Elimination of Probate Fees

On November 6, 2020, the Manitoba government officially passed legislation to eliminate the fees for probate.

Although not always required, a probate is a legal document that gives the executor(s) authority to disburse the estate of a deceased person according to the instructions in the will. In Manitoba, the charges relating to applications for probate have been eliminated.

If you have been named an executor, we can assist by preparing your loved one’s final personal tax return and estate return, where applicable.

We also provide estate planning services. We can meet with you to review your current situation and any estate planning documents you already have and provide recommendations and research tools to make your planning simple, efficient, and worry-free. Estate planning can save your family a lot of time, heartache and money.
