People in Newfoundland and Labrador who are thinking of making or updating a Last Will and Testament, an Enduring Power of Attorney, or an Advance Health Care Directive, or who have other questions in relation to their plan for their estate, sometimes ask some of the same questions. Do I need a Will? How do I make a Will? How do I choose an executor? What is a beneficiary? What is an Enduring Power of Attorney?
Many of these questions have simple answers, or can be answered quickly with some basic information. For that reason we have prepared an Estate Planning Guidebook that provides some general information and some definitions for terms commonly used by lawyers and estate planning advisors.
