Importance of making a Will


The key benefit of having a will in Canada is choosing who will get your property and how it will be divided among your beneficiaries. Another essential component of a will is to make specific gifts and appoint a guardian for your minor children.

In other words, why is it important to have a will? If you have a property or any form of asset such as balance in the bank or a car or minor child and want to make sure your assets are divided as per your wish and/ or your minor child has a guardian after your death, you should have a will in Canada.
