If you do not create a will, your estate will be distributed according to provincial laws, which may or may not represent the best possible outcome for your family and loved ones. Drafting a will ensures that the distribution of your estate will be according to your intentions and preferences. Our lawyer can provide the right legal advice by helping you choose who will inherit your assets.

While creating a will with the help of our lawyer, you can also choose your personal estate representative. This representative is responsible for making financial and healthcare decisions on your behalf if an accident or mental health issues leave you incapacitated.
