Elements of a Will

The law recognizes two basic ways in which persons may make gratutious gifts of property - by inter vivos gift or by testamentary disposition (or a will):

A good will is a juridical act that is:

(a)  Intended to have disposing effect;

(b)  Intended not to take effect until after death and to be entirely dependent on death for its operation;

(c)  Intended to be revocable (and revocable in fact); and

(d)  Executed in accordance with the wills legislation of the appropriate province or territory;
