Are you one of the 51% of Canadians that do not have a Will?

Despite COVID-19, 51% of Canadians still do not have a current will.  Nobody wants to think about his or her own death but if you have loved ones, a current will is a last gift of love that you can give those closest to you.

What would happen if something happened to you today?  Would your family know where your documents are? Life Insurance details? What happens to your estate? What about your children’s education?  These are all questions you need to ask yourself.

Kiriak Law can help you to draw up a legal will and help ensure that your last wishes are carried out as you have directed.

If you are an adult with any sort of assets or dependants — and that includes your pets — you should have a will in place.

Even if you don’t have property or dependants, there are government benefits that will help pay for a funeral, but only if you leave beneficiaries or an executor to carry out your wishes.

Canadian law requires that, in order to be legally binding, will and power of attorney documents must be physically printed and stored offline. They must be signed in the presence of two witnesses who are also required to sign the document.

Digital signatures are not legally valid.
