The Estate Planning Council of Toronto


The health and safety of the Estate Planning Council of Toronto, guests and the staff of the Albany Club are very important to us. As the COVID 19  pandemic continues to play out and with the city of Toronto cancelling all city events and permits to the end of June, the EPCT deems it best to follow this lead.

With that said, the upcoming EPCT event on May 5, 2020 and our Summer Social are cancelled. We plan to commence our 2020/2021 EPCT season in October of 2020. Thank you for your understanding. Best wishes to you and those close to you and we hope to see you all in the fall!

Best regards,

The Executive of the Estate Planning Council of Toronto
