Did you know: If you don’t have a will the Indian Act sets out who will inherit everything you own if you are status First Nations and live on reserve.
Why have a Will?
Having a Will is an important part of planning for your future!
A Will is a legal document that establishes what you would like to happen with your belongings/assets when you pass away.
A Will also identifies the person who will look after your minor children.
What will happen at the Wills & Estate Planning Clinic?
You will have an opportunity to meet individually with a legal advisor, learn about Estate planning, and start preparing your Will. Following the meeting, the legal advisor will use your instructions to prepare your draft Will.
A second meeting will be scheduled for your review of the draft Will prior to finalization.
As part of the process, you will need to communicate your belongings and think about your final wishes. It will be important to know what you own and how you own it. For example…
- Do you own a vehicle? If so, is it financed or owned outright?
- Do you have savings or investments? If so, are they individual or shared with your spouse? Is there a beneficiary?
*You will need to bring photo identification (such as a Driver’s License or Status Card).
