farmerGuiding and educating youth is my passion. The challenages that teenagers face in the 21st century, both academic and personal demand our attention. Children need a school environment where they feel at home, can express their concerns, receive guidance and support while contemplating their future path. This is a goal for today's educators. It is a vocation which we, at College Prep International try to establish AND refer to our educational establishment as a "home away from home".

Using CORE to mitigate a Canada Post strike


(English below)

Avez un autre arrêt de travail à l’horizon chez Postes Canada, nous voulons vous rappeler que CORE peut vous aider à minimiser tout dérangement aux activités de votre entreprise en vous offrant les services FedEx et UPS pour la livraison de vos enveloppes et colis. Et si vous êtes en attente d’un paiement, document ou colis important, nous pouvons prendre les dispositions pour la cueillette n’importe où au monde. N’oubliez pas aussi qu’une case postale virtuelle CORE est un moyen sécuritaire et rentable de gérer votre courrier. Appelez-nous ou cliquez pour nous signaler ce que nous pouvons faire pour contribuer à la réussite de votre entreprise.

With (another) Canada Post work stoppage on the horizon, we want to remind you that CORE can help minimize any disruptions to your business by offering FedEx and UPS service to deliver your envelopes and packages.  And if you're waiting for an important payment, document or package, we can arrange pick-up anywhere in the world.  Don't forget as well that a virtual mailbox at CORE is a safe and cost-effective way to manage your mail.  Call or click if there's anything we can do to help you keep your business humming.​

7 reasons you need a mailbox address

We believe a CORE mailbox is an indispensable tool for small businesses as well as for individuals who need more service than Canada Post can provide. Here is how a CORE mailbox can be the most effective and inexpensive way to manage your mail:


1.Door-to-door service

For individuals who have lost or are about to lose their at-home delivery services from Canada Post, CORE offers a convenient and affordable alternative. You can rent a mailbox at CORE (you can use multiple names for that mailbox) and arrange for regular delivery to your home. Cost of this service depends on the volume of mail and the frequency of required delivery. A terrific solution for the disabled or seniors or for anyone who wants to continue receiving their mail at home.

2. Mail Security

Your CORE mailbox is more secure compared to your mailbox at home because Canada Post may leave your mail in an unlocked mailbox that’s easily accessible. The CORE office is protected by locked double doors after business hours as well as by an alarm system

3. Privacy

Another reason why people rent a mailbox is to protect their privacy (especially relevant for women operating a home-based business). With a CORE mailbox, you get a proper mailing address that you can use for selected contacts and transactions.

4. Package reception

No more having to go the post office to collect your packages or waiting at home all day for the FedEx or UPS driver, because CORE accepts all mail and courier deliveries. We’ll even pay collect charges on your behalf. And we’ll hold those packages for you until it’s convenient for you to collect them.

5. Affordable Prices

CORE mailboxes are inexpensive. For a 6 month rental, the fee is $55 or about $10.50 per month (taxes included). For a one-year rental, the fee is $100 or approximately $9.50 per month (taxes included).

6. Permanent Mailing Address

A CORE mailbox is great for people who don’t plan on staying at the same location for an extended period of time. If you’ve ever relocated, you know the pain of changing your mailing address for bills, bank statements, and magazine subscriptions, updating personal information with the government, and emailing friends your new address. It’s very easy to miss updating an important service. A CORE mailbox reduces this problem by eliminating the need to change your mailing address every time you move. Additionally, the fact that mailboxes at CORE have suite numbers rather than P.O. box numbers means a more professional address for your business.

7. Mail Management

For those people who are out-of-town for extended periods of time, a CORE mailbox means we can manage your mail (discarding the junk mail, scanning and e-mailing you important letters, forwarding mail as desired). A great idea for Snowbirds or people living outside Canada who want to retain a Canadian address.

5 Reasons You Need A Business Card

Are business cards obsolete? Some say that in the digital age, yes, business cards have become unnecessary. Yet others still think business cards are a vital part of doing business. What do you think? Here are 5 reasons business cards are still valuable:

  1. It's easier to have a business card with contact information than to try and remember or find something to write it on.
  2. Not everyone lives in the online world. Sure you can tweet or email your information to someone but if they aren't living on the 'net they may never see it.
  3. A business card touches people in a more tangible way than an email. It's a "real" reminder of the encounter and why you want to stay in touch.
  4. People are still conditioned to ask for and expect to receive business cards. It's a socially encouraged activity, "you got a card on you? I'll give you a call . . ."
  5. Business cards are the most inexpensive marketing piece your company will ever purchase.

So there you have it - some great reasons not to give up on the traditional business card. Are you ready to order your business cards? Contact us today for a quote!

Make sure your gifts arrive in time for the holidays!

The holidays are hectic enough already, so after you've checked the last gift off your list make sure it arrives in time to be under the tree! CORE Business Centres are authorized shipping agents for FedEx and UPS, so let's take a quick look at when you need to get us your packages in time.

FedEx Express accepts packages up until Monday, December 22 for delivery before Christmas. Depending on the service and destination, though, you might have to pack it up a little earlier - packages to Asia need to be shipped by Tuesday, December 16. If your package has a long way to go across Canada, you'll need to send it around the same time.

At UPS, the story looks pretty similar, with most holiday deliveries having to be en route by Monday, December 22.

To be even more confident, head over to the CORE Shipping Quote Request form to get the process started, and you can track any package you send with the CORE Tracking Tool.

Happy Holidays!
