Holographic wills in BC

A holographic will is one that is hand-written (not to be confused with a printed page where you fill in the blanks). It's a less formal way of making a will, and accordingly has less formal requirements for validity. For example, in jurisdictions where holographic wills are allowed, they do not require witnesses.

Currently in British Columbia, holographic wills are not legally recognized but that may change in the future. Click here to read an article from the law firm of Clark Wilson LLP that talks about what changes may be expected with new legislation being introduced in BC.
