Enduring power of attorney for finances
A Power of Attorney will enable someone you trust to deal with your finances in your stead when you are not available or in the event you are incapable for medical reasons.
Ensure your wishes are followed
A Power of Attorney is a component of estate planning. It can help to ensure things go according to your wishes as much as possible, both for your benefit and for the benefit of those you love, even when you can no longer ensure it yourself.
If you have not made a Power of Attorney and are not able to deal with finances yourself, it would be very difficult or impossible for someone else to do it for you. In that instance it is necessary to apply to the BC Supreme Court for an Order appointing a Committee, who may not deal with your finances the way you would yourself or may not know how you wanted your finances managed.
