pharmacyAsk the Pharmacist: Compliance Packaging   
What is Compliance Packaging? 

Billions of people across of the world take medications on a daily basis. Most people are dispensed medication in vials or other formats. Consistently adhering to a medication schedule as prescribed by a doctor, though, may be difficult for some people.

Compliance packaging is an administration aid that usually contains a week's supply of medication that is clearly labeled and organizes a patient's medication schedule into several compartments as prescribed by their doctor.

Is your workforce expanding?

Every employment relationship constitutes a contract, whether it is written or verbal. The hiring of an employee is an exchange for consideration. So the employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee regarding the terms and conditions upon which the employment is based. The employer agrees to provide various forms of compensation in exchange for the services or work that the employee agrees to perform.
 
Retirement Planning can be Challenging

Many Canadians would like to retire earlier and we are living longer. In fact, Statistics Canada estimates the average Canadian will spend about a third of their lifetime in retirement.  
 
How much money will you need to save so you can enjoy a retirement lifestyle of your choosing? That depends on what you estimate you will need to live on each year in retirement. As a general rule, between 50% and 80% of your annual pre-retirement income before taxes is required to maintain your current standard of living during retirement.
