This year, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry will focus on the lifecycle of multi-generation farm, dealing with issues on the estate, to matrimony, through to post mortem planning for the farm.

Last year we introduced the concept of retiring into a child’s company. We’ll take this to the next level for setting up shareholder loans and landco’s as well as discussing operational items including equipment partnerships and how we can effectively operate these structures through to post motem planning. We’ll review capital gain and rollover scenarios, as well as questions and concerns when transferring the partnership into the corporation.
