Wills, Estates and Succession Act Introduced in Legislative Assembly

Yesterday, Attorney General Wally Oppal introduced the Wills, Estates and Succession Act (Bill 28) in the Legislative Assembly. This legislation, if passed and brought into force, will significantly change British Columbia succession law. It will be perhaps the most significant overhaul of succession law in British Columbia's history.

The legislation is largely based on the British Columbia Law Institute's Succession Law Reform Project recommendations. But the most controversial proposals did not make into Bill 28.

I will be posting a series of articles outlining many of the proposed changes.
