Title: first aid
Body:

First aid means treating yourself or having someone at work treat you. Some examples are:

  • cleaning minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches
  • treating a minor burn
  • applying bandages, a cold compress, or an ice bag
  • putting on a splint at your workplace

First aid also includes changing a bandage at a follow-up appointment if this does not lead to further treatment.

Title: fixed-term
Topic:
Body:

A fixed-term tenancy is an agreement to rent a place for at least a certain length of time. The agreement is often called a lease, and the length of time is called the term. The most common term is one year, but it can be shorter or longer. When the term is over, the tenancy automatically continues as a month-to-month tenancy unless the landlord and tenant agree to another fixed term, or one of them takes legal steps to end the tenancy.

A foreign national is anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. For example, a refugee claimant, a visitor, or a person in Canada without any immigration status is a foreign national.

Title: fraud
Body:

Fraud is when you lie, cheat, improperly use someone else’s personal information, or break the law to get money or a personal benefit. Committing fraud is a crime.

If you have debts that you owe because of fraud, you cannot get rid of them by filing for bankruptcy. For example, if you lie to a bank about your income to get a credit card and do not pay for what you bought with it, you still have to pay your credit card balance after your bankruptcy has been discharged.
