Electronic Wills in British Columbia – Update

Last year I posted a blog[1] about the British Columbia statute, Wills, Estates and Succession Amendment Act, 2020.[2] It introduced electronic wills, but its provisions did not come into force immediately to permit the province to enact amended rules. The legislation has now been brought into force effective 1 December 2021,[3] together with amendments to the Supreme Court Civil Rules[4] that implement the legislation, which also become effective on 1 December 2021.[5]
