Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving on October 11 and Americans celebrate this Thursday, November 25. Much of our daily work involves direct interaction with Americans, so this is a relatively quiet week for we Canadians. So, what do we do when it is so quiet? We catch up on work that we haven’t been able to get to, read or take education, and most importantly we have team based events to celebrate the amazing people we get to work with on a daily basis.
