Cottage Succession Planning Seminar

Learn how to “Keep the ‘Family’ in the Family Cottage”

On Saturday, July 27th FOCA (Federation of Ontario Cottagers Associations), in conjunction with KLCOA, is hosting a seminar on Cottage Succession Planning.
The presentation will be from 10am – Noon in the Logging Museum in the Haliburton Forest. The Forest is graciously providing this space for us for free in order to hold this important presentation.

Peter Lillico, an estate planning lawyer, is a frequent speaker on cottage succession planning and has been working with FOCA to deliver a series of seminars to cottagers’ associations around Ontario. According to Peter, “It’s not lack of interest, capital gains tax or other financial pressures that result in most family cottages going up for sale. It’s a consequence of friction within the family that arises from sharing ownership and usage. If your goal is to keep your family in the cottage for future generations, my goal is to help you develop an agreement to secure a lasting and successful succession, avoid family friction and prevent ‘For Sale’ signs sprouting.”

Space is limited so that Peter has an opportunity to answer your questions. KLCOA members are getting a chance to sign up early before other Lake associations are invited. This seminar is free to FOCA and KLOCA members. Non-members will be charged $10 at the door if space is available.
