Wills Guide for Canada

Wills Guide for Canada gives you the information you must have in order to make your own will.
Leaving a good will is one of the most valuable gifts you can give your loved ones. It also allows you to decide for yourself who will look after your affairs and who will benefit from your hard-earned earthly wealth. If you die without making a proper, valid will, your family and relatives may become involved in expensive lawsuits or struggle through months of paperwork. Your assets will be distributed according to the law of your province, not according to your wishes.
This book answers questions such as:
  • How much work is it to administer an estate?
  • If I make a will, do I have to use a lawyer?
  • Who should be my executor?
  • Do I have to leave anything to my spouse or children?
  • Can I change my mind about bequests?
  • How should I choose my witnesses?

Whether you are a young parent wanting to do what's right for your children, or have recently remarried and need to balance the needs of your children from your first marriage with those of your new spouse, or even if you have no dependents but want to ensure that your assets go to the causes or people of your choosing, Wills Guide for Canada gives you the information you must have.
