We are very proud to announce that we have donated the required funding needed to provide a brand new deep fryer to mark the grand re-opening of the 447 Wing R.C.A.F.A. (City of Hamilton).
The 447 Wing is located in the village of Mt.Hope and has a long history dating back to the 1960’s.
Service clubs such as these need our help now more than ever so they can continue there good work in the community.
If you would like to support the Wing, please visit there facebook page and consider there drive-thru fish and chip events as well!.
We are very proud to announce that the original painting of Albion Falls illuminated at night is complete and has been delivered to St. Josephs Hospital in Hamilton.
This original masterpiece was commissioned by Chris Ecklund, President and Founder of Canadian Process Serving Inc., to Hamilton artist Lee Munn.
It is a large painting measuring 4 1/2 feet by 6 1/2 feet.
This is a one off original acrylic on canvas, depicting one of Hamilton’s magnificent waterfalls that were lit up at night with The City of Waterfalls volunteers.
Hamilton is the waterfall capitol of the world with over 100 waterfalls in its boundaries.
The painting will be hung on a wall that the public will be able to view, we know it will bring smiles to a lot of people.
We will update this story once it is hung with a picture as well.
The last week we have been happy to help out with arranging bicycles to be picked up, delivered and dropped off, and there are still more on the way from people that want to be involved thank you so much for answering our call!
We purchased these 4 bicycles for the little ones and they are being dropped off this weekend to them.
Knowing that it will bring a smile to their faces brings us a lot of happiness!
This reminds me of when we bought, fixed and repaired about 200 bikes for the Albanian people during the Kosovo crisis last century, that was a lot of fun as well!
One of our process servers in Toronto sent us this report on the challenges of serving documents during the new protocols we are all facing during Covid-19.
“You may already know some of these issues but I just wanted to give you an idea of how services are working in Toronto now as many services take up to 10x longer to complete. Thank you covid….
Most services at a high-rise building now follow 1 of 2 scenarios:
After finding the one and only accessible door to the building you meet security/concierge and may have to undergo a temperature check. You then are directed elsewhere (usually a security or receiving office in the basement at the other end of the complex) to sign in and obtain a contractor card as all elevators are on passcard access only. You then are able to attend the suite for service or at least find out if they are open. Often they are not but are accepting service at a mailroom or sub-office on another floor. This requires you to go all the way back to the sign-in location to get your card authorized for this new floor. Then finally you complete the service and have to again go back to the office to return the card (no cheating, you have to hand over your licence/ID to get a card). Then all the way back to the one door you can exit and off you go. While I tried to make this humourous I am not exaggerating, I have gone through this exact scenario many times.
Once finding access you meet security and are told no floors can be accessed. For all deliveries you must contact the company by phone and have someone come down to meet you. They of course rarely have or “are allowed” to provide these phone numbers. On the phone to google we go to try and track down a number and then pray you get a live person not a voicemail system. Time spent to actually reach someone and then wait for them to come down can be 15-30 minutes or more sometimes.
As for getting around between services that is also longer. Because most buildings have only one entry/exit point I can no longer cut through buildings to get around to other service locations quicker and easier. Even traffic is much more blocked due to the added restaurant expansions and temporary bike and pedestrian areas.
It is what it is and we all have to deal with such things. Just wanted you to be aware if it comes up with clients.
