Register and Search for Wills

The Canada Will Registry is an essential tool for estate planning and administration.

How it Works

Register Wills

Ensure that estate planning documents will be found

  • Available to estate practitioners
  • Register one will or multiple wills at once
  • Receive alerts when someone is looking for a will you registered

Search for Wills

Due diligence to ensure you haven’t missed a document

  • Submit a search query. If someone has a matching will, they’ll reach out to you directly
  • You’ll receive a Search Certificate proving that you took appropriate steps to identify forgotten, missing, or competing wills - see a preview here

Receive Alerts When Someone’s Looking for a Will You’re Holding
