Last month we onboarded the Queen’s Elder Law Clinic onto the Canada Will Registry! The QELC has been serving the Kingston community since 2010. They offer free legal services to elders that may not have the resources to seek legal counsel.
Not only does the QELC provide legal services, but they also provide free educational seminars on the various issues related to aging. The goal is to help Queen’s Law students gain experience and help those who have difficulty affording legal counsel.
Services QELC Offer:
- Assistance with future planning
- Assistance with court applications
- Legal advice regarding issues affecting seniors
- Public legal education
Connecting the Queen's Elder Law Clinic with the Canada Will Registry allows for the clinic to use our free will vault management tools, register their clients wills, and search for missing wills. QELC is also set up on NoticeConnect Plus, which allows for them to use the teams function and get to experience what tools wills and estates practices use everyday.
"QELC’s participation in The Canada Will Registry will move our clinic operations to the next level by providing an efficient and simple way to manage our document lists and a quick way to help our clients register or locate wills. The Canada Will Registry also introduces our student caseworkers to another estate planning resource, and this early exposure adds to the quality of their clinic experience."
