The introduction of our 2020 Speakers’ Series once again demonstrates STEP Canada’s educational leadership in the trust and estate industry.

Virtually all of the 55 speakers who agreed to present topics at STEP’s 2020 Annual National Conference have agreed to participate in our new 2020 Speakers’ Series. We are very grateful to have the support of these talented practitioners who are willing to share their expertise online.
All sessions are professionally produced in STEP’s virtual studio. Two broadcasts are scheduled each week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 noon ET, starting September 15 through November 26. A total of 22 sessions will be available to delegates who register for the full series. For the full program schedule, click here.
