Inspiring Possibilities

Speakers' Bureau Profiles
We have nine members on our 2020 Speakers' Bureau. They all bring different experiences in their roles as self-advocates. The Speakers' Bureau is available to speak at small and large groups and can accommodate any time commitments. Learn more about our speakers and why they joined the Speakers' Bureau. Take me to the Speakers' Bureau page.

Updated Estate Planning Guides Available
Community Living Ontario has released new estate planning guides, in English and French. The guides are a toolkit for tax, benefits, trusts and wills for Ontarians with disabilities. The guides cover a number of features including will planning (what a will does and who should make one), estate division (what to give and how to give it), custody and guardianship, pension plans, social media and online accounts, second marriages, pets and more. The guide does have a focus on people with disabilities, but it is a good review for anyone when it comes to will and estate planning. You can download the guides here:
