Act FAST on Stroke

Learn the signs of stroke

From Heart and Stroke Foundatiom of Canada :


If you or someone with you experiences any of these signs, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately. Acting quickly can improve your survival and recovery.

Do not drive yourself or the person having a stroke to the hospital – an ambulance will get you to the best hospital for stroke care.

What to expect at the hospital
The paramedics will take you to the closest hospital with a specialized program for stroke care. They can call ahead so hospital staff are prepared for your arrival.

You should receive medical attention soon after you arrive. If you don’t, let the emergency department staff know.

Provide detailed medical history and information about past medical conditions if possible. Knowing the exact time that the stroke signs began is helpful.

A brain scan should be done soon after you arrive, to find out the kind of stroke you experienced. If the stroke was caused by a blood clot, you may benefit from a drug called tPA. It can re-open blocked arteries whichreduces the severity of the stroke, helping you recover more fully. tPA must be given as soon as possible and within four and a half hours from the start of symptoms.

What a stroke looks like
The first time Stacey Yepes had a stroke, she immediately went to the emergency department. Having no visible symptoms and being in good health, she was told it was stress. Within a few days, she had two more strokes. The third time, when she felt her left side going numb, she grabbed her phone and hit record, so that she could show doctors exactly what she was experiencing.

What you need to know about “mini-stroke” or TIA (transient ischemic attack)
Transient ischemic attack (TIA), or “mini-stroke” happens when a clot stops blood from flowing to the brain for a short time. TIA is a medical emergency. Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency immediately. If you are not admitted to a hospital, ask when you will be seen at a stroke clinic and how that is arranged.

Everyone needs to know the signs of stroke.

You never know when you, a parent, a spouse or a friend, might experience the signs and it will be up to you to act. Help your community learn the signs of stroke. Print this page, and post it to your refrigerator, or put it up at work.

Why a new campaign?
Despite the effectiveness of earlier stroke signs campaigns which resulted in stroke patients getting to hospital in time, there are still too many Canadians who don’t recognize the signs, nor know what to do when they see them.

The adoption of “FAST” is the result of a comprehensive process that included a review of international best practices for signs of stroke campaigns, and the help of experts in from the fields of neurology, psychology and marketing. In addition, many countries around the world who have been using FAST are seeing positive outcomes.

Please share the new campaign as widely as possible with family, friends, colleagues and coworkers, and help anyone experiencing or witnessing a stroke to recognize the signs and act FAST.

What is the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa?

It is a long-term, multiple-entry visa for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens.

The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa (Super Visa) is a temporary resident permit that allows parents and grandparents to stay for up to 2 years in Canada per visit. It is valid for up to 10 years.

A regular multiple-entry visa is also valid for up to 10 years, but only allows stays of up to 6 months per visit.


Who is eligible for this visa?

This visa is for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens.

The parent or grandparent must be considered admissible to Canada and meet other conditions.

For example, applicants need a letter of financial support from their child or grandchild in Canada, who meets the minimum required income.

Applicants also need to purchase and show proof of Canadian medical insurancethat meets the minimum requirements and covers them for at least 1 year.

The process is different if the parent or grandparent is from a country where a visa is required to enter Canada as a visitor.

How can my family members apply?

Visit IRCC’s website for more information on how to apply for a Super Visa.

What if my parents or grandparents want to stay permanently in Canada?

They can apply for permanent residence outside Canada.

Important Note: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has stopped accepting applications for the Parent and Grandparent (PGP) program; they have reached the 2016 cap.

NEWS Release from Ontario Government

Balanced Plan Will Build Ontario Up and Help People in Their Everyday Lives

As part of its balanced plan to build Ontario up and help people in their everyday lives, the Ontario government intends to introduce legislation that, if passed, would rebate an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on residential, farm and small business electricity bills as of January 1, 2017. Rural electricity ratepayers would receive additional relief and commercial, institutional and industrial ratepayers would also benefit from lower electricity costs.

The government also announced that it will create an additional 100,000 licensed infant to preschool child care spaces within the next five years, starting in 2017.

The government’s plan was outlined in the Speech from the Throne delivered today by the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor. The speech opened the second session of the province’s 41st parliament.


The plan will continue to create economic growth and good jobs — the government’s number-one priority. The government will also balance the budget next year, in 2017-18, and Ontario’s debt-to-GDP ratio will decline — a sign of economic strength and fiscal responsibility.

The government’s plan will help people in their everyday lives by:

  • Delivering electricity cost relief through legislation to rebate an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on electricity bills — a saving of about $130 annually for the typical Ontario household; eligible rural ratepayers would receive additional relief, resulting in average savings of about $45 a month or $540 a year. Eligible small businesses would also benefit from the rebate and eligible larger businesses would also benefit from the plan through the expansion of the Industrial Conservation Initiative
  • Starting in 2017, creating an additional 100,000 licensed child care spaces for 0- to 4-year-olds within the next five years, bringing the number of spaces created since 2013 to 156,000 and doubling the current capacity for the 0-4 age group
  • Putting a new emphasis on math skills, expanding experiential learning, implementing free tuition for thousands of low- and middle-income students and encouraging more young people to turn their good ideas into start-up companies
  • Investing in skills training that aligns with the job market of today and tomorrow
  • Continuing to increase nursing care hours to enhance home care, reducing wait times for specialists, and connecting a family doctor or nurse practitioner to every Ontarian who wants one
  • Continuing to make historic infrastructure investments in schools, hospitals, roads, bridges and transit
  • Building a competitive business environment driven by innovative, low-carbon industries, including attracting international investment, continuing to cut red tape and implementing a cap and trade program to help people and businesses fight climate change
  • Continuing to work with its federal and provincial partners to enhance the Canada Pension Plan

The Throne Speech outlines the next steps in the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by making a high-quality college and university education more affordable. The plan is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario’s history and is building a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.


” Ontario’s economy is still in transition, but our recovery is firmly on track. While many are benefiting from the growth we’ve achieved, others have yet to share in Ontario’s resurgence. Our government understands the challenges people face and shares their concerns. With our balanced and proven plan to build Ontario up, we begin this new legislative session focused on economic growth that creates good jobs and committed to delivering real benefits and more inclusive growth that will help more people in their everyday lives.”
– Kathleen Wynne
Premier of Ontario


  • Over the last two years, Ontario’s economy has grown by 6.1 per cent
  • In the first quarter of this year, Ontario’s real GDP growth was higher than that of the United States and all other G7 countries
  • Ontario unemployment this year has reached an eight-year low
  • In September 2014, the Premier’s mandate letters to ministers — 30 in total — were made available to the public for the first time. Mandate letters outline the specific priorities for each member of cabinet and their ministry. The Premier will be releasing new mandate letters to ministers in the coming weeks.


Fashion Meets Culture at CNE

Contributed by Adeye Adane

At 4:59pm I found myself rushing past crowds of people to reach the gates of the CNE. It was the last day of the Canadian National Exhibition, and doors were closing promptly at 5pm. Luckily, I made it just in time. Armed with my camera, and a handful of business cards, I started exploring the exhibition grounds. The last day was especially busy with youth, families, and couples. cne_001-1024x682-1024x682
