What is a protection mandate?
A protection mandate is a document that allows you to name someone who will take care of you and your property when you can not do it by yourself. It has to be drawn up while you are lucid, and still able to make decisions for yourself. Your mandatary has to be someone in whom you fully trust. The protection mandate can contain, among other things, your directives concerning your well-being, the administration of your property, the designation of a legal guardian for your children, the salary of your mandatary, and your advance medical directives.
It is always possible to modify your protection mandate while you are still fit for it. Note that the protection mandate does not replace, in any case, your will. Contact Robert Piché to obtain more information and to draw up your protection mandate.
What is a power of attorney?
It is important not to mistake the power of attorney with a protection mandate. In a power of attorney, you choose a person of trust to act on your behalf in some circumstances. Your mandatary can, for instance, pay your bills, sell your goods, and administer your property. Your power of attorney can be verbal or written, but the best way to avoid bad surprises is to opt for a notarized power of attorney.
