My father passed away due to cancer and just wanted to know if I would still be able to get the funds from the account if it's not even a joint account.

In reply to Dom, Toronto
We appreciate you coming by TD Helps this morning, Dom. We are sorry to hear about the passing of your father and we hope you and your family is doing well.
In the unfortunate event of a Customer’s death, it is important for TD Bank to assist the family and/or the Executor/Administrator with our Customer’s account(s). An Executor or an Administrator of a decedent’s estate may access the account. In order to access the account or close the account of the deceased Customer, the Executor or Administrator must provide the following documentations to a TD Bank Store:
Photo identification, Copy of the Death Certificate, and an original Certificate of Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration with raised seal dated within 60 days; and a Letter of Instructions signed by all the Executors or Administrators with signature guaranteed by another financial institution. The death certificate will provide date of death if the date-of-death balance for the account is requested.
Please keep in mind; these documents do vary by State. Therefore, we recommend you visit a TD Bank Store or give us a call directly at 888-751-9000 to speak with a Customer Service Representative for further information. For locations and hours, please visit, http://bit.ly/TDStores.
Also, we see that you're writing in from Toronto, if your father's account is held at TD Canada Trust, please take a look here for details that could help: http://bit.ly/1LrbxjF. You're also welcome to submit your own question via their TD Helps page here: http://bit.ly/1qHQQns.
We hope this was helpful information, Dom. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions.
