There are a number of province-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.

General Forms

In British Columbia, the Supreme Court of BC handles probate and estate administration (see Supreme Court registry locations).

You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common BC forms:

Note that the above forms do not normally work in a browser: you must download them to your computer and use a local PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat.

See BC Probate Forms for a more complete list of forms that may be required in certain situations. You may have to right-click the link for the form you want, and select Open Link in New Tab, for it to then download the form to your computer.

Small Estates

Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small BC Estates.


If the estate needs to probate real estate in another province, you may be able to reseal the original grant of probate rather than start from scratch in the secondary province: see Ancillary Probate & Resealing.
