A parent's will states property be divided upon death, but later parent adds only one beneficiary of the will as co-tenant to the property. What happens then?

I am a non-resident of Canada but I have Canadian citizenship and passport.
I am co-tenants with my parents on a residential single detached home. I plan
on returning to live in Vancouver before my parents pass away and become a
resident of Canada again. If I am still a non-resident of Canada before my
parents pass away, what kind of taxes am I looking at as a non-resident that
inherited this property?

Furthermore, my parents had written a will to separate their estate among
my siblings and I before they put me on as co-tenant with them on this
single detached home. Does the will have priority, or the fact that I am the only one
signed on as co-tenant with my parents, have priority?
