Changes to Incapacity Planning Legislation and new Standard Forms

Amendments to the legislation in British Columbia, including the Power of Attorney Act, and the Representation Agreement Act are now in force. They came into effect on September 1, 2011 (while I was on holidays).

The changes will require some changes in the forms used for enduring powers of attorney and representation agreements in British Columbia. The Ministry of the Attorney General has published some standard forms, which you may access from here.

The forms are not mandatory, and are not appropriate in all circumstances. I am working on modified forms for my clients.
