“If you’re thinking of putting assets into joint ownership with your children, read this first” by Jamie Golombek, Financial Post

Financial Post quotes Toronto lawyer, Corina Weigl, in an article on joint ownership.

Corina Weigl, a lawyer at Fasken in Toronto who recently blogged about the case, said that she sees “this (joint ownership) strategy used fairly regularly without any consideration of the (probate) taxes to be saved and the timing of those savings versus the costs incurred to fully implement the plan and the risks assumed. This is one planning point where it is critical to … ‘not let the tax dog wag the planning tail’.”
