  • Classic Canadian foods you have to try, and where to find them

    Nov 02, 2018

    Anyone who says there’s no such thing as Canadian Cuisine hasn’t eaten at these places! Timbercreek Communities wants to share some classic Canadian foods you have to try, and where to find them across this great land!

    Interior of Bagel-Shop in Montreal

    Edmonton: Bannock at Native Delights

    Native Delights Aboriginal Cuisine likes to put its own spin on the traditional Native Canadian bread known as Bannock. Their bannock is baked fresh daily and is featured in pretty much everything they serve – from tasty bannock burgers, to hot dogs and tacos, and their signature Native Delights Salad ($7.79). Find out where this fantastic food truck is serving up its specialities, here.

    Calgary: Ginger Beef at the Silver Inn

    The Silver Inn (2702 Centre Street North, Calgary) has a reputation for serving some of the best Peking-style Chinese food since 1975. Back in the day, when Chinese food was a new thing in Calgary, the Crispy Ginger Beef from the Silver Inn was legendary. Sadly, it no longer appears on their menu, but we found the recipe so you can make it at home! You can still enjoy Ginger Beef at Calgary restaurants that specialize in the dish including Ginger Beef Bistro, Ginger Beef Peking House, and Ginger Beef Express.

    Saskatoon: Saskatoon Berry Baked Goods at The Berry Barn

    To feel like a full-fledged Saskatooner, you’ve got to try the Saskatoon Berry treats at The Berry Barn. This farm store (at 830 Valley Road, Saskatoon) features an on-site bakery that serves up an array of fresh-baked treats like Saskatoon Berry Jelly Rolls, Muffins and even Saskatoon Berry Cannolis!

    Winnipeg: Bannock Pizza at Feast

    Feast Cafe Bistro is the place to go in Winnipeg for a traditional twist on a classic Canadian dish. You have to try their Bannock crust pizza! It’s available with red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, smoked bacon and Manitoba grass-fed bison sausage ($10.95), OR white sauce with roasted butternut squash, mozzarella, cheddar, pine nuts, green onion and chipotle sour cream drizzle ($9.25).

    Toronto: Peameal Bacon sandwich at Carousel Bakery

    Historic St Lawrence Market (93 Front St East) in Toronto is a food lover’s paradise. There’s a lot to taste here. Check out the incredible Peameal Bacon Sandwich from the Carousel Bakery stand. This world-famous sandwich has inspired Celebrity Chefs Emeril Lagasse and Bobby Flay to come back for more!

    Ottawa: Beaver Tails at BeaverTails Byward Market

    Pam and Grant Hooker began serving the classic deep fried Canadian pastries known as Beaver Tails back in 1978 at the Killaloe Fair, west of Ottawa. Today, the famous tradition continues at the equally famous ByWard Market (69 George St, Ottawa).

    Montreal: Montreal-style bagels at St Viateur Bagel

    There is nothing like a fresh, Montréal bagel from St Viateur Bagel (263 rue St Viateur). They’ve made bagels the same way since 1957. Their bagels are hand rolled and boiled in honey water, then cooked in a wood-fired oven. They are slightly sweet and chewy when compared to the NYC variety. These bagels are delicious enough to be eaten plain, right out of the oven.

    Halifax: Lobster Roll at Fredie’s Fantastic Fishhouse

    Lobster lovers know a good lobster roll when they taste it. Fredie’s Fantastic Fishhouse (8 Oland Cres, Halifax) makes the lobster rolls of your dreams! Their rolls are homemade and  loaded with luscious chunks of fresh lobster, just the right amount of dressing, and are not full of celery or fillers. Order your roll with chips for just $18.99.

  • Why Montreal is a Great City for Millennials

    Mar 21, 2018

    Montreal is a great city for millennials. If you were born between 1978 and 1994, Timbercreek wants you to know why now is the perfect time to call Montreal home.

