This week NoticeConnect attended the 135th annual Ontario Funeral Service Association AGM & Education Conference, at Ontario's Blue Mountain Resort. It was a great opportunity for us to connect with funeral directors, who play an important role educating estate trustees about their legal responsibilities.
Many estate trustees never consult a lawyer, which means that funeral directors play an important role educating trustees about estate administration. This often takes the form of educational materials on a funeral home website, pamphlets and brochures, and lists of resources.
I connected with funeral home directors and shared updates about how NoticeConnect is helping estate administers advertise for creditors and find missing wills.
When a friend or family member takes on the role of executor of an estate, it’s very important they protect themselves from personal liability by advertising for creditors. NoticeConnect has changed how this is done. Publishing a Notice to Creditors on NoticeConnect.com satisfies the requirement of advertising for creditors under s. 53(1) of the Trustee Act.
We offer free educational brochures to funeral homes about advertising for creditors. Click here to order them online.
