Easter Activities for you and your families!


Easter Egg Hunt

Your little ones are sure to love a good-old-fashioned Easter egg hunt, and the best part is that they’re easy to pull off. All you need are the hollow easter eggs and something to fill them with. You can choose to fill them with candy, tiny treats or even coins. Once the eggs are tucked away, it’s time to start the countdown for the hunt.

Decorate an Easter Egg

Decorating Easter eggs has become an absolute staple around this time of year. Whether you choose to purchase a kit or go the DIY Route, there are an abundance of styles and designs for you to choose from that’ll make the perfect seasonal display.

DIY Easter Basket
With all of the eggs your little ones will be collecting and decorating, they’re going to need a place to put them all. Gather some supplies and turn an ordinary basket into something fun and festive. 

Plant Flowers

Easter signals the beginning of the spring season, and what better way to celebrate than by planting a few springtime flowers? You can choose to plant seedlings, and watch them bloom and blossom over the course of the season, or you can plant fresh flowers to immediately add some colour to your garden. 

Four-Cheese Scalloped Potatoes


1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for brushing

1/2 clove garlic

1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup shredded asiago cheese

1/3 cup shredded raclette or comté cheese

2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 cups heavy cream

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

4 fresh bay leaves

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese 

1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F. Generously brush a large skillet with butter, then rub with the garlic. Combine the mozzarella, asiago and raclette in a bowl.
Heat the skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the potatoes, spreading them out. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt, half of the cut-up butter, half of the shredded cheese blend, and pepper to taste. Arrange the remaining potatoes on top. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Pour the cream over the potatoes, then add the nutmeg and bay leaves; simmer 3 minutes. Dot the potatoes with the remaining cut-up butter.
Generously brush a shallow baking dish with butter; slide the potatoes into the dish; arrange with a fork, if desired. (If your skillet is ovenproof, you can skip this step and bake the potatoes in the skillet.)
4. Sprinkle the potatoes with the parmesan and the remaining shredded cheese blend. Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before serving. Discard the bay leaves.

Today’s Bank of Canada rate hold announcement marks almost four straight years that the key benchmark rate has remained unchanged, since September 8, 2010. Great news if you have a variable-rate mortgage or home equity line of credit; the prime rate stays at 3%.


The announcement noted that “the risks to the outlook for inflation remain roughly balanced, while the risks associated with household imbalances have not diminished.” With these considerations, the Bank is maintaining its monetary policy stimulus, and remains neutral with respect to the timing and direction of the next change.


The next rate-setting day is October 22nd.
