Disability Income Support Webinar

Navigating the complexities of disability income support can be confusing for many. Whether you, a family member or a friend has a disability, it is important to understand the abundance of available resources and options – especially those designed to relieve the financial obligations and expenses.

To help guide you toward a deeper understanding of these solutions, we invite you to join us for a conversation featuring Doug Carroll, resident tax expert at Aviso Wealth. In his talk, Doug will outline the advantages offered through valuable programs like the Canada Child Benefit (CCB) and explain the structure and benefits of contributing to a disability-focused, tax-saving vehicle such as the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).

More than that, it can open up business financing, and offer tax advantages unlike any other financial tool.  

 Attend this webinar to learn ways to protect your business and your family with life insurance strategies.

  • Entrepreneurial exposure
  • Four fundamental needs – income replacement, key person, buy-sell funding, estate taxes
