The Oldest City In Canada
There are a few versions of what is the oldest city in Canada. It might actually depend on how you look at it. Pre Cannda, actually began long before the first city was established. It was during the final glacial period that the Paleo-Indians migrated from Alaska which was not yet America. Through the next thousands of years, indigenous groups would establish settlements across Canada reaching from what is now considered the West Coast to the East Coast. Europeans landed in Canada as early as 1497. The theory is that St. John’s Newfoundland was actually the first settlement, and discovered by John Cabot, however there is evidence that there was a colony there up to 500 years prior. Sir Humphrey Gilbert of Britain established a formal claim to the island in 1583 and created barriers in the form of penalties to any settlement on the island as they took advantage of the abundant fish trade. Although it was established in 1519, It was not until 1855 that a local government was formed. The city was incorporated in 1888. Quebec was first claimed in 1534 by Jacques Cartier through the St. Lawrence River. Most settled along the river and in what […]
Made In Canada Labelling Regulations
Did you know that there are actually Made In Canada guidelines under the Competition Act, the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act and the Textile Labelling Act? They were actually put in place in 2010 to try to prevent misleading claims for the coveted label. It used to be that products only had to be 51% made in canada to use the claim and appeal to the desire of Canadians to buy at home. The guidelines state initially that 98% of the cost of the item for sale should be spent in Canada. But how is that a sure thing you ask. I would ask the same thing. It could be made outside Canada, transported here and then sold to the business who is claiming it was made here because it was paid for here. There is a solution to that. 51% of the direct cost of the production still needs to be done in Canada. There is another factor though. It also has to have the most substantial transformation as they call it, completed here in Canada. If part of the item is made in another country, the product claim must indicate that in their “Made In Canada” statement. For […]
Canadian Gas Stations
The gas industry in Canada is mostly produce from Ontario and Quebec which account for approximately 60% of our consumption. Because the oil refineries in Canada can not accommodate our huge requirements at Canadian gas stations, the rest comes from somewhere else. There is an excellent article from the Globe and Mail that outlines where a majority of Canada’s product is refined and who fills in the gaps. The great things is that it was last updated in May, 2018. So unless there have been some major changes, the information is up to date. What I have done is compiled a list of well known service stations along with a bit of history and who owns them now. Thankfully we do have some accessible choices across the country. If you know of any that are missing please let me know. Canadian Gas Stations: Federated Co-operatives Saskatoon, SK This cooperative began in 1944 in Saskatchewan when a bunch of smaller cooperatives joined forces. They are located in cities and towns across Canada and get their gas from their own oil refinery in Regina Saskatchewan. I think the competition in some areas is too great so they do not have locations in […]
