Make a Will

A will is a legal document that says what you want done with everything you own (your assets) when you die. Assets are:

  • property (land, house, condo)
  • money (bank accounts, investments, RRSPs/RRIFs, TFSAs)
  • personal belongings (household goods, vehicles, valuables)

When you die, your assets make up what is called your estate. The people you give your estate to are called your beneficiaries. You can make a simple will using this guided pathway if you plan to leave your estate to your spouse, or to a small number of people or all your children and in equal shares. If you have a complicated situation, or can afford legal help, getting help from a lawyer or a notary is a good idea.

This pathway will take about 25 minutes to complete. Your answers are anonymous. See our privacy policy for more information. Take the time to think about your decisions carefully before you fill in and sign the will form you’ll receive at the end.
