What is the Wills and Succession Act in Canada?

Steve Grover: 

In the province of Alberta where I practice, and I have my office here in Calgary, the Wills and Succession Act is sort of if you don't have a will, by legislation the government will determine how your estate is distributed, and you may have to go through the process of getting the grant administration application approved by the court. Once again, I recommend people when they're still alive, go out and get a will, go out and get a Power of Attorney personal director, spend that extra $800,000 just to have determination of where your estate goes when you pass on unfortunately.
