Living in Canada means snow will be upon us, and the weather will not be forgiving. Understanding we
can’t and won’t let snow stop us from going outdoors, we have put together some helpful tips for our
- Stay indoors if you can! If you don’t have a reason to go out, stay indoors. Sit back in your comfy
recliner, kick your feet up and put on your favourite tv or radio show.
- Layer up if you must go outside. We spent our younger years telling our children to wear their
jackets, boots, hats and mittens to prevent getting cold but now it’s time we listen to our advice.
Make sure you wear layers (sweaters, thick pants, warm socks), as well as warm mittens, hats
and scarves that will keep the chill (and snow!) out.
- Don’t shy away from hiring someone. There’s nothing wrong with asking for assistance! The
young gentleman down the road would love to shovel your driveway for you. Hire him and his
friends to ensure you don’t slip on hidden ice, or hurt yourself trying to shovel the snow.
- Use public transportation. If you don’t have to drive and have access to public transportation,
you are much safer with this route!