    Affordable Rent

    Unlike some of Canada’s other major cities (like Toronto and Vancouver), Montreal boasts quite affordable rental rates. The average rental in Montreal in 2018 costs approximately $950, a stark contrast to a city like Toronto where most one bedrooms go for $1800. Finding a home that works with your budget is easy, and not spending your entire paycheck on your apartment is totally doable. That extra cash comes in handy because the city lacks nothing in terms of great food and entertainment. Boasting a ton of outstanding restaurants, cafes, bars, and events, Montreal is a vibrant city that never sleeps. It’s perfect for millennials who don’t either.

    Great Neighbourhoods

    There are so many great neighbourhoods to call home in Montreal, we could write a whole article on just that! Timbercreek has several residential communities across the city that are ideal for millennials. Our communities are located in some of Montreal’s most sought after neighbourhoods. Our favourites include Mosaique which is located in downtown Montreal in the heart of the entertainment district, near Place d’Armes metro station. It’s an amazing neighbourhood to call home because it is always buzzing with great public events and concerts. It’s also close to beautiful landmarks and architecture like Place d’Armes Square, beautiful Notre Dame Basilica, and colourful Palais de Congres. It’s even a stonesthrow to great shopping and entertainment at Complexe Desjardins. Our community at Le 1436 Mackay, in Ville Marie, is a great home base for young people pursuing their postsecondary and graduate education. It’s located in downtown Montreal, close to McGill and Concordia. It’s also close to great restaurants and cafes, and incredible shopping on Saint-Catherine Street and Sherbrooke Street. Another excellent community for millennials is The Horizon Tower on Avenue des Pins. Located a short walk from beautiful Mount Royal, this property is conveniently located in Montreal’s Golden Square Mile neighbourhood near McGill. The area that boasts great restaurants, art galleries, exciting nightlife and serene nature.

    LGBTQ-Friendly

    Did you know that 20% of millennials identify as LGBTQ? Montreal is incredibly LGBTQ-friendly, making it a great place to call home. The Village, Montreal's gay district, is one of the largest in the world. It’s jam packed with clubs, restaurants and bars. Centrally located between St-Hubert, Ontario, Papineau and René-Lévesque Boulevard, it is right in the heart of the action. Its main street is Saint-Catherine. In the summer the street is transformed into an amazing pedestrian-only area (from June to September). You can’t miss it as it is draped with colourful boughs of balls (pink and rainbow) hung high above the street.

    World Class Education

    Montreal boasts some of Canada’s finest universities and colleges which attract students from around the globe for postsecondary and graduate level education.You can study almost any subject in this amazing city. The most notable institutions includeMcGill UniversityConcordia UniversityUniversité de MontréalUniversité de QuébecÉcole PolytechniqueLaSalle CollegeVanier College, and HEC Montreal

    Music, Nightlife & Festivals

    Montreal is famous for outstanding music, nightlife and festivals. Unlike other Canadian cities that basically hibernate in winter, Montreal loves to party all year long with huge outdoor events like IgloofestMontreal En Lumiere, and Nuit Blanche in the winter, just to name a few.  In warmer months, there’s even more to check out and every weekend packs something fun like Osheaga, the Montreal Jazz FestJFLPiknic ElectronikPride MontrealTaste MTL, and the Montreal Beer Festival.

    Montreal is an amazing city for millennials. Timbercreek hopes this list showed you just how great it is to live in Montreal. For more information aboutTimbercreek Communitiesin Montreal, please visit ourwebsite.

  • 10 Worthy Staycations

    Feb 20, 2018

    Winter is undoubtedly cold and dark, but it can also be beautiful and fun. If you’re taking some time off this season, but can’t afford to travel, it’s time to embrace the staycation. To help you spice up the winter this year, Timbercreek brings you this list of ways to enjoy the season without leaving your postal code.

    iStock-655510490

    Unplug

    To have a really enjoyable and uninterrupted staycation, you need to unplug. Start with your phone, then move on to your laptop and tablet. If you want to do a full digital detox, disconnect from the internet too -- even Netflix. Turn off your phone ringer, set an auto email response, avoid the news, put away your devices, and let go -- you’ll be so glad you did. It’ll all be there when you get back to the grind.

    Movie Marathon

    Star Wars, James Bond, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter! Plan your own movie marathon at home. Get cozy on the couch with a pile of chips, dips, and drinks.

