Seminar: Power of Attorney (POA) & Will

Momiji & JSS Online e-Learning Session

Wed, May 26 at 3:00 – 4:15 pm (Japanese)

1-hour online session (Zoom) to learn about Powers of Attorney and Will from Nozomi (Zoe) Smith, an estate lawyer practicing in Ontario, will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS), in Japanese, on Wed, May 26 from 3 pm.

What is this session about?

Do you have anyone who will speak for you if you can no longer make your own financial or personal care decisions? What are your wishes after you pass away? In Ontario, there are legal documents you should have in place to prepare for your “what ifs” – Wills and Powers of Attorney. Let’s learn about those important documents to ensure your peace of mind. You will also be able to learn about the changes that are made this year to the estate law (i.e. will, inheritance).
Guest Speaker:  Nozomi (Zoe) Smith (J.D., LL.M) Pallett Valo LLP
