Identify which Canadians are likely to receive an inheritance 

WealthTransfer helps users estimate which households are most likely to receive an inheritance within the current year and quantifies the total potential inheritance amount. Financial institutions, real estate companies, retailers and dealerships all look to the WealthTransfer database to identify customer and market opportunities that may otherwise be missed. Find out which Canadians are more likely to improve their financial position through inheritance, make big-ticket purchases, donate to charitable causes or plan for their financial future. 

WealthTransfer is available for all postal and census geographies. The database is created using inputs from Statistics Canada’s 2017 Survey of Financial Security (SFS) modelled to the postal code level using key demographic and economic predictor variables from EA's comprehensive data sources. The database includes score and index variables to easily create customer or postal code rankings and inform economic models.
