All About Estates


The current transfer of wealth from one generation to the next is unprecedented.  Estate planning has become more urgent and complex and estate litigation is all too common.  People are also living longer and elder care is now a pressing and inescapable issue for many individuals and families.  While there is an abundance of information about estates, trusts and elder issues available on the internet and elsewhere, this information is often confusing,  unreliable, or not applicable in Ontario.

All About Estates is a collaborative blog that brings together lawyers, accountants, trust officers, and social workers to provide you with current and accurate information about estates, trusts, tax, litigation, guardianship and elder care.  Each weekday a different blogger from a different organization will write an entry.  The content will be short, easy to read, and eclectic. The entries will not provide legal or other advice, but will raise issues that you can further explore on your own or in conjunction with the blogger.  The hope and goal is to provide you with a smorgasbord of ideas, trends, comments, and tidbits on interesting and diverse topics that the busy professional or sophisticated client may find worthwhile and/or useful.
