Éducaloi is pleased to share several new legal information tools on wills and estates for Indigenous people living in a community. As you know, different rules apply under the Indian Act and it’s important for community members to be aware of this.

ONLINE ARTICLES:

Our web guide on Indigenous wills and estates covers topics like: how to make a will, settling an estate, inheriting land in an Indigenous community, and caring for a loved one who is incapacitated.

LEGAL INFORMATION PAMPHLETS:

Legal information pamphlets are available at the Abenakis of Odanak Band Council. They treat subjects like:

  • Making a will
  • When a Loved One Dies in a Indegenous Community

Please go to the reception desk of the Band Council to get one.
