Enduring Powers of Attorney

Year: 
2008
Description: 

A power of attorney is an instrument under which a person (the donor) confers upon 
another person the power to manage the donor's property and financial affairs. An enduring 
power of attorney (EPA) continues in effect during, or comes into effect on, the subsequent 
mental incompetence of the donor. The WCLRA report makes several recommendations for 
legislative reform in the four western provinces to increase consistency in respect of EPAs and 
to facilitate the recognition of EPAs among the provinces.
