Expected number of CE credits for Part 1 = 2.0.

Part 2 of this series, to take place on Tuesday, March 28, 2023 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET, will use two case studies to review the planning essentials for business owners including topics such as family-owned vs arm’s length businesses, shareholder agreements, will planning, estate freezes, philanthropy and corporate owned life insurance. Expected number of CE credits for Part 2 = 2.0.

All registrants will be able to purchase the Essential Canadian Guide in paperback or electronic form at a reduced price on for one month following the second presentation.
