A message from Jim: Happy New Year!

So another holiday season has come and gone, and he we are in 2017. Twenty seventeen. Can it really be coming up on 20 years since we were all panicking about Y2K?!?

Anyway, I hope you had a safe and happy holiday. We look forward to another exciting year at Renovation Contractor magazine. We’re well underway with work on our February/March issue that includes a number of ways you can improve your business this year, plus a rundown of the top new power tools for 2017.

We’ll also set the date and location for this year’s Renovators’ Roundtable: November 8–10, 2017, once again at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ont. More on that as we get closer to the fall.

And our home and native land is celebrating a major milestone this year: Canada turns 150! Luckily, July 1st falls on a Saturday this year meaning that those of us who don’t get statutory holidays can celebrate.

My sincerest wishes for a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!
