Legal matters related to end-of-life such as Wills and Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a legal document naming a specific person to act on your behalf (sometimes called a substitute decision maker) in case you become incapable of making your own decisions. There are three kinds of Power of Attorney: personal care (health care and housing); continuing property (financial affairs); non-continuing property (short-term management of financial affairs). Please refer to the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General (Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee) for more information.
