For your community members residing on-reserve, for any who might wish to write a will or who might be looking for general information about on-reserve estates.  You might have these already, but I am including them just in case.

  1. General information for on-reserve estates (for example, what is an estate, what does an administrator/executor do) Estate services for First Nations (sac-isc.gc.ca);
  2. General information for estate administrators – Administering an Indian Act Estate: General Information for Administrators (sac-isc.gc.ca);
  3. Aboriginal Financial Officers will writing kit for First Nations People Living on Reserve.  This includes a template for simple estates and is a good starting point for writing a will. AFOA BC also takes requests for mail outs, if you would like hard copies. https://afoabc.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/AFOA-BC-Wills-and-Estates-Booklet-2019.pdf
