COVID-19 Update — To assist in our community’s collective effort to combat COVID-19, our physical offices are operating on a restricted basis. Although we are limiting attendance at our office by both firm members and clients, we remain otherwise fully operational and look forward to continuing to provide the highest level of legal services to our clients. Read our full response notice here.

I recently came across a fun article titled “Top 10 Reasons You Should Never Write a Will” written by Tom Deans, PhD, on his blog at willingwisdom.com.  As an estate planning professional, I am forever explaining to people the importance of “putting one’s affairs in order”.  Mr. Deans gets that point across very well, using amusing wit and sarcasm to do so.  I would add one footnote to Mr. Deans’ article.  Reason #8 refers to an “Advance Health Directive” being included in a Will.  In Ontario, this sort of language would be included in a Power of Attorney for Personal Care – but his reasoning certainly applies as to why this important document should also be in place for every adult in Ontario!
