Changes to Ontario Probate Form 74C

Form 74C Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee replaces:

  • Form 74.13 Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee with a Will 
  • Form 74.13.1 Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee with a Will Limited to the Assets Referred to in the Will
  • Form 74.20 Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee without a Will
  • Form 74.20.3 Certificate of Appointment of Foreign Estate Trustee’s Nominee as Estate Trustee without a Will
  • Form 74.23 Certificate of Appointment of Succeeding Estate Trustee with a Will
  • Form 74.23.1 Certificate of Appointment of Succeeding Estate Trustee with a Will Limited to the Assets Referred to in the Will
  • Form 74.26 Certificate of Appointment of Succeeding Estate Trustee without a Will
  • Form 74.29 Certificate of Ancillary Appointment of Estate Trustee with a Will
  • Form 74.31 Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee During Litigation


As noted above, Form 74C replaces all nine variations of the Certificate of Appointment that were in effect until January 1, 2022.

The main change to this form is that the applicants must select one of the types of Certificates from the list, check the box, and remove the others. 

The rest of the changes to the Certificate are cosmetic, listing the deceased’s full address and formatting the applicants’ information in a more uniform format than the previous versions of the Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee.
