Government of BC:
VICTORIA - As part of Make a Will Week 2015, the Province is zeroing in on the younger generation, and calling for people under the age of 40 to get busy and make their wills now, said Suzanne Anton, Attorney General and Minister of Justice.
A provincewide poll conducted for the Society of Notaries Public of B.C. found that 80% of people age 18 to 34 do not have a current and legal will. While people in this age range may think they don’t need a will, the fact is many important life events generally occur during those years. People may build a career, open a business, and purchase major assets such as real estate or property. Many individuals in this age range embark on adventures abroad, get married and start a family. All these events should signal the need for a will.
