Changes to BC’s Power of Attorney Legislation

September 8, 2011

As expected, on September 1, 2011, new provincial power of attorney legislation came into effect.

Here are a few resources that support the new legislation:

  • It’s Your Choice: Personal Planning Tools (a guide from the Public Guardian & Trustee)
  • Incapacity Planning Agreements (forms and directives from the Attorney General)
  • Nidus Personal Planning Resource Centre and Registry

A Pacific Business & Law Institute conference entitled “The New Power of Attorney Legislation: Practical Challenges” will be held December 1, 2011. CLE BC also ran a course entitled “Incapacity Planning: The New Law” which is now available as a webinar.
