Estate Forms under Rule 74 and 75 of the Rules of Civil Procedure


WARNING: Any forms shaded in grey in the table below have not yet come into force. Do not use them prior to their effective date, which is listed in the table below. Until the effective date, only use the current version of the form, which appears unshaded in the table below.


WARNING: The following new estates forms came into effect on January 1, 2022: 74A, 74B, 74C, 74D, 74E, 74F, 74G, 74H, 74I, 74J, 74K, 74L, 74M, 74N, 74O, 74P, 74.1A, 74.1B, 74.1C, 74.1E, 74.1F, 75.1, 75.8.

The old estate court forms will not be accepted for filing, with two exceptions: the Affidavit of Execution of Will or Codicil (74.8) and Affidavit of Condition of Will or Codicil (74.10) forms.

A table comparing the old and new forms and describing the changes can be found here. The table also outlines the amendments to the estate court rules that came into effect on January 1, 2022 through O. Reg. 709/21. The rule and form changes are summarized on the Ontario Regulatory Registry at: 1-MAG-038.


Electronic versions of forms under the Rules of Civil Procedure, R.R.O. 1990, Regulation 194, are available in the table below. Please note that to complete your court document, you may need to combine several of the forms listed below.


Many of the Rules of Civil Procedure forms contain the phrase “General heading”. General headings are separate forms which must be inserted where this phrase appears (Form 4A for actions, and Form 4B for applications). Also, most court documents must also end with a “backsheet” (Form 4C). For example, a typical Statement of Claim requires the following combination of forms:

  • Form 4A - General Heading (for actions),
  • Form 14A - Statement of Claim, and
  • Form4C - Backsheet.

Your completed form should be in 12 point (or 10 pitch) size, or neatly printed, with double spaces between the lines and a left-hand margin approximately 40 mm wide. See Rule 4 of the Rules of Civil Procedure for further requirements.

The Rules of Civil Procedure allow many civil court forms to be filed electronically through the Civil Claims Online Portal or submitted through the Civil Submissions Online Portal. To learn which forms may be filed or submitted electronically through these portals, refer to the Rules of Civil Procedure and the Ontario government website at File Civil Case Documents Online.

Documents that are required to be filed under the Rules of Civil Procedure can also be filed in hardcopy at the court counter and in some cases by mail or by email. To determine the appropriate method of filing of your documents refer to the Rules of Civil Procedure and Superior Court of Justice Notices to the Profession and the Public.

Documents in an Application for a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee or Small Estate Certificate can now be filed by email to the appropriate estate court office. To learn more about how to file these documents by email, review the Superior Court of Justice Notice to the Profession, Parties, Public and the Media.

Jurats on affidavits and probate applications

Three jurats now appear on the prescribed form of affidavit and probate applications. The applicable jurat section should be completed. The two non-applicable jurats can be removed from the form. Alternatively, all three jurats can remain on the completed form with the appropriate jurat section completed. In this case, it is not necessary to strike the two non-applicable jurats on the form.


Pre-formatted, Fillable Estates Forms

Many of the estates forms under Rule 74 of the Rules of Civil Procedure are provided below in a fillable format.

The formatting complies with the standards set out in Rule 4. Please note that these forms contain check boxes. To put an X in a check box: Double-click on the box. In the menu that pops up, under Default Value, click “Checked.” Click "OK." Click the following link to return to the table containing all prescribed forms under the Rules of Civil Procedure.

These forms also contain rows to provide information. You can add as many rows as required. To add a row, click “enable editing” in the top toolbar. Then select a row, right click on your mouse, select “insert rows above” or “insert rows below”.

To calculate the amount of estate administration tax to be paid on a specific estate, use the estate administration tax calculator.
