Willful‘s mission is to make estate planning easy and accessible to all Canadians. An important part of that is helping parents put a plan in place to protect their children in case something unexpected happens.
A recent survey commissioned by Willful and conducted among members of the Angus Reid Forum explores the current state of estate planning in Canada—particularly for Canadian parents of minor children.
The survey of 1,008 Canadian parents underscored a significant trend: even as they recognize the importance of having a will, they aren’t taking the next step to making one.
According to the survey, 52% of Canadian parents of minor-aged children, those 17 years of age and younger, don’t have a will. This is despite nearly all (97%) agreeing on the importance of having one.
To celebrate November as Make a Will Month, Willful is doubling down on their mission by eliminating the cost barrier.
Between November 7 – 13, Willful is stepping up to fill this estate planning gap by giving away free wills to parents.
