    Who's one person you need to reconnect with? We've all had the experience of losing touch with somebody important to us. And often, it's easier to just stay apart rather than reach out. But on this Now or Never, you'll meet Canadians who have taken a risk and reconnected with somebody from their past - from a young man who needs a pep talk from his old high school teacher, to two brothers ripped apart by war, and a woman who wants to thank the lifeguard who saved her life.

    It's not easy pounding the pavement to find a job. It's even harder when something keeps getting in your way. This Now or Never, follow Canadians as they hustle to find employment and find out how they're turning challenges into opportunities. We're featuring true stories as they unfold, including a woman who's using vocal tics to her advantage in job interviews and an ex-con who's petitioning to overhaul the justice system so that he can chase his dream career.

    Passing down your knowledge is important, whether it's teaching your kids how to cook a traditional dish or training potential athletes. When you don't impart your wisdom there can be big consequences. Family recipes are forgotten, languages disappear and legacies are lost. So on this Now or Never, we're on a mission to keep those special talents, skills and stories alive by passing them along.

They're here as part of Bird's Nest, a program that prepares youth for post-secondary education and supports their hockey dreams.
