About A Death in Your Family
A Death in Your Family is for people in British Columbia who want to know what to do when a loved one dies. It covers preparing for the death of a loved one, what to do immediately after the death, making the funeral arrangements, and where to find support. The information reflects the Wills, Estates and Succession Act, which became law in 2014.
