Resources You Should Know About

Updated Estate Planning Guide
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 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 English Version and French Version of the Estate Planning Guides.
