SAVE THE DATE/ INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY: BMO Panel Examines the Financial Impact of Divorce

More Than 100,000 Canadians Go "Splitsville" Each Year

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2011) - According to Statistics Canada, 43 per cent of marriages are expected to end in divorce before they reach their 50th anniversary. Every year more than 100,000 individuals in Canada go through divorce. While divorce is not a topic frequently discussed by couples, there are personal consequences and many legal and financial implications as well.

A new study from BMO Financial Group shows the majority of couples are unprepared to deal with what is considered to be one of the most stressful events in a couple's life.

Media representatives are invited to a panel conference call on October 6th at 11 a.m. ET featuring experts who will discuss a variety of topics including:
What are the tax and financial implications of divorce and how can one adequately prepare?
Are there regional differences for laws pertaining to divorce?
How has family and divorce law evolved over the past few decades, including the new Ontario pension rules in 2011?
What are the common misconceptions around divorce?
What are the implications on privately-held businesses?
