Once the executor has obtained a clearance certificate from Canada Revenue, releases from the beneficiaries, and the estate has been distributed is there anything else the executor has to do? Does the executor need to apply to the Court to be discharged from the position and have the probate file closed? It would be nice if in the explanation it actually says "This is the last thing the executor must do and then everything is finished." Also, what does an executor do with all the paperwork? Is there a requirement to keep it for so many years? Thank-you.
