We all know we need a will. And in these uncertain times, it seems even more essential to have our affairs in order. So, why do two-thirds of Canadians still die without a will, without a plan for passing on their wealth and possessions?

In The Canadian Guide to Will and Estate Planning Canada's bestselling lawyer and accountant team provide you with the insights and authoritative guidance you need to ensure your family and your assets are protected today and tomorrow.

Through practical checklists, real-life examples, answers to frequently-asked questions and a glossary of common terms, Douglas Gray, LL.B., and John Budd, F.C.A., cover it all. In this easy-to-read guide, they provide reliable advice on a myriad of topics including guardianship, powers of attorney, trusts, probate, small and family businesses, charitable giving, tax planning, insurance and much more.

Completely updated to reflect the latest changes in legislation and taxation practices, including changes in the capital gains tax and trust laws, The Canadian Guide to Will and Estate Planning also covers topics such as:

* Selecting retirement residences and nursing homes

* Preparing a will that can't be contested

* Avoiding family feuds and spousal disputes

* Taking advantage of the latest opportunities to reduce the taxes on your estate

Don't let the government be your principal beneficiary - Take the time to plan ahead!
