Live webcast! Cottage and cabin succession

Date & Time: Tuesday, May 31, 2022 (two sessions available)
Speaker: Doug Carroll, Tax & Estate Specialist at Aviso Wealth Inc.
Platform: Zoom
Cost: Free!

Session 1: 9am - Register here
Session 2: 12pm - Register here

As we approach the Summer holidays, we look forward to spending quality time at the cottage or cabin with family. For many of us, the family cottage or cabin represents much more than a vacation home: it’s a sacred place filled with cherished memories.

A word to the wise: this strong emotional attachment we feel towards the family cottage or cabin can translate into challenging circumstances if we do not properly plan for its succession.

Join us for a 45-minute webinar where Aviso Wealth Tax & Estate Specialist, Doug Carroll, looks at interpersonal, tax and legal challenges related to cottage and cabin succession. Doug will also offer some insurance options with the goal of helping protect family wealth and preserving family harmony.

We are proud to host this special event in partnership with Aviso Wealth.
