A fair share?

The link below goes to an outstanding article from Forum, a publication of Advocis (the Financial Advisors Association of Canada), November/December 2010 edition. It talks about how Canadian law is changing so that a person with a moral claim on an estate may have a fair share of a deceased's estate even though the deceased deliberately left the person out of the Will.  It's an interesting concept - how much right do we actually have to dispose of our estates the way we want to?

The article contains a table (reprinted from the Canadian Bar Association webpage) that breaks down by province who can make a claim against an estate on the basis of being a financial dependent.
