June home sales in Toronto just shy of year ago, prices up nearly 12%

first_img Related news Keywords Housing,  Economy,  Coronavirus “We are still in the early days of recovery, but barring any setbacks, we should continue to see stronger market conditions in the second half of 2020 as households look to satisfy their ownership housing needs,” said Lisa Patel, TRREB’s president, in a statement.Home sales plunged earlier this year as the Covid-19 pandemic forced buyers to the sidelines, but they have picked up as businesses have started to reopen.The real estate board said there were 8,701 homes sold in June, down 1.4% compared with the same month last year.On a seasonally adjusted basis, sales in June were up 84% compared with May.The average selling price was $930,869, up 11.9% compared with June 2019.Patel is optimistic about the real estate market rebounding further from Covid-19“Before the onset of Covid-19, there was a great deal of pent-up demand in the market,” she said.“This pent-up demand arguably increased further over the past three months.”Bank of Montreal economist Priscilla Thiagamoorthy took the TRREB numbers as a sign that the Toronto housing market is roaring back to life.“Low interest rates and thin inventories combined with still-strong demand should lead to higher prices as Covid-related restrictions continue to ease,” she said in an note she sent to investors on Tuesday.Across the entire region, TRREB said there were just over 16,150 new listings, a 2.1% increase from last year.However, active listings through TRREB were down at the end of June by 28.8% compared to the prior year.Growth in new listings will need to outstrip growth in sales for a number of months before active listings approach last year’s levels, TRREB said.The organization’s chief executive John DiMichele believes it will be important to closely monitor such conditions as the Covid-19 recovery progresses.“Policy makers should proceed cautiously with any demand-side stimulus,” he said in a statement.“The persistent lack of listing inventory in the GTA understandably took a back seat to Covid-related issues in the short term, but supply should once again be top-of-mind once the recovery takes hold, in order to ensure long-term affordability in the GTA.” Greater Toronto Area home sales are rebounding from the Covid-19 pandemic and prices are on the rise, but completed transactions are still short of where they were last year, the area’s real estate board reported Tuesday.The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board said Tuesday that the number of homes sold in the region in June was just shy of the mark set a year ago as the average selling price rose nearly 12% compared with June 2019.

Wealthsimple raising $750 million in latest financing deal, valuation hits $5 billion

