What it means to be an Executor*,
Trustee or Power of Attorney
A three-part educational series
Have you ever been asked by a friend or a family member to be their executor, power of attorney (“POA”) or trustee? If you have, you are not alone! 33% of Canadians will one day find themselves faced with one of these roles. It can be perceived as an honor to be chosen for such a job: you are trustworthy, honest, reliable, hardworking and most of all have the time, knowledge and ability to carry out these duties and responsibilities. Sound daunting? Well it should!
Acting as or choosing your executor, POA or trustee is a very big responsibility. These “jobs”, as we call them, require time, effort and come with responsibility and personal liability. Regretfully, many people do not realize the scope or time it takes to do this work and can find themselves stuck or in trouble if they do not complete it correctly.
Join us in the month of November as we focus on these important roles and what it means to be a “fiduciary”, what the tasks entail, and how to ensure you do it right or get the help and support you need to avoid many of the traps and pitfalls.
