Estate Planning Guide

Community Living Ontario Launches Inspiring Possibilities Estate Planning Guide

Free digital resource geared to families, people who have a disability

Toronto, ON – People who have a disability and their families now have an online, comprehensive toolkit available to them as they consider their financial objectives and obligations. Community Living Ontario launched the Inspiring Possibilities Estate Planning Guide: A Tax, Benefits, Trusts, and Wills Toolkit for Ontarians with Disabilities earlier today.

Written by legal, tax and accounting professionals who specialize in supporting people who have a disability and their loved ones, the 112-page, seven-chapter digital book provides pertinent information on various topics including Will and Trust planning, consent, capacity and legal decision-making, the Ontario Disability Support Program, the Disability Tax Credit and the Registered Disability Savings Plan.

“When writing this book, we wanted to clearly lay out the components of a person’s plan and it’s written in such a way that if families want to read it cover to cover they can, but they don’t necessarily need to do that,” said Brendon Pooran, principal lawyer at PooranLaw Professional Corporation and co-author of the Inspiring Possibilities Estate Planning Guide. “If they want to refer to information specific to a Henson Trust, they can easily look at the index and flip to that page.”

People who want to know their options and when to seek out professional support can visit www.PlanInspiringPossibilities.ca to download a free copy of the guide.

“Planning for the future of a loved one who has a disability can be overwhelming and difficult for families, and this free online resource outlines what to consider when planning an estate and also discusses available community supports, government funding and opportunities for tax savings,” said Chris Beesley, Chief Executive Officer of Community Living Ontario. “The Inspiring Possibilities Estate Planning Guide will assist people to become more knowledgeable about estates and to develop questions prior to meeting with legal, accounting and investment professionals.”

The Law Foundation of Ontario contributed $15,000 towards the development of the online resource.

Brendon Pooran will be presenting an overview of the Inspiring Possibilities Estate Planning Guide and answering questions related to estate planning as part of a series of informative sessions geared to families. The sessions are a part of Community Living Ontario’s Conference and AGM and will take place on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel and Suites in Richmond Hill. The sessions are free to attend, however pre-registration is required and can be accessed by clicking here.

Community Living Ontario is a family-based association assisting people who have an intellectual disability and their families to lead the way in advancing inclusion in their own lives and in their communities. We are a progressive leader in the Developmental Services sector representing more than 12,000 individuals, families, over 100 member organizations and community partners.

Poor Boy’s Luncheon

We wanted to confirm that there will not be a Poor Boy’s Luncheon event this year. Last year we celebrated our 30th anniversary, which is amazing to have an event run as long as this one has. We were informed after the event that our long time major sponsor would no longer be able to support us. The committee members also indicated their desire to step down for various reasons. The decision was then made to discontinue the event. We want to thank our long time sponsor Advocis, Golden Triangle Chapter, the committee members (Ron Orr, Sue Ricketts, Sandy Morrow and Brenda Bowen), the Italian Canadian Club, and everyone else for their support and participation in the Poor Boy’s Luncheons over the past 30 years!
