Will Check – Wills Registry for Ontario

We’re pleased to announce that, a Wills Registry for Ontario, is now open for use by lawyers across the province! Will Check is an initiative by the County of Carleton Law Association, funded in part by the Federation of Law Associations (FOLA), to keep track of will location information to assist in future retrieval. You can register a will individually or send them a batch file of information on several clients. They do not store the will itself, just information on where it can be located, and they provide a release form your clients can sign to approve having their will registered on the site. There is no fee for this service. Check it out at!
