à Alfred le 21 septembre à 19h.

Copies of the resolution will go to the small business and tourism minister and to all Ontario MPs.

The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) has begun sending out notices to campground owners that their commercial income tax files may undergo reassessment because of an agency policy change dealing with the small business tax deduction.
