The Wills, Estates and Succession Act, S.B.C. 2009, c. 13 (the “WESA”) will come into force on March 31, 2014.
On November 21 & 22, 2013, the B.C. Continuing Legal Education Society held a two day conference on the WESA. Over 500 lawyers and other estates practitioners attended the conference in person or by webcast. Our partner Fiona Hunter, along with Vancouver lawyers Roger D. Lee, and Helen H. Low, chaired the conference, and Fiona also participated in a panel discussion on “best practice” drafting under the WESA.
