Succession Law Tables of Concordance
CBA’s Wills, Estates and Trusts Section has assembled Succession Law Tables of Concordance. The Tables provide a quick reference to basic information about estate and succession laws in Canadian jurisdictions and links for ready access to make enquiries of court and land titles officials. They are a convenient starting point for lawyers considering estate files complicated by interprovincial issues or performing services in neighbouring jurisdictions. They are also a handy tool for those seeking to reform and harmonize succession law in the provinces and territories. A comprehensive update of the Tables of Concordance was launched in 2011, along with changes to the website to provide easier access.
