West Vancouver Foundation Events

Will Power Seminar

WILLPower is an initiative of the West Vancouver Foundation to build awareness and make it easier for individuals and families to move forward with their personal Wills and Estate planning.

This year we will once again be hosting straight-forward, accessible information sessions led by local estate planning professionals. Information is provided as a public service, for information purposes only (no solicitation).

Ms. Garton will address many of the common questions that face individuals and families regarding Wills and Estate planning. The webinar is designed to provide information to help you navigate the process and empower you to proceed with clarity and confidence. 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 consider a legacy gift to a charity or cause important to your family.

Moderated by Elaine McHarg, VP Philanthropy & Partnerships, West Vancouver Foundation.

The next WILLPower webinar is June 14, 2-3:00 pm, in-person.

Our expert presenter is lawyer Nicole Garton of Heritage Law.

Date: Tuesday June 14, 2022

Time: 2:00-3:30 pm

Location: West Vancouver Memorial Library (Welsh Hall), 1950 Marine Drive, West Vancouver


This year the WVF is working in concert with other charities and the Canadian Association of Gift Planners on a national campaign which includes information about the impact of Legacy giving more information can be found at
