You Need Two Independent Witnesses to Sign Your Will:

According to the current laws in most provinces, in order to be a legal document your Will must be signed in the presence of at least two independent witnesses, and the two witnesses must also sign your Will, in the presence of the "testator" (yourself) and in the presence of each other. It is a good idea to use a coloured ink so it is clear that the signatures are not photocopies.

You and the witnesses should also initial each page, so that it is not possible to alter any pages after the Will has been signed.

In most jurisdictions, a witness cannot be a beneficiary of the Will, they cannot be the spouse of a beneficiary (at the time of signing), they cannot be a minor, and, like the "testator" (you), they must be of sound mind.
