Wills Registry

The Wills Registry allows you to register information about your Will, called a Wills Notice, which records:

  • name, sex, date of birth, and birthplace of the person who made the Will;
  • where the original Will is located; and,
  • the date the Will was executed (signed and witnessed).

You cannot register an actual copy of your Will with the Wills Registry, only a Notice of its existence and location.  The Wills Registry is operated by the Vital Statistics Agency of the British Columbia Ministry of Health.
