for the future is an important and ongoing process. The goal behind
estate planning is to protect your assets and to provide for those
who depend on you.
estate planning should consider the type of assets you own, your
family status and number of dependants, your life style and your
health. While reducing tax liability can also be an important consideration,
care must be taken not to lose control of assets for that purpose
alone. Special consideration must be given to assets owned outside
of Canada, and to ownership in active business operations.
