Presumption of survivorship, Financial Accounting


Where two or more persons have died in circumstances rendering it uncertain which of them survived the other or others, the deaths shall, for all purposes of the Succession Act, be presumed to have occurred in order or seniority, and accordingly the younger shall be deemed to have survived the older; however, in the case of spouses who die in these circumstances, the spouses shall be presumed to have died simultaneously.
