Is mother still living?
Ok, then while mother is living, those documents are completely confidential and only mother can decide who gets to see them. She can alter or revoke them at any time up until her death, at which point they would become fixed and an heir would have the right to request a copy of them once any will was admitted to probate. They would have a right to a copy of any trust immediately upon the death of the maker.
So right now, you don't have a legal right to see the documents unless mother allows it.
Sorry, I just noticed this was a Canada law question... have to opt out in favor of a Canada law expert.
Actually the best moderator in the world just contacted me and said this wasn't a Canada law question at all and it was miscategorized..
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
