  2. Your email capacity is full, and you do not have room for new email. If you have a Shaw email account, patrons only have room for 1000 MB. Look in the bottom left corner of your email screen and it should indicate the percentage of your inbox that is used.

Yes, you can as it is considered a necessary part of employment. Presently the annual fee is $80 due by May 31st of each year. Find out more at: how to maintain your certification. You will receive an emailed tax receipt for payment.

Yes, you can if you have had continuous medical and dental coverage and have not allowed it to lapse. If you have been under your spouse’s coverage that counts as continuous coverage. You can be on one plan for extended health and a different one for dental, but you must have had continuous coverage.

Once you sign on you have 30 days to change your mind or wait 365 days to change plans. Presently our group coverage choices are Green Shield or Johnson Prestige. A comparison chart between the two plans can be found under Benefits if you scroll down to the bottom.
