The Will in Quebec notary montreal, The-Will-in-Quebec-notary.jpg


Types of wills in Quebec – There are three recognized forms of wills in Quebec: holographic, before witness, and notarial will. Notion such ‘living will’’ started to circulate after the adoption of the Law regarding End-of-Life Care, but they refer to directives for health care at the end of life, expressed through a document which derives from a person’s general right to accept or to refuse health care which is provided for them.

Every person should make their own will; this document is an individual act but there is, nonetheless, an exception: a clause established through a notarized marriage contract (all property to the surviving spouse) and that clause has equal judicial value as the notarial will. Any person who has reached the age of majority and is mentally stable can make this document, as well as a fully emancipated minor; a person who is younger than 18 can make a testament only for their less valuable goods.

Advantages of the notarial will:

  • You benefit from the advice of a Law professional;
  • The document is registered at the Registry of Testamentary Dispositions of the Chamber of Notaries of Québec and the notary keeps the original document which makes it very easy to retrace it after your death.
  • The document won’t require verification after your death
  • Your document is more difficult to contest; the notary ensures to verify your identity and your consent, apart from making sure that all legal requirements for validity are respected.
  • The costs that your successors would have to support in order to verify a holographic or a before witnesses will are a lot bigger than the notary fees for preparing your notarial will.
