This video is part of a series dealing with a variety of money-related matters. Here, the focus is on the importance of having an up-to-date will.

A will is a legal document in which a person sets out how his estate is to be distributed after death. It can also specify who is to become guardian of any children who have not reached the age of majority.

A lawyer explains that if someone dies without a will, the estate will be handled by court-appointed administrator and distributed according to provincial law, whether or not this is what the person would have liked.

A will can be a formal document, drawn up with the assistance of a lawyer, or it can be a holograph will, completed entirely in the handwriting of the person making the will.
