About You

Executor Depot was created to help you, your family and loved ones.

This is the section where we'd normally talk about us, but it isn't about us, it's about you!

Our vision is to create a remarkably user-friendly experience for Canadians managing some of the most difficult challenges in their lives: estate preparation and settlement. If your experience is positive, we hope you'll tell your friends and family, and if not, we hope you'll tell us! You can reach us at info@executordepot.com.

To keep these important services available for all Canadians, there's no charge to you for any of the tools and resources on this site. If you require further products and services, we'll introduce you to firms we've vetted for professionalism, fair pricing and availability across the country. We think they're outstanding and we hope you will as well.

You can be rest assured that any personal information and documents that is shared with us will remain strictly confidential and protected. Plus, you can sign in to your account from any computer or mobile device to get instant access to government forms and resources that you'll need during this process. Should you need assistance, our highly-qualified certified executor advisors (CEAs) are available across Canada to offer quick advice and answers.

Whether you're a testator (preparing an estate) , executor (settling an estate) or an heir (receiving proceeds of an estate) , here are some numbers you want to be aware of:

Surveys tell us 98% of Canadians will name a family member as their executor (also known as 'estate trustee' in Ontario and 'liquidator' in Québec) . It's a do-it-yourself (DIY) world, but sometimes we need a little help. Executor Depot has just what you need for DIY estate preparation and settlement.

Being an executor is the hardest job you never applied for. Where to start? What to do? What not to do? What's the risk? There are 18 areas with supporting case law where negligence by the executor can result in personal liability. We're here to help!

What about your executor? Will they feel honoured or overwhelmed? Is your estate well prepared? Are you even sure your will is valid? It's estimated up to 70% of Canadians don't have a current and valid will. We're here to help you preserve your legacy.

Wondering what the executor is doing? Heirs (beneficiaries of estates) have lots of questions. An estimated $300 million per day will transfer over the next 20 years. You deserve to know what's going on and how to manage it. We get it. That's why we're here to help you, too.
