Our Legal Advice/Assistance services are only available to Ontario residents with legal problems that concern Ontario law.
You use an Enduring Power of Attorney to give authority to a representative, called an Attorney. This Attorney will have the ability to make decisions on your behalf with regard to your finances and property. This applies while you are still alive, in situations where you are out of the country, physically incapacitated, or mentally incapable. The Attorney will not have the ability to make health care decisions on your behalf.
A Court may appoint a substitute decision-maker to replace your Attorney under certain circumstances.
