Canadian Tire Appointment – Book an Appointment Online (Also Customer Service Numbers)

The Canadian tire logo to highlight subject Canadian Tire appointment.

A lot of people are thinking of booking a Canadian Tire appointment right now. Why? Because it is fall and we know that winter will soon be here in full force. And that means we need to change our tires from summer or all seasons to winter tires. Canadian winters can be pretty cold and ferocious. A winter tire gives us that extra help and protection we need.

As a result, many are going to Canadian tire to change their tires. However, many of us do not want the hassle in going in to a store just to book an appointment. Also, there are others who do not like using the phone to make an appointment. It can be stressful being put on hold or being bounced from one department to another. So does Canadian Tire offer an online booking option? See below.

If you go to their website, they have a section where you can book an online appointment (click here to see). Once here you can select what service you are looking for. You then enter your name and address, phone etc. Also, you will enter the details of your vehicle, your preferred appointment date and any other comments you need to make that are relative to the appointment. Finally, you will submit it by hitting the submit button. The closest store in your area will then contact either to confirm appointment on your selected date or give you some alternative dates. It is easy as that!

Canadian Tire Customer Service Number

However, if you feel more comfortable in calling, you can always call Canadian Tire’s customer support number and they help you get in contact with the right store to make you tire appointment. The number is 1-866-746-7287.


Canadian Tire has a nice online option to book your tire appointment which seems pretty straight forward. This can take a lot of stress of people as they scramble to change their tires because all of us know that winter is coming. And none of us do not want to be caught unprepared when that first big snow dump comes upon us. So let’s all of us prepare because we all know that winter will come. It is a guarantee! Stay safe.

You know we’re cat lovers around here, right? Our crazy boy Milo has gradually turned into quite a gentleman! And as cat lovers, we also know that keeping our cats active is important but oh so difficult to actually accomplish. Once cats are past a few years old, most of them get incredibly lazy – especially if they’re indoor cats.

So this flopping fish toy is a great idea. It has a built in touch sensor and starts flopping all around when your cat goes near it! So cute! It gets rave reviews from other cat owners, too. I am pondering getting this for our lazy boy kitty. Oh and it also makes sound! This should totally captivate even a sluggish, lazy cat.

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension

A picture to denote business owner calculating the canada wage subsidy program for their employees

The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension was just announced today by the prime minister this morning. The news is definitely a relief for the many businesses struggling to stay afloat during this pandemic. How long is the extension for and when does the program end? See below:

What is the Canada Emergency Wage subsidy? Quick Review

Here’s a quick summary from a CBC article today: “The program covers 75 per cent of wages, up to a weekly maximum of $847, for workers at eligible companies and non-profits affected by the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Originally the program went from March 15, 2020 to August 29, 2020. This meant that an employer could collect a 75% wage subsidy on an employee’s wages up to 24 weeks as per the government’s website. For more details on the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Program, please look at my original article regarding this.

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension

As mentioned earlier, the prime minister announced that the government will be extending the program until December 2020. The exact weeks extension and when you can apply for the extension was not announced as of yet. Once further details are given, we will update these details.


As mentioned above, many small businesses will welcome the extension of the program as the economy recovery from the pandemic is slow. Also, with uncertainties surrounding covid-19 such as a potential second wave, many businesses are worried about their future. And any help during this unstable time is good help for sure. Stay safe!
