Wills

A will allows you to decide, among other things, who will be in charge of distributing your estate, who will be the guardian of your children if your spouse has predeceased you (or if you both die at the same time) at what age your children will get their share of your estate, and who will be the beneficiaries of your estate (subject to relevant legislation).

If you don’t have a will, some of these issues will be decided by legislation, and some by family members who may not agree with each other. The results may not be what you wanted and may cause serious family rifts as well. A will can prevent these problems. The cost is low and the benefit is large. Also, a properly drafted will can reduce taxes paid by your estate in some cases.

Enduring Power of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document in which you appoint someone to make financial and business decisions and sign legal documents for you if you lose mental capacity, although in some cases it can take effect immediately upon signing. This is very helpful in dealing with banking, real estate matters and Canada Revenue Agency, for example. Bear in mind that loss of capacity is not always a function of ageing but could result form an accident or illness.

Personal Directive (Living Will)

This is a document in which you appoint someone (agent) to look after your personal and medical affairs, as opposed to financial affairs if you lose capacity.

Feel free to call me at (403) 948-4949 if you have any questions or to make an appointment.
