Will Interpretations

Where the terms of a will of a deceased person are unclear or ambiguous, the estate trustee or any person with an interest in the estate, can bring an application to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to seek the advice, direction, and opinion of the court regarding the testator’s intentions. The court will attempt to determine, having regard to the specific words used in the will and the circumstances of the testator’s life, what the testator really intended to have happen with respect to the disposition of his or her property after his or her death.
