The purpose of AbovetheTreeline.ca is to help northerners find creative ways to save & make money while living in the Canadian Arctic. By sharing money-saving ideas, frugal northern living tips, deals, product reviews, recipes for healthy & affordable foods, encouragement, inspiration and more, we hope to help inspire and equip you to stretch your northern dollar— and to enjoy the process along the way!

There are a number of costs associated with running a blog — domain, web hosting, tech help, graphic art work, internet usage, and more. To help the website expand and to assist with covering the cost of running the site, I at times use paid advertising on my blog’s sidebar and affiliate links in posts where they are available. By clicking on the affiliate links you are helping support the success and future of this blog (Thank you!) and I will earn a very small commission for items purchased through affiliate links, at no extra cost to you…in some cases you may even save money by using one of my links.

Please be assured that I only provide you with links and content that I think you will love or that I use myself and feel confident to share. Some product reviews are based on items I have purchased myself at full price and others are ones I have received at no cost in exchange for an honest review of the product. In all cases, my thoughts and opinions expressed are my own and are based on my own personal experience and preference. Your experiences with the products may vary and should there be any problems you should contact the company/manufacturer directly to resolve any issues. I do try my best to only share products that I feel add great value and reserve the right to refuse any products or services that I feel are not a great fit for our readers.

Any reference to prices, product claims, or other representation of a product or service are the accurate and researched information to the best of my knowledge at the time of the writing. Company products, policy’s, prices, and services may change at any time without notice so please refer to the company or manufacturer in question to confirm the most up to date information in the event of a change. Feel free to notify us of such changes so we can update our website information as well. We strive to keep the most up to date information available, but realize that each company reserves the right to make changes without notification.

We appreciate hearing feedback from our readers and encourage you to share your thoughts by letters, emails, blog comments, or social media. Unless requested otherwise, feedback directed toward us may be shared in part with our readers (quotations would include first name only and no personal information). We reserve the right to edit or delete any comments that are deemed to be spam, questionable spam, contain profanity, or include comments that are offensive or do not contribute to the conversation in a peaceful manner. We want our conversations to be encouraging and inspiring and we know that we have much to learn from your experiences in the north as well, so we welcome a community mindset of helping and sharing with each other. Thats one of the things that makes Northerners so great; when they are willing to share and help educate others!
