These videos were produced for Will Week by the Winnipeg Foundation. Will Week is an annual initiative providing free estate planning seminars led by professionals working in Wills and estate-planning.

The Winnipeg Foundation in partnership with the Manitoba Bar Association and the Office of the Public Trustee generously donate their time and expertise to present estate planning information sessions, including information on:

  • Why you need a valid, updated Will, an enduring Power of Attorney and a Health Care Directive.
  • How to ensure your last wishes are achievable.
  • How to support the community with a charitable gift in your Will.

The program is a public service and seminars are for information purposes only.