    Eat Out Or In

    A staycation is a great opportunity to eat out and try new restaurants near you. You can make a reservation, get dressed up and paint the town red. Or if you’re feeling cozy, call in for some take out, get delivery from your favourite places, or hit up services like UberEats to discover the best your area has to deliver. Treat yourself this staycation!

    Be a Bookworm

    Pick up a new novel and skip the heavy stuff. No economics or science please. Then kick back, clear your schedule, and dive headlong into storyland. The Huffington Post rounded up their favourite fiction titles of 2017 -- check it out here.

    Get the House Cleaned

    By this we mean for you; not by you. Getting your house cleaned is one of our top 5 best things to do for yourself. Pay a cleaning service to tackle every neglected nook and cranny of your kitchen, closet, and bathroom. It’ll feel like a new home.

    Rearrange

    There may be no better and cheaper way to transform your home, and break from your routine, than rearranging your furniture. It will breath new life into your space and maybe even help you relax.

    Hometown Tourist

    Pick a spot on the map -- a new neighbourhood, a restaurant, bar, or coffee shop you’ve never been to. It doesn’t have to be far, just new. Turn your city into a tourist destination without leaving its borders. You might fall in love with it again!

    Brew

    Brewing your own beer or wine can be really fun. It’s a great activity when you have some spare time at home. There are a few gear essentials to acquire, but with a bit of research, brewing is a great staycation activity.

    Play

    When’s the last time you picked up that guitar or struck a chord on the piano? Pick one new-to-you song, look it up online, and make a one-week goal to play it.

    Cook

    When you don’t have a million things to do, you can challenge yourself to try new things. Skip your standard meals and pick a few semi-difficult recipes to master. Hearty dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon, braised short ribs, or homemade pasta are all comforting winter meals with flare. Find a recipe or a recipe video, pick up or have your ingredients delivered, and get started.

    Timbercreek hopes these tips help you plan the best staycation ever. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • Fun Family Day Ideas

    Feb 13, 2018

    Family Day, a day for the little things, like hanging out with parents and grandparents, playing with your kids, seeing cousins, and otherwise making time for those most important people in your life. It’s also a small miracle during February, the “cruelest” month of the year, when Easter break is still months away. With this in mind, Timbercreek brings you a list of ideas for things to do on Family Day weekend this year.

    Snowsports

    Whether it’s skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing or tobogganing, skating or snowmobiling, there’s a winter activity out there to suit every locale and taste.  And yes, snowman making and snowball fights count too.

    A Walk in the Park

    Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t get outside. Every city in Canada has a quality park (or collection of them) worth strolling through on family day. Lace up your boots, throw on a parka, and get outside.

    See a Movie

    Perhaps #1 in the collective mind for a family day event, going to the movies is the perfect holiday hang. Get a jump on this popular activity by buying tickets online. Click here to find out what’s premiering in February.

    Art for Art’s Sake

    Whether you hate art or love it, galleries are guaranteed at the very least to be cool buildings to explore. They generally boast interesting architecture, history, art, fun and often free activities for kids, and a restaurant or cafe where you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    Concert

    While tricky to find genres and bands that satisfy the entire family’s musical tastes, a concert is a great way to enjoy some culture with the family. The symphony, an opera, or a ballet performance are also good options.

    See a Play

    From indie theatre to Fringe festivals, musicals to mainstage productions, a theatrical performance can be a fun way to spend an afternoon on family day.

    Movie Marathon

    Whether you’re a Trekkie, prefer The Wars, love the Matrix, or Finding Nemo, a movie trilogy is a killer way to entertain the entire family in one room.

    Family Cook-a-thon

    From smoking to grilling, braising to brining, there’s nothing more satisfying, time consuming, or fun for the whole family than cooking. Don’t just pick something easy -- explore slow cooking, making something from scratch, baking, or a new-to-you cuisine.

    Do Absolutely Nothing

    Family Day is a great opportunity to rest, enjoy the little things, and spend some time together. You don’t have to do anything special to make the most of the long weekend. Sometimes a quiet chill-out day is all it takes.

    Timbercreek hopes that this article gives you some ideas for how to spend your Family Day this year. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
