A power of attorney is a legal document where you appoint another person, called an attorney, to make legal and personal decisions on your behalf. In Ontario, there are two different powers of attorney, one to deal with financial and legal issues (called a continuing power of attorney for property), and one to deal with personal and health issues (called a power of attorney for personal care).
These documents are essential should you become incompetent to manage your own affairs because of illness or injury, or if you are incapable of communicating your wishes to your health care providers.
