October 2 to 8, 2022 is Make-A-Will Week in British Columbia.
Many British Columbians don’t have a Will. According to a 2020 report, BC Notaries note that just 50 percent of us have a signed, legally valid, and up-to-date Will. Through Make-a-Will Week, the government wants to encourage all of us to write or update our Will.
Having a Will ensures your wishes are respected if the unexpected happens.
- A Will is the best way to ensure that the people, charities, and organizations you cherish most receive the benefit of your estate.
- If you die without a Will, your estate may not be distributed in the way you would have wished, and the costs of administering your estate may also be higher.
- Having a Will helps ensure that important questions for parents – like who will raise your young children if both you and your spouse die – are answered.
