Halifax lawyers create a resource for STEP Canada outlining temporary estate document signing protocols by province during the COVID19 Pandemic

Halifax Partners Richard Niedermayer, TEP, Secretary, STEP Canada, and Tim Matthews, QC, TEP, and Articled Clerk Madeleine Coats, have prepared a useful resource for STEP Canada members outlining the options in place for having estate documents signed in each province and territory during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the limitations brought on by social distancing, some provinces have legislated alternatives to signing documents to ensure they are done safely and are still considered to be valid post-COVID 19. Our lawyers have created a chart for STEP Canada members to capture the basic signing protocols by province for easy reference.

If you have any questions with respect to executing estate documents during the COVID-19 pandemic, or require guidance in this area, please contact a member of our Estates and Trusts practice group.