first_img One in five Canadian investors plans to switch wealth providers: EY study TD getting new head of private wealth, financial planning Horn speaker for public relations sign symbol, vintage color - sun with blue sky 123RF Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Providing funding and inspiration for Black entrepreneurs Canadian Press Keywords Robo-advisors,  Wealth management,  Venture capitalCompanies Wealthsimple Inc. A new financing deal involving plenty of star power and venture capital investors has pushed Wealthsimple’s valuation to $5 billion and has its CEO anxious to build the brand even further.The Toronto-based financial services business announced Monday that it has raised $750 million from six celebrities and more than 15 venture capital investment firms including Meritech, Greylock, Dragoneer and iNovia. Related news The star-studded list of investors includes rapper Drake, actors Ryan Reynolds and Michael J. Fox, NBA players Kelly Olynyk and Dwight Powell and NHL all-star Patrick Marleau.“It’s incredibly exciting and feels great, but I am notoriously a bad person at celebrating things, so I’m already thinking about what’s next and where we have got to go,” Wealthsimple co-founder and CEO Mike Katchen said hours after announcing the financing.He plans to use the new cash to expand Wealthsimple’s market position, build out its offering of products and grow its team.Wealthsimple, which began as an online investment manager in 2014, has grown to add Wealthsimple Trade, a commission-free stock trading platform, and Wealthsimple Crypto, which allows users to buy, sell and hold cryptocurrency assets.It also launched Wealthsimple Cash, a peer-to-peer money transfer app, earlier this year and offers automated investing, saving and tax filing products.“We are really trying to become the full-service financial partner, the primary financial relationship in our clients lives,” Katchen said.“We’ve come a long way and we’re offering a pretty big breadth of services to get there, but we have still got a long way to go to the services we offer.”Part of that long way to go, he said, will include broadening Wealthsimple’s suite of services again and exploring how its current offerings can provide even more value to customers.Katchen admitted that he has his eye on an initial public offering, too.He feels it’s the best way to build a lasting brand, but said “it’s just a question of timing.”“We want to focus on executing our plan and many of those short-term questions that get introduced when you’re going public can be a distraction,” he said.“We’re just not going to deal with that for the time being, but it is for sure in the plan still.”For now, Katchen has big decisions to make around deploying his new war chest and a pandemic still to navigate.While many businesses have struggled during the crisis and had to turn to layoffs, closures and even bankruptcies, the pandemic boosted Wealthsimple.Katchen noticed people increasing the attention they paid to their finances and many were able to save larger-than-expected amounts of cash they wanted to invest or collect compounded interest on.He said it sparked “unprecedented” levels of activity in Wealthsimple’s trading and cryptocurrency businesses.“I never would have guessed that COVID would have this remarkable tailwind for the investment industry,” Katchen said.To address those demands, the company scaled as much as it could, while also trying to educate consumers about financial tools.Education has long been a cornerstone for Wealthsimple, which has marketed itself as an easy-to-understand investment company operating a website peppered with explainers for investing newcomers.Katchen believes that ethos and branding helped Wealthsimple hook celebrity investors.“When we were introduced to them to talk about this investment opportunity, they already had some affinity for the company,” he said.“I think they love seeing a Canadian company be successful, all of them are Canadian, and so there was just an easy conversation to bring them on board.”It wasn’t Wealthsimple’s first time raising big bucks. The company snagged $114 million from TCV, Greylock and Meritech at a $1.5 billion post-money valuation last October.The last time Meritech and Greylock co-led a funding round was the Facebook Series B in 2006, Wealthsimple said.“We invest in companies with the potential to revolutionize industries and become enduring market leaders,” said Meritech’s general partner Max Motschwiller, in a release.“Wealthsimple has been able to capture a generation of financial consumers in Canada with financial products that are markedly different than anything offered by the incumbents _ simpler, more human, and built with the kind of technology that delivers an experience consumers want.”Meritech has also invested in Salesforce, Nextdoor, Zulily and Lime, while Greylock has backed Airbnb, LinkedIn, Coinbase and Discord.last_img read more

Government to Implement Strong Measures to Deal With Crime and Violence in Schools

first_imgGovernment to Implement Strong Measures to Deal With Crime and Violence in Schools UncategorizedNovember 24, 2008 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Education, working with the support of the Ministry of National Security and the police, are examining alternative ways to provide education for dysfunctional children whose behaviour is considered to be disruptive and dangerous to the school environment.Addressing a meeting of principals, vice principals and senior education officers, from across the island, at Jamaica House this afternoon, (Nov 21) Prime Minister Bruce Golding, said this might call for new legislation and changes to the Ministry of Education’s code to empower school administrators to have more authority within their institutions.The meeting heard expressions of serious concern by the principals about the increasing incidents of crime and fear among the student population. They also put forward a number of proposals to address their concerns.Responding to the issues raised, the Minister of Education, Andrew Holness, said the Government will be creating a post of Dean of Discipline, and will continue the fencing of schools to make the schools safer. The creation of safe zones for schools and the difficulties some schools were having with vending and other activities that compromise the safety of these institutions, were also addressed. Prime Minister Golding has given a commitment to discuss with mayors, the need to regulate vending in school zones.Commissioner of Police, Rear Admiral Hardley Lewin, told the meeting of the immediate and medium term initiatives being put in place by the police. These include an increase in the number of District Constables to be Resource Officers for schools, increase in mobile patrols in and around schools and transport centres. The District Constables are to be outfitted in special uniforms, for easy identification as School Resource Officers. The police will be working closely with school administrators to tighten security measures in schools and streets where children are vulnerable.The Prime Minister noted that the police are revamping and implementing new ways to fight crime, based on the new challenges facing the society.

