Check out our refreshed website

Laptop positioned on a stool, with words on screen about refreshed website

April 12, 2021

Last week, we migrated this website onto the Contentful platform. It delivers a crisp and lightning fast user experience. Check out these new features:

  • A search function that provides better, context-rich results. Go ahead, click on search in the upper right and type something in — the results pop up even before you finish your first word.

  • A more organized Q&A section where you can find answers to specific questions asked by your peers across the province. 

  • A streamlined section below each content page that links to related topics and Q&A. So, for example, if you're looking at our overview on settling an estate, you can scroll down to learn more about filling out probate forms or issues with beneficiaries. 

Take our site for a spin anytime on desktop or mobile, and don't be shy: tell us what you think!

This website explains in a general way the law that applies in British Columbia, Canada. The information is not intended as legal advice. The cases we refer to reflect real experiences, but names have been changed. See our full disclaimer.
