The Canada Will Registry isn't just for law firms. Anyone in Canada can register their will and ensure that this important document is found when it's needed.
You made a will for a reason. Make sure it's found.
You made a will because you care about what happens to your estate. You may have prepared specific funeral arrangements, provisions for loved ones, or charitable donations. Your legacy is important.
But your family can't honour your wishes if they can't find your will. In wills and estates, original documents are extremely important. It's not enough for someone to have a photocopy or a scanned copy of your will.
Registration ensures that your will can be found.
For $35 plus HST, you can register the location (and a few additional details) of your will on the Canada Will Registry to ensure that the original document can be found when it's needed. It's as simple as filling in a one-page form telling us who you are, when you made your will, and where you've stored it.
We keep your information confidential until it's needed.
The information you register is not publicly accessible. NoticeConnect will only disclose the existence of your will after your death, to someone who has a valid reason to see it and the proper supporting documentation.
We keep your information confidential and secure, with your data stored in one of the world's best data centres. Top Canadian law firms have reviewed our system and trust us to store their data.
