Why do I need a will?

At your death, a will serves as a road map telling your personal representative how to distribute your property and assets to family, other people, the church, and/or charities. With a Will, you can honor commitments to family and friends, and also support your faith community.  Without a will, you are powerless over how your assets are distributed. Instead, the laws of the Saskatchewan determine how assets are divided- which may not be the way you would have wanted.
