Oct. 2 — Joint Ownership: the Good, the Bad, & the Risky

Joint ownership of bank accounts, real estate property, and vehicles is common for spouses. What can happen when a parent and child own property jointly? Learn about recent court cases that raise new cautions about joint ownership. Joint ownership is NOT a substitute for planning in case of incapacity or end-of-life.

Oct. 16 — Dying Without a Will and Tips on Making a Will

Some people are considered not capable of making a Will due to the legal requirements. This may be someone with a disability from birth or someone who delayed making a Will and now has advanced dementia. How is their estate settled? For the majority who can make a Will, get some tips and resources.

Oct. 23 — Consent to Health Care & Facility Care

Consent underlies many of our day-to-day interactions. Consent is also fundamental to encounters with the health care and residential care systems. What are the consent rights of patients? What are the rights of representatives if authorized to give consent for health and personal care by a Representation Agreement?

Oct. 30 — The Planning Continuum: a Will is NOT Enough! Learn about the essential legal documents in BC for those who want to plan for incapacity, for end-of-life, and for after death. We will discuss Representation Agreements, Enduring Powers of Attorney, and Wills.
