Will Week

We all have will power!

Having a valid, up-to-date Will, Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney ensures that your wishes will be met after your death. It also provides a great opportunity to make a charitable gift to a cause that's important to you.

Will Week, which takes place annually, is a series of free public presentations on the importance of Wills and estate planning. Sessions are presented, by professionals on a volunteer basis, as a public service and are for information purposes only.

Will Week 2019 is April 22-27

Seminars are free on a first come, first served basis. Seating is limited.

NEW THIS YEAR: Online registration is available.

Register now!

If you prefer to register by phone, call 204-948-3394.

Join us for Creating your Legacy

Want to learn more about including a charitable gift in your Will or estate? We hope you can join us for more information at a Creating your Legacy session.

These presentations are a great introduction about how you can plan now to create a legacy that reflects your life and helps our community.

Learn how easy it is to:

  • Leave a bequest for a cause close to your heart
  • Create a personal or family legacy
  • Give as part of your estate plan (there are tax benefits!)

To reserve your spot, please contact Jen Litchfield, Senior Associate of Donor Engagement at 204-944-9474 ext. 238 or by email.

Will Week is a collaboration between The Winnipeg Foundation, The Manitoba Bar Association and the Public Guardian and Trustee of Manitoba.