Gun sales spiked in 2020 amid pandemic, social justice protests

first_imgGun sales spiked in 2020 amid pandemic, social justice protests Amid the protests and turbulence of 2020, Americans set a new record for gun purchases, with the FBI tallying a new high of 21 million background checks over the year. That was an increase of 26% over the 2016 record of 15.7 million.Researchers from four major U.S. universities, including Northwestern University, surveyed approximately 25,000 people between Dec. 16, 2020, and Jan. 11, 2021, and found nearly 9,000 Americans said they bought guns in 2020. The researchers then asked about why they bought them. Gun sales were especially high in March when the pandemic and lockdowns became widespread and in June at the peak of the Black Lives Matter protests.“These events generated feelings of uncertainty and threat, and Americans apparently felt some security in buying guns,” said IPR political scientist James Druckman, the Payson S. Wild Professor of Political Science and Institute for Policy Research associate director.Druckman is part of a university research consortium of scholars from Northwestern, Harvard, Northeastern and Rutgers that is tracking Americans’ attitudes on COVID-19.Other key findings include:People who attended protests against police violence or rallies in support of President Trump were much more likely to buy guns than everyone else.As in past years, crime remained the biggest reason for gun buying, but nearly a third of respondents cited COVID-19, lockdowns, the election or protection against the government.Republicans were more than twice as likely as Democrats to buy a gun.Existing gun-owners who became ill with COVID-19 were more likely to buy additional guns than non-infected gun-owners.Whites bought more guns overall, but Blacks were more likely to become new gun-owners. Protesters were approximately between two and four times more likely to buy a gun than those who did not protest. For those who attended a protest against police violence or racism, 13% bought a gun. The percentage increased to 23% for those attending a rally to support former President Trump or to protest election fairness or COVID-19 restrictions.However, 5% of all American adults protested which cannot account for all of the increase. Additional drivers of gun buying, according to Druckman, were likely the pandemic itself and fears due to the protests.Respondents could select up to eight reasons to explain why they made gun purchases in 2020. The most common were reasons regularly cited in past years: to protect them from crime (70%), go target shooting (35%) or hunt (25%).But specific 2020 events also drove gun purchases, with 16% citing COVID-19 lockdowns, 15% saying they wanted protection from the government and 14% pointing to the 2020 presidential election. In examining some of these reasons, the researchers found interesting takeaways, such as among the 16% who selected COVID-19 lockdowns, more than half of them (56%) had attended a Trump rally.Differences Between First-Time and Existing Gun OwnersWhile the majority of gun purchases were made by existing gun owners, 24% of purchases were made by first-time gun owners. Examining demographic differences between those who bought a gun for the first time and those who were already gun owners, revealed key differences.“The new gun buyers were those who were particularly worried about national events and thus in many ways did not fit common demographics of gun owners,” Druckman said.Respondents who reported extreme stress were nearly three times as likely to become a gun owner than those who reported no stress.Americans who made more than $200,000 per year were twice as likely to become a first-time gun owner than those making less than $15,000.While 66% of gun owners overall are white, new gun owners were 1.7 times more likely to be Black.More than a third (36%) of existing gun owners who got COVID-19 bought more guns, compared with only 2% of those who got COVID-19 and did not own a gun previously.Republicans (14%) were more likely than Democrats (6%) to buy a gun.Younger Americans, 18-44 years old, (21%) bought more guns than older Americans aged 45 and older (13%).Read the complete report here. /Public Release.

Geneva Motor Show cancelled for 2021, too

first_img See More Videos The foundation behind the Geneva Motor Show called off plans to resume Switzerland’s largest public event next year after a majority of exhibitors said they probably wouldn’t participate.The decision puts to rest a controversy that ensued after organizers were offered about 11 million Swiss francs (US$11.6 million) in state aid on the condition that the show resume for 2021. The foundation that runs the show said in a statement that it will instead sell the rights to the show to Palexpo SA, the exhibition center that hosts the event.“The automotive sector is currently going through a difficult phase, and exhibitors need time to recover from the effects of the pandemic,” the foundation said Monday. The organizers added that it is “far from certain” that the public health situation in March will allow for an event to be held that attracts 600,000 visitors and 10,000 journalists.

UEFA has postponed the Euro 2020 soccer championships to next year, while the International Olympic Committee has pushed the Tokyo games back to 2021.The Geneva car show foundation has been seeking financing from banks and investors to survive, its director Sandro Mesquita told the Swiss newspaper L’Agefi earlier this month. Failure to do so could result in the whole event company being put up for sale, he said. Executives from the world’s major carmakers, including Volkswagen and Toyota, usually attend the Geneva show, which was first staged in 1905.

