Shoes of memory

Shoes of Memory explores the ceramic work of acclaimed British artist Jenny Stolzenberg. The exhibit will challenge students to examine the issues of representation, identity, individuality, confiscation, and loss as related to the Holocaust.

The 90-minute school program for Grades 8–12 includes a guided tour of the exhibit, and an art or social studies based interactive workshop. Pre-visit materials may be downloaded from the VHEC web site (www.vhec.org) or can be mailed upon request. The package includes background information on the Holocaust, a glossary of terms, and pre- and post-visit activities.

Admission is $50 per class and can be booked through the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre, 604-264-0499, e-mail admin@vhec.org.


Income tax preparation and independent financial planning for union members

Working Enterprises Tax Services Ltd. is union owned and provides personal income tax and financial planning services for union members and their families in all regions of BC.

Rates for income tax preparation are set at 40 to 70% off competitors’ rates. Most members pay a flat fee of only $45 to prepare and electronically file their return. This rate applies to those who have seven or fewer information slips to process. Individuals who have more than seven slips, or more complicated returns, pay a little more.

During the past year, there have been numerous announcements by our federal politicians about changes to the Income Tax Act, starting with the budget speech in February 2005 and continuing through the economic update in November 2005 and of course during the recent federal election.

The changes announced affect all taxpayers with increases to the personal exemption rate and decreases in the base federal tax rate. Other important changes, such as the upcoming change to the dividend tax rate will affect many of you. To make certain you minimize the taxes you pay, make use of the tax and financial planning professionals at Working Enterprises.
