What jurisdiction does the Court have to supervise the management of an estate?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Class v. Smith, 2018 ONSC 623 (CanLII):

The court has broad and inherent powers to supervise the management of estates and to control its own processes. The court may draw upon its inherent jurisdiction, where appropriate, to ensure fairness to the parties so that justice can be done in the proceeding. The court's inherent jurisdiction exists in parallel with the court's statutory powers to ensure fairness and practicality are maintained while litigation proceeds: see Mayer v. Rubin, 2017 ONSC 3498 (CanLII), 30 E.T.R. (4th) 239.
