Aviso Experts Webinar

Cottage and cabin succession

Owning a family cottage or cabin is more than just having a second home. It’s about preserving the legacy and memories that have been passed down from generation to generation. However, along with this joy and nostalgia, there are also various complexities that can come with owning such properties.

Our featured speaker, Doug Carroll, resident tax expert at Aviso Wealth Inc., will guide us through a comprehensive session. In his talk, Doug will outline key topics including capital gains, principal residence planning and trust transfers, helping you navigate these hurdles and protect your family wealth. Through engaging discussions, he will shed light on common challenges, essential goals, and answer questions about cottage & cabin successions.

By participating in this webinar, you’ll gain valuable insights into protecting your family’s legacy. If you resonate with this topic, we encourage you to register today and take the first step towards planning for the next generation.
