Enduring Powers of Attorney
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.
