Make A Will Leave A Legacy
Without A Will, The Government Decides How Your Estate Is Distributed.
Have A Say In Who Gets Your Assets.
A Will is a critical aspect of planning for your family`s future. While immortality is not an option, the subject of death is a common reason many postpone writing a Will. Others believe they are too young, healthy or have little assets. Yet a valid, up-to-date Will prevents exactly what is feared, and provides peace of mind — it legally protects your spouse, children and assets and spells out how your wishes are to be fulfilled. You choose your estate trustee, appoint your children’s guardian, provide for beneficiaries and get to leave a legacy to make a lasting contribution to your community.
By including favourite charities in your Will, you ensure that organizations important to you continue their work to provide great care for their patients, scholarships for deserving students, protect our natural history, cultural institutions and environment, or other activities that support your goals.
People from all walks of life need a Will and can leave a lasting legacy. Whether it’s a home, RRSP/RRIF, life insurance policy, pension income, GIC’s or other assets — almost everyone can choose to leave a legacy with a gift of any amount or a residue of their estate.
