Legal Info Nova Scotia's new web-based wills application is now live.  The app helps you collect the basic information your lawyer will need to do your will.  You'll find answers to common questions about making a will right here.  We strongly recommend that you have a lawyer do your will.  Contact our Lawyer Referral Service so we can put you in touch with a lawyer who does wills & estates work!

The Wills App ( was developed by a dynamite IT team from Saint Mary's University who volunteered 2 years of their time – not only for development but pilot implementation, evaluation and full-scale implementation.  This is a sophisticated app which is a considerable accomplishment. For those who would like more information about development of the app, recent coverage of our work to date can be found at:
