Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce NEWSLETTERFALL EDITION - 19BenefitsFactsSmart ParentsStudy StudentCoverageIf a student in your family is enrolling outside your homeprovince, make sure you understand how the move willaffect his or her health insurance – under both governmentand private plans. It’s an important issue when our child isstudying in another province. If they’re studying in anothercountry, it’s even more critical because parents’ private plansdo not typically cover students attending foreign schools. Butlet’s look at studying in Canada.Students who move to another province need to confirmwhether their home province coverage will remain in effect.To protect themselves, students should ask if they need aformal extension of government health insurance coveragebefore they leave home.Keeping the provincial coverage intact can be critical to thestudents’ eligibility for any private coverage a parent holds,including employer-sponsored group benefits. Group planstypically require that a provincial plan process any claimbefore the private coverage. If the government plan says thestudent is ineligible, any claim to your group program willlikely be declined as well.Before your student leaves home, you should also take afew minutes to review your group plan’s full eligibilityrequirements for dependent students. Your plan may requirethe child carry a minimum course load to qualify as a full timestudent. And there will certainly be an age beyond whichchildren cannot be covered as dependents, even if they’restill at school. Your group plan may ask you to completean “Overage Dependent” declaration if your dependent isover age 18 or 19. This form confirms the post-secondaryinstitution the child will attend and details such as date ofbirth. This kind of declaration form is routine and ensuresyou and the insurer have a common understanding of thedependent’s eligibility for benefits.Benefit Facts presents information to help you manage youremployee benefits.

20 - FALL EDITIONNEWSLETTERWilliams Lake & District Chamber of CommerceU.S. orders stack up for B.C. lumberForestry executive Steven Hofer has grown accustomedto getting the cold shoulder during sales trips. But ona swing through the U.S. Midwest recently, orders forsoftwood lumber began pouring in.During a visit to St. Louis, managers at wooddistributors and retail lumber yards told him what hehas been waiting years to hear - American consumersare back in the market for new homes and developersare building multi-unit residences again. The patternof healthy orders for lumber repeated itself at otherstops made by Mr. Hofer, vice-president of sales andmarketing for International Forest Products Ltd.The U.S. housing market is finally showing signs ofrecovery after collapsing during the 2008-09 recessionand hurting demand for building materials acrossthe board. Lumber prices should climb sharply inNorth America over the next three to five years, withincreased orders from China, pent-up demand in theUnited States and tight supplies in Canada, said CIBCWorld Markets Inc. analyst Mark Kennedy.The U.S., which is on pace to have 746,000 housingstarts this year, could see 900,000 starts next year, saidMr. Kennedy, who added that if the figure were to riseto 1.4 million annually, lumber prices could surgeabove $400 per 1,000 board feet.Improvements in lumber orders should also appearin repair and renovation of homes. RBC DominionSecurities Inc. estimates that 30 per cent to 40 percent of North American lumber goes into new homes,while 25 per cent to 30 per cent is used to repair andrenovate houses.Demand in Asia, however, will be uneven and whilethe industry can’t expect China’s voracious demand tolast forever, the overall picture remains bright.On the supply side, any increases in lumber productionwill be muted because of the lingering effects frommountain pine beetles decimating forests in BritishColumbia’s Interior, said Kip Fotheringham, seniorvice-president of sales and marketing for VancouverbasedConifex Timber Inc. “The industry just can’tbring back a whole bunch of sawmills quickly. Thewood fibre isn’t there in the B.C. Interior. And Ontarioand Quebec face provincial constraints in the annualallowable cut,” he said.Taken from the Globe and Mail by Brent JangThere has been a broad-based recovery in U.S.residential markets after excess housing inventorygradually got soaked up after the recession. That’sbeen followed by increased buying from oldermembers of the baby boom echo - children born from1980 to 1995, Mr. Kennedy said, adding that demandis climbing in places from Texas to North Dakota, andeven in hard-hit states such Florida and Arizona.Saturday November 24, 2012at the Tourism Discovery CentreTime: 10am – 3pmLimited Space available pre-registrationby Monday November 12 th$25 per Space (Approx. 8 Ft)www.mmmeatsshops.com635 Oliver St., Williams Lake250-305-6861New!Appies!Mini Lobster Pub PiesTeriyaki ChickenMini SkewersJalapeno ShootersFor more information or to register, call theWilliams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce office250-392-5025 or email visitors@telus.netSome of the local products that will be availableinclude alpaca products, souvenir items,wood bowls and pens, home baked goods and jewelry.*Please pass this along to anyone that may beinterested in showing or selling their local product.
