The first acts for you with respect to finances, the second with respect to your medical and housing needs. If you haven’t already assigned someone as your Power of Attorney, it is probably the right time to do so. You can assign each Power of Attorney to the same individual or to different people. Those you appoint should be individuals you trust, who know your preferences and will act upon them, even in stressful situations.
You can obtain a copy of the Power of Attorney kit by contacting:
Ministry of the Attorney General Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee
595 Bay Street, Suite 800, Toronto, ON M5G 2M6
The Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee is also available to advise you if you do not have a designated Power of Attorney.
