Paul Adam on Wills and Estates: What is an Executor?


What is an Executor? An Executor is the person who’s the legal representative of your Estate. 

After you die, your Executor is responsible for taking all of the assets and properties that you own and distributing it to your heirs. 

If you’re thinking about who should be your Executor, you want to name a person who is responsible, organized, a good communicator, and who keeps their head in a difficult emotional situation, and if you can pick somebody who lives in Ontario.

Wise Law's Family #LawFact of the Day: Same-Sex Marriage in Canada


The first same-sex marriage in Ontario occurred on January 14, 2001.

Its legality, along with the legality of many other same-sex marriages, was affirmed by the Ontario Court of Appeal on June 10, 2003 in a case called Halpern v. Canada.

Same-sex marriage and divorce have been recognized throughout Canada since July 20, 2005, when the Government of Canada passed the Civil Marriage Act, which newly defined marriage in a gender-neutral manner.

Wise Law's Employment #LawFact of the Day: Severance Entitlements of Long-Term Employees


In 2015, an Ontario Court awarded 27 months’ of pay in lieu of reasonable notice to a 65-year-old civil engineer who had been employed for 40.66 years. 

In exceptional circumstances involving extraordinarily long-service employees, it is within the discretion of Ontario Courts to award more than 24 months’ damages. 

Seek legal advice to determine your rights and entitlements.

Paul Adam on Wills and Estates: What is the difference between a Last Will and a Power of Attorney? Do I need both?


A Last Will only determines what happens to your property after you have passed. 

A Power of Attorney is used to appoint someone to manage your property and your medical care if you are incapable. It is no longer valid after death. 

In some ways, having an Attorney who can protect you while you are still living is even more important that having a will.
