A will is a legally binding document that lays out how you want your assets divided when you die. If you die without a will, you are said to be intestate, and a provincial formula is used to dictate who will inherit your assets, and the share of the estate that each person is entitled to. Most people assume that their spouse will inherit everything, but this is rarely the case. Estate law falls under the province you are resident in and/or have property in and varies from province to province.
