Preparing Your Will

Preparing Your Will is for people who are preparing a will in British Columbia. It explains how to prepare a will, what to consider when appointing an executor, and next steps after the will is finished. This edition reflects the Wills, Estates and Succession Act. The information is current to January 2019.
