A will makes it possible to say how property is to be distributed after death. Without a will, property will be distributed according to the provisions of the Civil Code of Quebec. The best way to plan the distribution of property is by a notarial will.

There are various forms of gift that will allow property to be distributed to heirs:

  • A defined sum of money or a specific asset (specific legacy)

  • Total assets that can be divided between several beneficiaries (universal legacy)
  • Life insurance policy
  • Retirement savings plan
  • Real estate
  • Movable property
  • Work of art
  • Listed shares
