MAKE A WILL WEEK, 8 APRIL TO 14 APRIL 2018
Do you have a Will? A BC Notary explains the top 5 reasons to make one
During the annual Make a Will Week British Columbians are encouraged to take action by writing their will or bringing an existing will up to date. Making a Will is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your loved ones.
A good way to start the process is to identify a legal professional in your community, like a Notary, who can assist you in preparing a proper and legal Will. Local Notaries are available in many areas of BC to talk about the importance of Wills and what people should think about when preparing a Will.

BC Notaries continue to support Make A Will Week by providing advice and information to the public.
The Society of Notaries Public of BC represents 360 highly-trained Notary professionals. Most have locally owned and operated offices and all provide personal assistance to clients around the province. Individuals, families, and businesses seek the services of BC Notaries for a wide range of non-contentious legal matters, including residential and commercial real estate transfers, mortgage refinancing, Wills and advanced healthcare planning, powers of attorney, and other important documents.
The Notary’s Tradition of Trust spans 2000 years. Notaries first came to British Columbia over 100 years ago. They continue to serve their valued clients and their communities across the province.
