Will You Or Won't You?

 

 
It's not a popular conversation to have with a loved one, but it is so very necessary, and at some point in time everyone will need to have one. What is it, you ask? A final will and testament. 
No one really likes to think of the time that they will require it, but for those left behind, it will become an invaluable piece of paper.
A large percentage of Canadians, some statistics say up to two thirds, die without a will. In Alberta, this means that the person dies intestate, and the government controls the disbursal of all property and assets not jointly owned.
Knowing this, Lorraine Popik, Executive Director of the Black Gold Health Foundation, is very concerned for the the young families in our community. "Dying is usually the farthest thing from the minds of young parents with small children." said Lorraine, "But really, they are the ones that need to have a will in place with provisions and directions for their children should something happen to them."
For this reason and many more, the BGHF, in partnership with the Edmonton Community Foundation are hosting a free session on will and estate planning. Held in conjunction with National Will Week, the session will be held at the Leduc Legion on October 4th, from 6:30pm to 8:30 pm. It is first come, first served with limited seating available.
