Between a pandemic boom in estate planning and support for the charitable sector we are at the peak of charitable bequest potential in the history of Canada. Last year the Canadian Association of Gift Planners piloted a new billion dollar philanthropic estate planning campaign and in 2021 it will launch across the country. Join us for insight into the data collected to inform such a major effort and how estate planners like you are needed to help Canadians plan their legacies here in Northern Alberta. We will also discuss the effect of the Graduated Rate Estate regime on estate planning and philanthropy as well as look at trends forming in in Alberta and across the country as we move out from under the pandemic’s social and economic shadow. We will also share new philanthropic estate education and collaborations with the tax, finance and estate and trust community in philanthropic client service.
