Purchasing residential real estate needs careful planning

Anyone in Alberta who plans to purchase a home will need to consider various issues before signing a sales agreement. This is true regardless of whether it involves residential real estate or commercial property. Potential buyers need to plan ahead and focus on some essential steps.

Why would you include a trust in your estate planning?

Many people in Alberta might avoid thoughts about their mortality. However, the sooner they realize that death is not negotiable and debilitating injuries or illnesses can happen at any time, the better they could plan for such occurrences. Essential estate planning can be done as soon as a person starts to earn an income and acquire assets, and it can then be modified along with the twists and turns of life.

Critical factors to consider before buying a business

In addition to price, other critical questions need to be asked before purchasing an existing enterprise. Entrepreneurs in Alberta who are first-time business buyers might focus on the price alone, not realizing that other important factors must be considered to improve the chances of success. The first question would be for the purchaser to determine how much in personal funds he or she is willing to commit to secure the deal.

Civil litigation might follow feeding a child cannabis brownies

Along with the legalization of marijuana in Canada, including Alberta, come risks that might need careful consideration. Civil litigation might result from a variety of possible circumstances involving cannabis. It must not be forgotten that marijuana is a drug, and although it has medicinal qualities, it could be harmful. Precautions must be taken not only for the welfare of cannabis users but also to protect children who might be offered marijuana containing candy or other edibles.

Amended law aims to address hostile work environments

Employees in Alberta might find comfort in the fact that the Canadian government passed an act that will amend the harassment and violence section of the Canada Labour Code. The aim is to eliminate hostile work environments and to instill a zero tolerance for violence, harassment and any measure of unacceptable behaviour. Authorities say training on all levels of an organization is needed to bring about the culture change that is required to eradicate workplace harassment
