Presented by the Gabriola Island Community Fund. Estate planning is necessary to ensure that the people, charities and organizations you cherish most receive the benefit of your estate. Proper tax and estate planning helps reduce taxes, protect wealth, and secure the financial future of your loved ones. If you don’t have a will, you’re not alone. According to a 2014 report for BC Notaries, just 55% of British Columbians have a signed, legally valid and up-to-date will.
A panel of experts will provide free information and answers to your question on tax and estate planning:
Trina Brubaker, Wills & Estates Lawyer;
Colin Duncanson, Private Wealth Advisor;
Doug Johnston, Chartered Professional Accountant.
This workshop is free to attend, but registration is required.
