Once you become a member of House Seats, and pay your subscription fee, you will be able to log on to the site and choose to attend a variety of entertainment events in your community at no additional cost to you.

How does this system work? When you are a member, you will be able to see available events offered by House Seats. These events range from major productions, smaller productions at local venues, award shows, sporting events, to special events and attractions.

You can attend shows when House Seats has tickets available, and only on the dates it has them available. House Seats is NOT a reservation service, rather, partners of House Seats generously provide complimentary tickets to House Seats, which are then passed on to you the members, free of charge (after paying a membership fee to House Seats).

Please keep in mind the listings will vary and change all year long, so check daily to see what, if anything, has come up. House Seats cannot predict when tickets for any particular event or show will become available. You will have to take your chances. You may attend as many FREE events or shows as they become available throughout the year while your membership is in effect. Because the service is so specialized, only active House Seats members will have access to show listings.

Please note for a limited time, House Seats is offering a 10% discount to CARP members, potential members and friends of CARP Chapter 35 (Mississauga). The discount code is: CARP35. Use this code when joining House Seats to get 10% off subscription / membership fee.

For women with osteoporosis, a fall can be fatal. Known as the silent thief, osteoporosis affects one in four Canadian women and one in eight Canadian men over 50. The reality is, it can occur without symptoms, so many women don't even know that they have osteoporosis until a bone breaks.

Falls may lead to fractures, which can rob a women of her independence and ability to carry out day-to-day activities. It is important for the millions of Canadians affected by osteoporosis or those caring for a loved one with osteoporosis to ensure their homes are free from hazards that can lead to falls.

The good news is that osteoporosis CAN be treated effectively and falls can be prevented. Internationally renowned interior designer Kimberley Seldon, bone health expert Dr. Aliya Khan, MD, FRCPC, FACP [Metabolic Bone Disease], Osteoporosis Canada, and CARP will tell you all about the things you can do to design your home to protect your bones, known as Bone Shui By Design.

Striding in style. Walkers find malls a warm place to exercise away from cold and snow. From Toronto Star, News / GTA, by Jim Wilkes Staff Reporter, Published on Tue Mar 08 2011.

Toronto Star photo by Jim Wilkes: "Wally De Los Reyes, 69 (left) and wife Lilia, 64 walk past the Apple store in the nearly deserted Square One shopping centre in Mississauga before shops open. They're mall walkers who beat the crowds to get exercise indoors rather than brave the elements. "
