In Canada, the role of an executor in administering a deceased person’s estate is both significant and complex. Executors play a crucial role in settling an estate, which involves tasks such as distributing assets, paying off debts and ensuring the deceased’s final wishes are carried out. In return for their efforts, executors are entitled to claim for compensation. However, the rules regarding executor compensation vary across provinces, and there are distinct benefits and pitfalls associated with this compensation.  

What is an executor?
An executor is a person named in your will who will be responsible, after you die, for making sure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes and that your estate is settled properly. This includes a wide range of activities, from filing a final tax return and cancelling your credit cards to giving away your jewellery or collectibles, and selling your home and investments.
