Welcome to our first podcast for our new project launching on January 10, 2017.
We plan to have a series of podcasts (taped telephone interviews) with a wide-range of estate planning experts to help families learn more about estate planning.
To kick off our podcast series, we are pleased that Ontario lawyer, Elaine Blades joins our project to talk about some of the key basics of estate planning.
