She has also developed expertise in the legal aspects of incapacity and disability planning and end-of-life decision making. Angela is a frequent presenter on topics such as cross-border tax and estate planning, disability law, taxation and registered plans, MAID & end-of-life decision making, powers of attorney wills, effective probate planning and executor liability.
