As part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Saskatchewan developed emergency regulations affecting several pieces of legislation to facilitate the ongoing provision of legal services and maintain the public’s ongoing access to justice during these times of physical distancing and implementation of additional health protocols. One of the practice areas supported by these regulations is wills and estates. To guide and support the membership who avail themselves of the emergency measures in the regulations, the Law Society issued Practice Directives Number 1 and 3. There are unique requirements associated with each of these Directives as Number 1 applies to the execution of Powers of Attorney (among other documents) and Number 3 applies strictly to the execution of Wills. Both allow for virtual execution or remote witnessing by “electronic means.” There are steps you can take to lessen the risk of a complaint or a claim when you are virtually witnessing Wills or Powers of Attorney listed in the resource: Remote Witnessing of Wills and Power of Attorney: Avoiding Claims and Complaints.
