There are drawbacks to not having a replacement agreement and simply relying on this „standard list“ of people who make health decisions for you if you become incapable. You have no control over who ends up making health decisions, because the „standard list“ must be followed in the right order, and you don`t have to end up having the person you want to decide for you. In addition, there are certain limits to the types of health care that alternative decisions, decision makers on your behalf can accept, and their authority is temporary. In addition, the „standard list“ applies only to health care decisions – it does not apply to health care decisions. (a) keep accounts and other records of the exercise of the representative`s powers in the context of the representation agreement; and 21 (1) At the request of a representative or other interested person, the public custodian and the agent may appoint a monitor; replace a monitor referred to in a representation agreement or designated in accordance with this section or section 30, paragraph 3 (g.1) where, in accordance with Section 29, a representation agreement ends in some cases, even if you or the agent dies, if the agent becomes unfit or if you are declared incapacitated by a BC court and the court does not allow the representation agreement to continue. c) the establishment, the use or revocation of a representation agreement or any change to a representation agreement are clearly contrary to the wishes, values, beliefs or current interests of the adult who has concluded, revoked or amended the agreement(3) Persons affected in sub-section 2 are not obliged to be present together when they sign the representation agreement and one or more of them may sign in return.

Often, a person who is not legally in a position to enter into an agreement with the provisions of Section 9 is still in a position to enter into an agreement in accordance with Section 7. A Section 7 agreement is generally sufficient to cover your daily care needs. Under BC, you can also enter into an agreement under Section 7 if you are no longer able to make other legal decisions or manage your health care, health care, legal or financial affairs. Your representative must also keep a thorough record of the activities carried out on your behalf and provide you with the recordings, to you, your monitor and/or to the public custodian and agent upon request.

If your representative has the right to carry out your financial affairs in your representation contract, he or she must normally separate your assets from his or hers. As noted above, if you do not have a mandate, representation agreement or other legal document that appoints someone who makes your financial decisions for you, if you become mentally incompetent, then your loved ones must go to court to obtain legal authority to deal with your affairs (what is called „committee“). Going to court can cost your loved ones a prohibitive price. If you do not have relatives who can go to court for a „commission,“ then the Public Guardian and the agent will intervene to find an appropriate replacement decision and obtain a court decision so that this person can be designated as a „committee.“ The extent of your representative`s powers depends on the powers you give them in your representative consent. In planning for a possible future disability, people often opt for two legal documents: a power that gives the person of their choice (his „lawyer“) the power to settle his financial and legal affairs, and a representation agreement that gives the person of his choice (his „representative“) the power to make personal and health decisions on his behalf.
