About Good Times

Good Times, the Canadian Magazine for Successful Retirement, helps you plan for and make the most of this special time of life.

And now, through the Good Times Web site, you can subscribe to the magazine, published 10 times a year. Good Times is a lifestyle magazine with writers who share your concerns, dreams and love of fun.

Our eight-page Your Rights section provides the information you need on estate planning and financial management, plus updates on important subjects such as tax regulations and travel insurance. These articles are written specifically for retirees or those about to retire.

Travel tops the list of things most of us want to do in retirement. Our extensive travel section features articles on dream destinations such as Britain, Europe, Africa and Australia, as well as quick getaways and interesting vacations across Canada and the U.S. Whether you’re interested in active holidays such as a walking tour of France or a gourmet cooking school in Italy, or prefer a leisurely cruise to Alaska or Fiji, our travel writers not only tempt you but tell you what to see and do when you’re there. For Canadian destinations, we help you discover train travel, road trips and wine tours across the country. Some of our recent features highlighted gourmet trails in B.C., a taste tour of the Maritimes, house-boating with grandkids and storm-watching on Vancouver Island. One of our writers even stayed overnight at Québec’s Ice Hotel – you may not want to, but it’s fun to read about her experience.

Good health is key to enjoying the good life and our articles provide advice on staying healthy and fit. good times’ articles also keep you up to date on developments and new treatments for ailments such as arthritis, heart disease and cancer. Being informed helps you direct your own health care. Eating right is important to good health. We provide tips on selecting healthy foods and have recipes for one and two. And to help readers look their best, good times has regular fitness, beauty and fashion articles too. Just as with most stages of life, relationships often change.

Our Living articles explore the challenges, such as “Making New Friends”, “Long-Distance Relationships with Grandkids” and “Living Together Without Marriage After 50.” We also feature retirement role models. good times talks to retirees who are happy and fulfilled -- they travel, get involved in their communities, and have time for golf, genealogy research and family and friends. They retire abroad, start second careers, write memoirs, work out to keep fit … they enjoy life and the good times.
