The LCO’s 2015 report on small estates was highlighted in a recent CBC Go Public story.   The story quotes the LCO report that “the cost of probate — which isn’t mandatory but often necessary when there is a will — is ‘disproportionately high for small estates and can outweigh the benefits’.”  The CBC report can be found here and the LCO’s Small Estate report can be found here.
