Before the Wills, Estates, and Succession Act (WESA) of British Columbia replaced the Wills Variation Act in 2014, a Will was considered valid if the courts were satisfied that the Will was in writing, had been signed by the testator (will-maker), and had been properly witnessed. While these aspects are still important, the introduction of WESA has since given the courts of British Columbia discretionary authority to cure a Will with deficiencies which would otherwise invalidate the Will, if it is deemed to clearly represent a deceased testator’s true intentions.
