As comprehensive wealth planners, we assist clients with all aspects of their planning be it financial, insurance, tax or estate planning related.  They are all important pieces that need to come together in order to create the goal of achieving peace of mind in retirement.  We often meet people who have made possibly dangerous assumptions about their estate plan, the beneficiary designations they had made unintentionally harmed the inheritance they planned to leave for their children..  It happens more often than you might think.  Another common issue is that their plan doesn't minimize the tax bill their estate is likely to have to pay to the CRA. 

This article from the Globe and Mail written by Joel Schlesinger is a great reminder piece.