CU-Cal game ushers in Pac-12 era of ‘safety, hospitality and sportsmanship’

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Categories:AthleticsCampus Community Published: Sept. 7, 2011 center_img The University of Colorado Buffaloes vs. Cal-Berkeley Bears football game at Folsom Field on Sept. 10 is technically a nonconference game, but most in the campus community recognize that it’s the beginning of a new era.”The Pac-12 century has begun,” said CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano.With CU’s inaugural season in the Pac-12 conference, DiStefano, CU Athletic Director Mike Bohn and CU Police Chief Joe Roy are asking fans to “stand Shoulder to Shoulder to offer the best gameday experience among all schools in our new conference,” said DiStefano.”We want to be great hosts to our new friends from Cal, set a new standard of hospitality and sportsmanship that is unparalleled and support the Buffs with the class and courtesy our new conference embodies,” said DiStefano.In honor of the anniversary of 9/11, CU will be honoring First Responders at Saturday’s game. During the pregame ceremony, First Responders will be invited to the north end zone for a video tribute, a moment of silence and the playing of the national anthem.Folsom Field will open at noon and the game will begin at 1:30 p.m.The security and safety protocols this year follow the model for all home games established in recent years. Fans are reminded that violations of banned substances and materials, or disruptive and unruly behavior, could result in fans being ejected from the game, according to CU Police officials.Banned materials include alcoholic beverages, cans, glass bottles, gallon thermoses, ice chests of any size and liquid containers that are a gallon or more in size. Fans may bring only one non-disposable container no larger than two liters — or one-half gallon — into the stadium.In addition to the ban on alcohol in the stadium, whole fruit, marshmallows and other items that could potentially injure other people if thrown, also are banned.”Our goal is to maintain a safe and enjoyable stadium environment for all of the fans attending the game,” said CU Police Chief Joe Roy. “We’d like everybody to enjoy the game without disturbances and unsafe distractions created by other fans.”Police and security personnel working games at Folsom Field will check for alcohol and other banned articles at all entry gates. Fans are encouraged to dispose of all prohibited items prior to entering the stadium.Visibly intoxicated people will be denied admission to the stadium and people visibly intoxicated inside the stadium will be ejected. Underage persons caught with alcohol also will be ejected and issued summonses for “minor in possession.””In our experience, there has been a correlation between excessive alcohol consumption and dangerous behavior in the stadium and after the game,” Roy said. “We won’t turn a blind eye to alcohol possession or abuse.”CU-Boulder students who are issued alcohol summonses also face judicial action by the university.Fans ejected from a game may be denied access to subsequent games and their tickets may be confiscated, depending on the severity of the infraction. Unruly fans also may be arrested and face criminal prosecution.”We’re excited to be in a conference that embraces class and courtesy as a principle of its brand,” said Bohn. “Our entire institution wants our athletic endeavors to showcase our campus culture and our community. We’re eager to display the pride we get standing Shoulder to Shoulder with our surrounding communities and the fans, businesses and partners who support us.”Bohn urges fans to show good sportsmanship and work together to create a welcoming environment for all fans on game day. Fans also are encouraged to be aware of their gameday behavior, especially around families with children and opposing fans.Fans can report unruly or dangerous behavior by texting CU a brief message and their seat location to 69050.To avoid traffic complications during CU home games, alternative methods of transportation such as biking, carpooling or public transportation are recommended. On game days, RTD’s BuffRide will operate throughout the Denver metro area. Buses begin departing about two and a half hours before kickoff from Park-n-Ride locations.Fans also can park at the Table Mesa Park-n-Ride and take the Buff Shuttle, which will depart continuously from the Park-n-Ride beginning one and half hours before kickoff. Both RTD’s BuffRide and the Buff Shuttle drop off and pick up at Folsom Street and Colorado Avenue. For Park-n-Ride locations and fare information visit www.rtd-denver.com/BuffRide.shtml.Campus-operated Buff Buses also will be available for game attendees who park on CU’s East Campus.CU-Boulder parking permits are honored on game days. Public parking is available on campus for $20 per space; parking lots open on game days four hours before kickoff.Accessible parking for persons with disabilities will be available at the Euclid Avenue Autopark on the main campus. Shuttles will be on hand to transport people between the parking structure, located east of the University Memorial Center, and the stadium before and after the game.RV parking will be available in lot 470, west of the Wolf Law Building on the main campus. RV parking fees are $60, overnight parking is not allowed on campus.
