Wills & Estates Law
In Ontario, if you die without a valid, complete Will, an intestacy is created, and the distribution of your Estate will be governed entirely by the Succession Law Reform Act. As well, under Ontario law, if you have not granted a Power of Attorney for Care and are unable to consent to medical care or treatment, an application may be required to the Ontario Consent and Capacity Board for the appointment of a substitute decision maker for you. Your consent is not required in such a proceeding and you may have no legal or personal control over such an appointment.
For these reasons, it is important to have a valid Will and Powers of Attorney in place as they are vital pieces of your Estate plan. A proper Estate plan will minimize your Estate’s tax liabilities and clearly distribute your assets to your intended beneficiaries. Estate planning is a process.
