How is a estate distributed?

If a person dies with a will, the estate will be distributed by the estate trustee in accordance with the directions in that will. The distributions will be made after funeral, burial expenses, taxes and any debts have been paid.

When a person dies without a valid will, which is called “intestate”, part II of the Succession Law Reform Act, RSO 1990, c S.26 sets out how the estate is distributed. For more information on distribution on an intestacy, visit: https://www.wagnersidlofsky.com/articles/intestacy-in-ontario.php.
