Claiming Canadian Money From Dead Relatives

Search for Canadian unclaimed balances:

An “unclaimed balance” is a Canadian-dollar deposit or negotiable instrument, issued or held by a federally regulated bank or trust company.
When there has been no owner activity in relation to the balance for a period of 10 years, and the owner cannot be contacted by the institution holding it, the balance is turned over to the Bank of Canada, which acts as custodian on behalf of the owner.

That’s an interesting service. I wonder if it’s abused often.
