If you have a holograph will or a will before witnesses, make sure you keep it in a safe place, like a safety deposit box, or with a lawyer. Before your death, make sure you tell someone you trust where to find your will.
After your death, your relatives can search this register to find out if you have registered a will. They can do this by:
to the following address:
Registres des dispositions testamentaires et
des mandats de la Chambre des notaires du
Tour de la Bourse
800, Place-Victoria, niveau Promenade
Montréal, (Québec) H4Z 1L9
Your relatives will receive a search certificate that tells them whether a will is registered in your name. It will also tell them the name, address and phone number of the lawyer or notary who has the original will.
