Where there’s a will, there’s a way forward

This is part of a series of webinars we’re running all September long. Check out the other events here!

We’ve just posted a recording of Celia Chandler’s webinar, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way forward.” Check it out below.

Webinar description:

We all know we’re going to die but most of us assume it’s a long time in the future. COVID 19 made us think a little more about the prospect of death and dying. If you have put off making a will or you’ve had some major life changes and haven’t updated your will, this session is for you. We’ll talk about why having a will makes it easier for the people you leave behind. We’ll also talk about what a power of attorney for personal care and a power of attorney for property are and why you should have those too.

Free webinar: Balancing Rights and Responsibilities for Housing Providers in COVID-19

Update: a video of this webinar is now online. You can watch it below:

Join us Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 2 PM for a free webinar hosted by Neighbourhood Legal Services and Iler Campbell.

As emergency restrictions lift across Ontario, the medical community is alerting us to a so-called “fourth wave” of the pandemic: mental health and trauma. Supportive housing providers, residential care facilities, transitional or therapeutic homes, and non-profits and co-ops have had to quickly find ways to ensure the physical safety of staff and residents. While these precautions may prevent the spread of the virus, they can also lead to increased isolation and deteriorating mental health for residents. As restrictions begin to lift, organizations will be facing more questions about how to strike a balanced approach which fulfills their legal obligations to provide a safe living environment, with other legal obligations – including the Human Rights Code.

This webinar will talk you through some of these tough questions. Safia Lakhani (lawyer, Iler Campbell LLP) and Linette King (NLS staff housing lawyer) will discuss some of the common legal questions and concerns being raised by both housing providers and residents, and will provide perspectives on how your organization can strike the right balance.

Register to attend on Zoom.

We welcome your questions in advance. You can post them on the event page on Facebook or send them to the hosts privately.

**This event is for legal information only, and will not provide legal advice. No solicitor-client relationship is created with either Iler Campbell LLP or NLS Toronto by participating in this event.**
