Zip.ca's three movie-distribution methods, by mail, kiosk, and streaming, bring flickering movies into viewers' homes without the hassles of traditional movie rental, the cost of purchasing films to watch, or the inaccuracy of friends reenacting blockbusters with cardboard props. Mail subscribers digitally thumb through Zip.ca's website, selecting titles from more than 82,000 movie and television choices that arrive in mailboxes within a few days. Watched films may be mailed back to Zip.ca, which sends the next flick on the subscriber's list once a movie is returned.

A trip to a nearby movie station lets Zip.ca kiosk users choose from up to 1,000 new, recently released, and classic titles, as well as Blu-ray copies of popular films, all available for rental with an easy selection process and the swipe of a credit card. Those who refuse to leave their house until the earth is in HD may enroll in Zip.ca's streaming plan, whose ever-growing selection of titles may be streamed to one's computer, television, or gaming system.

Hosted by the Arthritis Research Foundation, Power of Movement fundraises for the foundation through yoga sessions held across the country. The event, which raised $10,000 during its inaugural fundraiser and now features 2,000 participants across Canada raising $1.6 million, began in 2005 when Dorna Chee found herself hospitalized after being diagnosed with lupus. As a yoga instructor, she turned to her breathing exercises to help manage pain and achieve mental calmness during her hospital stay. She experienced substantial benefits, and thought to share them with the world. She pitched an idea for a yoga-based event, with proceeds benefiting the Arthritis Research Foundation. Participants fundraise to support the foundation.and also take a Power of Movement yoga class, which vary by location.
