Extending the Extensions: Virtual Signing of Wills in Ontario Extended to October 22, 2020

September 25, 2020 Hull & Hull LLP Uncategorized Tags: , , , 0 Comments

As my colleague Paul Trudelle wrote in July, “Under the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act (“the Reopening Ontario Act”), Orders made under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act that have not been previously revoked are extended and continued under the Reopening Ontario Act.”

At that point, several orders, including virtual will signings, were extended for a period of thirty days.

As my colleague Arielle Di Iulio discussed here, the remote execution of wills and powers of attorney using video conferencing and counterpart were extended to September 22.

This past week, the Ontario Government released another list of extensions including the virtual signing of Wills under O. Reg 129/20

The full list of orders subject to this extension can be found here.

These orders are extended until October 22, 2020 or until such time as they are extended once more.

Thanks for reading!

Ian M. Hull and Daniel Enright
