The Comeback Society
The Comeback Society: How a podcast-turned-non-profit is amplifying Indigenous voices and culture
The Todd family thought they’d seen every kind weather on their 4,500-acre farm – until that fateful day in ’89 when a tornado came ripping through, reshaping the land, and destroying buildings in its wake.
Sharon Clark, Clark Cullen Group
They say when one door closes, another opens – such was the case for Sharon Clark of the Clark Cullen Group in Regina, Saskatchewan. After spending 17 years running her own photography studio, she received an unexpected medical diagnosis that meant she could no longer work as a photographer.
The Saskatoon Farm
When you first step onto The Saskatoon Farm, your senses are greeted by the wide expanse of treed landscapes, gorgeous vistas, and, of course, the smell of freshly baked Saskatoon berry pies.
After three generations of running a maple sugar bush and custom crop farm, the Palmateer family thought they’d seen it all – then COVID-19 hit.
For refrigeration technician Rae Scott, starting a small business wasn’t about striking it rich, it was about making a decent living on his own terms, and creating that same opportunity for his employees.
Meet Steve Crewson, retina surgery recovery coach. For seven years, Steve Crewson dreamed about the possibility taking his web development ‘side business’ to the next level. In 2014, he finally took the plunge and left the security of his Canada Post job to work full-time in his own business.
Canada’s Grocery Store and More
When the Endako Mine closed at the end of 2014, the Village of Fraser Lake lost its biggest employer. About a year later, the only grocery store in the community closed too. With just a convenience store in town, Fraser Lake residents had to drive almost an hour to the nearest supermarket to stock up for the week.
There’s never a dull moment for FBC Member Maggie Gervais. Gervais lives in McLennan, Alberta and volunteers for more than 7 organizations in her community while working part-time at Canada Post. She recently retired from a full-time position at the Government of Alberta, but that hasn’t slowed her down – she volunteers even more of her time.
