It could be the most important document you write.

We are talking about your Will.Wills1701-6inW

Writing a Will may be at the bottom of your to-do list, but financial and legal experts say that laying out your wishes can ensure your money goes where you want and may save your Estate from unnecessary expenses after you are gone. Drawing up a Will is one of the biggest financial planning steps you can take.

When people die without a Will, it is considered intestate (by definition “Having made no will”) and the courts will appoint an executor to administer an estate with the assets distributed according to the rules laid out provincially and not necessarily according to your desired wishes.

For many of us, we would prefer that our estate be distributed to areas important to us such as family members, good friends and charities that we believe in.  If you do not currently have a will or your current will is in need of an update, Island Prostate Centre can help through our affiliation with The Canadian Free Wills Network. The Canadian Free Wills Network will provide a valuable service to our most loyal donors by providing an opportunity to have a simple will prepared free for you if you are 55 years or older, (limited number to be provided in 2017) written at a discount rate through participating lawyers in Victoria and the lower mainland.

Please contact us if you would like to have a simple will written or updated at no cost to you. While there is no obligation that you include Island Prostate Centre in your Will, it is our hope that you will consider doing so, when you have your Will written for you.

Here is how it works:

When you advise us of your interest in accepting this free offer, we will provide your confidential contact information to the Canadian Free Wills Network.  They will contact you directly with a list of the participating lawyers/notaries in your area and you choose whom you wish to assist you with the preparation of your will. You then call the lawyer of your choice from the Network meet and prepare the necessary documents. The lawyer sends us the discounted legal bill and we pay it directly to the Network.  Island Prostate Centre has a limited budget for this program that will run in 2017 for loyal supporters of IPC.
