If the deceased does not leave a legal Will and has stated their fiance is their 'next of kin' is the fiance entitled to the deceased's estate in Alberta Canada?

The province will have specific rules of intestacy (an estate

without a will). In most place the fiancee has no legal standing to

claim anything. Being listed as Next of Kin on forms does not

provide a legal status of any type.
