Training & Support

We understand that there are caring individuals in every community who are impacting the lives of children who have special needs. We want to support your efforts by offering opportunities to learn information that you can use straight away.

Wills & Financial Planning Sessions

Each year, in the fall, Aspire offers FREE Wills and Financial Planning workshops for families of children with special needs. 

These sessions touch on Wills information including; estate planning, providing for a dependent child, rules for AISH, discretionary trust for childen and charitable giving. In the same session information on Registered Disability Savings Plan's (RDSP's) is provided. Things like; who can benefit from or contribute to RDSP's, how to open a plan, contributions and limits, and tax implications, are all discussed in this session.
