A big “thank you” to all of you who came out and participated in the Canadian Retirement’s Annual Golf Tournament this year!

It was a beautiful day on Cultus Lake Golf Course, and there were lots of laughs along the way.

The dinner was delicious, and the company was delightful!

The event was a huge success, and we hope to see you all again next year!

Take a look at all the incredible photos of everyone having fun!

Until then, cheers from all of us at Canadian Retirement!

We’ve been experiencing a winter like no other, and after the devastating floods in the Fraser Valley, our local farmers need our help and support like never before. We’ve put together five recipes for cozy comfort foods that use vegetables grown right here in BC during the winter months.

1. Apple-Parsnip Soup

Both apples and parsnips are freshly grown in BC during the winter months. This delicious soup can work as both a starter to a meal, or on its own with some warm crusty bread.

2. Poached Cod with Potatoes and Leeks

Leeks are in season almost all year long, except for spring and early summer. Pair them with some Pacific cod or lingcod, and you’ve got yourself a delicious, balanced winter meal. 

3. Cheesy Cabbage Gratin

If mac and cheese is your go-to comfort food, try switching out the carbs for some BC-grown cabbage in this crazy good cheesy sauce. This is as wintery as food gets!

4. Boeuf Bourguignon

It’s a classic one-pot dinner to impress the whole family, but not just that - this hearty meal can be made with entirely locally produced meat and vegetables.

5. Carrot Cake

Save the best for last with this classic sweet treat. Bake it with BC grown carrots for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea, or as a dessert after any of the dishes above.

We hope these recipes keep you warm and cozy throughout winter, and don’t forget to buy local and support our BC farmers and producers whenever you can.

There's no doubt that pets are blessings in our lives, but when it comes to planning a trip, arranging care for our furry family members can be a real headache. Constantly worrying about where to leave them, what to look for in a pet care service, and how much it will cost, can cause anxiety to mount and the costs to be even higher.
