Protecting you and your family
Estate planning is about protecting you and your family in case of emergency, incapacity, and death. The people, not the assets, are at the centre of estate planning.
Much has changed over the years—new laws regarding taxation, the family, trustee investing, and substitute decision making. Families have changed, too. People define, and redefine, their families – remarriages, common-law relationships, same-sex marriages, single parents, and children born outside of marriage.
Much has not changed—the need for clear thinking and writing; the need to ease the transfer of assets and their management from one person and generation to another.
