Since it was first published ten years ago, You Can't Take It
has been a trusted source of advice on estate
planning, and it is more relevant today than ever. The Canadian
population is aging, billions of assets are set to be transferred
to the next generation over the coming decade, and estate planning
is quickly becoming the single biggest financial planning issue of
the next ten years for baby boomers and their parents.
Estate planning is everybody's issue. If you don't plan for what
happens to your money, your children, your house and other assets
upon your death, the government will make those decisions for you.
In these turbulent financial times, planning for the future is more
important than ever, especially when it involves the financial
security of those you love.
Completely revised and updated in its fifth edition, this
national bestseller continues to be the definitive resource on the
financial, legal and human issues around estate planning.
