Partner Hayley Peglar was recently published in the April 2023 edition of Cidel’s monthly Trusts & Estates Blog, Wealth Matters – Our Insights, with an article titled “Incapacity Planning: Who Decides When You Cannot?”
The article outlines Ontario’s framework for two key realms of decision making: property and personal care, and emphasizes the importance of seeking legal advice to ensure that your wishes are honoured if you lose capacity to make decisions yourself.
Informed by her estate litigation practice, Hayley’s succinct, informative overview of the major considerations that are involved with incapacity planning is a must-read for anyone who is in the process of building a comprehensive plan for the handling of their estate.
