Aviso Expert Webinar: Cottage and Cabin Succession


As we approach the Summer holidays, we look forward to spending quality time at the cottage or cabin with family. For many of us, the family cottage or cabin represents much more than a vacation home: it’s a sacred place filled with cherished memories.

 A word to the wise: this strong emotional attachment we feel towards the family cottage or cabin can translate into challenging circumstances if we do not properly plan for its succession.

Join us for a 45-minute webinar where Aviso Wealth Tax & Estate Specialist, Doug Carroll, looks at interpersonal, tax and legal challenges related to cottage and cabin succession. Doug will also offer some insurance options with the goal of helping protect family wealth and preserving family harmony.

Date & Time: Tuesday, May 31, 2022 (two sessions available)
Speaker: Doug Carroll, Tax & Estate Specialist at Aviso Wealth Inc.

Holistic planning wheel



Holistic Planning with Wealth Goals

The holistic wealth process is a personalized journey that keeps the focus on you throughout each stage. Working together, we will uncover what is most important to you and create an overall financial picture that ensures the wellbeing of you and your loved ones. We recognize that you and your situation are unique, and we incorporate this into every decision-at every stage-of your journey. The strategies we develop and the recommendations we provide will always reinforce our common goal: your wellbeing.

ESTATE PLANNING

We guide you through the organization of your estate and the establishment of your legacy. We identify strategies that will help protect your wealth during your lifetime and that will successfully transition this wealth to your beneficiaries when the time comes.

TAX PLANNING

We help you determine your current and future tax obligations so that we can recommend strategies that will minimize or defer taxation on personal and/or business income.

INSURANCE PLANNING

The experts at Credential Financial Strategies Inc. identify strategies that will protect your loved ones, wellbeing and quality of life-things that are important to you-in an effort to minimize the financial impact of loss, injury or illness.

FINANCIAL PLANNING

We look at your current and projected cash flows to define your financial picture. We then incorporate planning around your net worth, your budget and the management of your debt, establishing a roadmap for the future.

RETIREMENT PLANNING

We help you design a plan that not only balances living and saving comfortably now, but also achieves your desired retirement lifestyle. We work with you through every stage of the retirement process, evolving your plan over time and ensuring it adapts to changing circumstances.

INVESTMENT PLANNING

We focus on finding investment solutions that will serve as a link between your current financial situation and your articulated goals and objectives.
