Note: A "power of attorney for property" is different from a "power of attorney for personal care" (sometimes called a "proxy," "directive," "personal directive," or "representation agreement," depending on your province or territory). Powers of attorney for personal care are required in the event that the person in your care no longer has the ability to make their own decisions. Powers of attorney for personal care may be more common in situations of mental health issues or cognitive decline. These should be discussed with your family doctor or a legal advisor.
