SUPPOSE YOU HAVE A HEART ATTACK OR A STROKE. OR YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND ARE UNABLE TO LOOK AFTER YOUR AFFAIRS?
You must have arrangements for a trusted person to handle them for you.
You do this by creating a Power of Attorney designating a trusted person to manage your affairs, and any and all financial decisions while you cannot.
The person you want to act in your name, must have a legally binding, properly signed and witnessed Power Of Attorney to act on your behalf.
You can only give this authority by naming someone to act for you in a continuing Power of Attorney for Property. CanLaw's Power of Attorney kit contains all you need to do this vital document. You should have it prepared and available in advance of need.
If You Are Unable To Act For Yourself, All Your Financial Assets Will Be Frozen
Many people wrongly believe that their spouse, a friend or family member can act for them if something happens and they are unable to make decisions for themselves.
This is not true. If you are unable to act for yourself, all your financial assets will be frozen and the government may step in and appoint a stranger to control your assets.
What If You Are Disabled?
Who will pay your bills and your taxes?
Who will pay for your family's food?
Who will look after your bank accounts?
Who will manage your real estate and investments?
Who will make decisions if your beloved pet needs emergency vet care?
