How to read codes on canned goods

CRA and record keeping
VERY useful information for anyone who has questions about which records they have to keep for tax purposes — and for how long. And what about keeping electronic records? Are they enough if the Canadian Revenue Agency contacts you?
I LOVE Google Calendar. It makes life work for me. I put every scheduled event or appointment in the calendar app and often set reminders that are sent to my phone. Then I KNOW I won’t forget something. You can also colour coordinate your events based on work, personal, kids’ events… so get to it! You’ll love it.
