Do you have questions about Ontario law concerning older adults? June is Seniors' Month and the Elder Law Section of the Ontario Bar Association has invited lawyers with expertise in the unique legal issues and needs of older adults to discuss a variety of topics, including:
- capacity concerns
- the importance of Powers of Attorney
- remedies for financial abuse of seniors.
Sheila Morris, an associate with Minden Gross LLP in Toronto and a member of the Ontario Bar Association's Elder Law Section Executive, will be offering a one-hour presentation through Zoom for interested KFPL viewers. Learn about the rights and responsibilities under Ontario law of older adults and those who care for them.
This program requires individual registration, which will open at 9 AM on Saturday June 13. A Zoom link and password will be shared with registrants the day prior to the discussion.
In order to register for this presentation, have your KFPL barcode number and 4-digit PIN ready and then click on the blue REGISTER button at the top right of the screen any time after 9 AM on June 13; if you don't yet have a KFPL membership or if you need to renew one, please take one out by following the steps here.
Please note that this presentation will not be recorded for those unable to attend on Thursday afternoon. This is at the request of the sponsoring agency, the Ontario Bar Association, whose concern is that legal information changes, and they don't want details being distributed/aired at a later date which may no longer be correct.
However, this same topic will be presented elsewhere in Ontario over the next couple of weeks, and it may be possible to catch it through a seniors' centre or at another public library. We stress that it would be necessary to contact the other hosting organizations directly in order to find out if that would be possible. The schedule, along with contact information, is available here.
