Important Notes: 

Some provinces may also charge filing fees and other administrative costs. Provincial legislation must be reviewed to understand all applicable fees and costs.

The value of estate is calculated according to the rules of each province which may or may not allow deductions for such things as specific debts or property (real or personal) located outside the province.

Fees may be payable in more than one province.
