Share this article and your comments with peers on social media FSRA updates title reg proposal Most Canadians know that financial planning is good for them, yet far too many fail to act on their best intentions. Why is that? Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC) asked Certified Financial Planner (CFP) professionals to weigh in on this question. With Financial Planning Week just around the corner (November 19-25), FPSC is sharing the results to highlight some of the key issues that prevent Canadians from engaging more fully in financial planning. Keywords Financial planningCompanies Financial Planning Standards Council Related news IE Staff FP Canada, IQPF update projection assumption guidelines amid pandemic “Confusion, procrastination and some long-standing myths continue to be serious roadblocks standing in the way of Canadians bringing more financial planning into their lives,” says Tamara Smith, vice president of marketing and consumer affairs, FPSC. Earlier this fall, FPSC surveyed CFP professionals across Canada inviting them to share why they think too many Canadians fail to engage in financial planning. The following are the seven highest ranked statements in which CFP professionals provided a rating of seven or higher on a 1-10 scale (with 10 indicating very strong agreement): They think financial planning is only about investing or retirement, 86% They are too busy and fail to make it a priority, 85% They don’t realize the value financial planning could have on their life, 83% They procrastinate and think they have plenty of time, 82% They think financial planning is about ‘numbers’ and don’t realize it’s for life goals, 80% They think they have to be wealthier to merit having a financial plan, 75% They think if they have an RRSP or some investments then they have a financial plan, 74% “Each year in FPSC’s Value of Financial Planning study, we see that those Canadians who engage in comprehensive financial planning feel further ahead in their financial and emotional wellbeing than those who do not. The more than 3 million Canadians who work with CFP professionals can likely attest to this experience but it’s the Canadians who have not yet embraced financial planning that we need to reach,” says Smith. New results for the third year of FPSC’s longitudinal study will be released during Financial Planning Week.

first_imgCommunity urged to have their say on Yarraman Waste Management Facility Upgrade Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is urging the community to have their say on the concept design of an upgraded waste management facility at Yarraman.The community can provide feedback on the new design until 5.00 pm, Friday 11 December through Council’s Your Say page.TRC Water and Waste Portfolio Leader Cr Nancy Sommerfield said upgraded waste transfer facilities are a cleaner, neater and tidier waste solution.“The Yarraman upgrade would see the construction of our Region’s first Tier 4 waste management facility,” Cr Sommerfield said.“The new facility would be built on the site of the existing landfill and designed as a smaller version of the Region’s state of the art flagship, the Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility.“Transfer stations reduce the need for regional landfills ensuring better environmental outcomes for the community.“The new design allows waste to be stored on hardstand pavement, and transported to landfill locations offsite, reducing the extent of odour, dust, and animal/rodent control required.“Litter prevention controls would also be in place to contain windblown litter from the facility and prevent it from entering drains.“The YourSay page contains a virtual flythrough of the proposed facility in Yarraman so residents can quickly understand the look and feel of the site.“We would like to hear from the community, what you like or don’t like about the design and if there is anything you would like to improve?“Make haste, and don’t waste the opportunity to have your say on the new Yarraman Waste Management Facility.”TRC Water and Waste Chair, Cr Rebecca Vonhoff said, Council is planning for the long-term management of waste through our Waste Infrastructure Plan.“Council has 23 Waste Management Facilities throughout the Region, which is the highest number of any local government in Queensland. Many of these facilities are located in smaller populated regional communities,” Cr Vonhoff said.“A number of our older regional landfills are reaching capacity and are not able to be upgraded due to the sites being unsuitable for future development.“As a result, Council will replace some sites with new, modern waste transfer facilities that are convenient for each community.“Council has opened four new waste management facilities This includes the award-winning Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility at O’Mara Road, Wellcamp, which is the model for all future facilities.“We are also in the final stage of construction of the new Tier 2 facility at Kleinton.“As part of our integrated waste management network, our facilities will ensure that 98% of residents live within a 20-minute drive from a waste management facility.”To have your say on the Yarraman Waste Facility upgrade go to or contact Council on 131 872 quoting ‘Yarraman Waste Facility’. /Public Release.

The 96-page journal features stories, poems, photographs, interviews, essays and artworks on the theme “Death of the New West?” The cover features a painting by CU-Boulder fine arts Professor Chuck Forsman, whose work is part of the collection of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. “I wanted to create a magazine that’s more about questions than it is about answers,” said editor and publisher Steven Wingate, CU-Boulder writing instructor. “My hope is that we’ll have people debating topics with each other within the pages and taking unique stands on contemporary social issues. Hence the name ‘divide.’ ” Among the other 20 contributors to the inaugural issue are award-winning authors Dorianne Laux, David Mason, James Tipton and CU-Boulder professor emeritus Reg Saner. The contents focus on the relationships among Western myths and the ways we currently inhabit the Western landscape.

The latter event is a joint reading also featuring “Sites of Insight: Colorado Sacred Places,” edited by divide’s fiction editor, James Lough. The first theme of divide explores some of the contradictions that make up cultural life in the West, Wingate said. The next issue, titled “Pax Americana,” will deal with the complex cultural relationships between the United States and the rest of the world following Sept. 11. It will be released in September 2004. The journal is published by the CU-Boulder Program for Writing and Rhetoric with support from the Sewall Residential Academic Program, the Center for Humanities and the Arts and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

first_img‘Tek Charge’ – Focus of Safer Sex Week Health & WellnessFebruary 10, 2012 By Jeneva Gordon, JIS PRO Related‘Tek Charge’ – Focus of Safer Sex Week Related‘Tek Charge’ – Focus of Safer Sex Week Advertisements Related‘Tek Charge’ – Focus of Safer Sex Week FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Labour and Social Security will be observing Safer Sex Week from February 12 to 18, 2012, under the theme: ‘Tek charge! Condom: check HIV Test: check Less Partners: check’. Programmes Manager for HIV at the Ministry, Peta-Gay Pryce, informs JIS News that the week’s activities is geared towards sensitising  persons about  the importance of taking charge of their sex lives, by using a condom, getting an HIV Test, and also reducing the number of partners. The week of activities commences on Monday (February 13), with a sensitisation exercise at the Ministry. Miss Pryce said this activity will assist employees to understand the importance of practising safe sex, as the best responsible action against HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). “Throughout the week, representatives from the Ministry will be engaged in a series of telephone and radio interviews, as well as discussions to promote safe sex,” she said. On Thursday (February 16), the Ministry will be staging an Awards Ceremony at its Head Office, in recognition of last year’s HIV in the Workplace Awareness Competition winners. “The competition enabled staff members, trained as peer educators and counsellors, to educate their respective departments about HIV, which were audited based on the criteria that were provided,” she said.  The activities will continue on February 17 with another sensitisation exercise, which involves several private sector companies enrolled in the HIV-Voluntary Compliance Programme (VCP).      “We will be focusing on direct private sector companies which are a part of the VCP, looking at behaviour change. These companies have signed on to the programme, so we will be assisting persons to make their own self assessments in an effort to mange and reduce the risk of transmission,” she informed. The VCP is one of the measures being implemented by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security to get organisations to voluntarily join the International Labour Organisation (ILO) HIV/AIDS Workplace Education Programme, before the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Miss Pryce told JIS News that the Ministry remains committed to sensitising both the public and private sectors about the importance of safe sex practices, to reduce the risk of HIV and other communicable diseases in Jamaica.last_img read more

In June of that year, AT&T said it decided to forgo an appeal of the verdict in favour of negotiating a settlement.
