Join Ken Kramer Q.C. and Audrey Jun on May 3rd to learn about Representation Agreements.

Get your affairs in order. Learn about the essential legal documents in BC to plan for incapacity and end-of-life. This presentation will provide an overview of Representation Agreements and Enduring Powers of Attorney.  How can you plan for incapacity and other support needs? Learn about Representation Agreements – the only legal document in BC to plan for health care and personal care matters. What do they mean for adults and their families?  Enduring Powers of Attorney or a Representation Agreement with authority for routine finances are legal documents in BC adults may use to plan for incapacity, end-of-life, and other support needs. If there are no arrangements in place, adults can lose their rights through adult guardianship, called Committeeship in BC. Find out how adult guardianship is the LAST RESORT in BC.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Differentiating between a section 7 vs. section 9 Representation Agreement
  • Differentiating a Representation Agreement from a Power Of Attorney
  • Understanding the relevance and importance of capacity to develop the referenced documents
  • What is Private Committeeship and what does it involve
  • Learning steps that families can take to avoid the need for Private Committeeship.
