Do you want to write for blogTO?

Posted by Derek Flack / March 12, 2014

Now that spring is almost here and construction season is upon us, we're looking to bolster our real estate team. Are you passionate about Toronto's building boom? Do you find yourself losing hours to scrolling through REALTOR listings? Can you spot bad condo design from a mile away? You might be the right person to join our team.

We're looking for two writers, one to post our House of the Week column and another to take on our New in Toronto Real Estate posts. Ideal candidates would be real estate enthusiasts rather than professionals (for risk of various conflicts of interest), but still highly knowledgable about the local real estate scene. If that sounds like you, read on.

Family Day Toronto 2014What's open and closed on Family Day 2014 in Toronto

Family Day takes place this Monday, February 17th and should offer a welcome winter day off, whether plans call for spending the long weekend as a clan or just catching up on sleep. The stat holiday means that banks, schools, libraries, municipal buildings, LCBO and Beer Stores will be closed. The TTC will operate on holiday service schedules with a start time of 6am. Canada Post offices (with exception of some retail outlets) and federal passport offices will be open.

There are plenty of attractions and events planned citywide, though understandably many are geared towards a PG-13 kind of crowd. Movie theatres and skate rinks will be open as per usual but restaurants will be trickier to navigate, most haven't given the day much thought with Winterlicious and Valentine's Day happening in such close proximity.

Here is what's open and closed on Family Day in Toronto for 2014.
