    Last year, in celebration of our firm’s tenth anniversary, we provided a list of the top ten new laws that would be affecting Ontarians.

    With less than one week until Christmas, I thought I would share some tips for managing all of the temptations that may come your way throughout the holidays!

    This month marks nine months since the first COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has substantially impacted small businesses, including those in Toronto who are currently subject to a grey - lockdown period which began on November 23 and was extended until January 21, 2021.

    I have to admit, 2020 has been an unprecedented year narrated by a nerve-racking news cycle full of political strife, civil unrest, and minute-by-minute statistical and medical updates around living through a global pandemic.

    The stock market is down, meaning it’s time to celebrate. You read that right. When the market sinks, it’s time to celebrate that you can score some good buys.

    Around October of last year, a friend of mine who we affectionately call "Flow" went on IG Live and ran through a stream-of-consciousness prediction that the year 2020 would be the year of perspective.

    The recent case Elias Restaurant v Keele Sheppard Plaza Inc., 2020 ONSC 5457 involved a commercial landlord-tenant dispute between a Black owned restaurant tenant and its plaza landlord. The Tenant, Elias Restaurant is owned by a Black married couple and serves African/Caribbean cultural food. It caters primarily, but not exclusively, to a Black community customer base. This use of the premises was completely consistent with the terms of the lease.

    Eliminating your debt pays off in ways you may have never considered. Firstly, there are obvious reasons to crush your debt. Carrying high debt lowers your credit score. This makes it harder to buy big-ticket items such as houses or cars. High-interest rates mean that everything you purchase costs more than you think. That deal you got on a cool new sweater doesn’t sound as good when you add in 19% credit card interest. Plus, the more money you owe, the less you have in your pocket.
