These vehicles assist staff with the daily maintenance of roads, water, sewer, parks and forestry infrastructure within Niagara.

If you’re buying your first home, or moving into a different one or negotiating a new mortgage, you will probably be asked if you want to purchase mortgage insurance so that your mortgage will get paid in case you or your spouse dies. Many Canadians do buy this insurance, which is typically offered by the mortgage lender. But is mortgage insurance really such a good idea, or is there an alternative?
