Chronic diseases are at an epidemic level, we are vacation-deprived, sleep-deprived, have no work-life balance, and are constantly being bombarded with information from our devices.  As people strive towards a healthy and positive lifestyle in their everyday lives, it’s only natural that wellness is filtering into vacation lives.

About The Importance of Wellness

The great epidemics of tomorrow are unlikely to resemble those that have previously swept the world. But it is the looming epidemics of heart disease, stroke, cancer, asthma, diabetes, obesity and other chronic diseases that for the foreseeable future will take the greatest toll in deaths, disability and quality of life. It is vitally important that the impending chronic disease pandemic is recognized, understood and acted on urgently.

A Few Facts

    • 2 in 5 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. It is expected that this will rise even more.
    • In 2010, 8.5% of the Canadian population have been diagnoses as having asthma. Prevalence rates of asthma worldwide are rising by 50% every decade
    • 44% is the estimated diabetes prevalence increase in Canada from 2015-2025
    • The proportion of obese Canadians in 2014 now sits at 20.2%, up from just over 15% in 2003.

Conditions of several chronic illnesses including cancers can improve or can even be prevented when changes are made in people’s lifestyles – what you eat, what is around you, how you live and how well you are with yourself.



In January 2016, members of our wellness community used the Presidents Suites – Lumber Baron Home and facilitated a three-day training event called “LIVE LOVE LAUGH”. Our 25 participants enjoyed the Lumber Baron’s luxurious and relaxing setting. This spacious home is designed for comfort and has an extraordinary “retreat” feel. The main meeting room is open, bright and easily accommodated our sizeable group. The workshop breakout rooms are equipped with conference amenities and the smallest of details were given great care and attention. The kitchen facility catered to our open lunch and dinner options. We enjoyed the special touches for our facilitators including receiving the warm, homemade croissants which were gently nestled in a bread basket.   Thank you so much Nicole and Jocelyn were taking such tremendous care of our groups needs and requests. Simply great for wellness stays and retreats.  We are grateful!
