Thu, February 18, 2021 | 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
Every Albertan who is at least 18 years old should have:
- a personal directive
- an enduring power of attorney
- a will
When thinking about estate planning, most people have a general idea about Wills. There are two additional tools that you can use to ensure that your wishes are known and met during your lifetime if you are no longer able to make your own decisions. These are:
- The Personal Directive (PD) appoints an agent to make decisions about your person when you are incapable.
- The Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) appoints an individual to manage your property when you are incapable.
Portage College Public Legal Education Program is pleased to have Holly, Assistant Public Guardian and Lincoln, Senior Trust Officer, Office of the Public Guardian & Trustee – North Region join us share basic information on the legal tools you can prepare now in case you’re unable to make decisions in the future.
Zoom log-in details will be emailed the day before the event. Please check the email you registered with for these instructions.
