Knowledgeable Toronto Estate Lawyers Able to Act as Estate Trustees

Trustees are individuals appointed to hold property in trust for the benefit of any beneficiaries of that trust. Generally, executors or trustees are friends, family, or loved ones of the testator (the individual making the will).
