    What is a power of attorney?

    The completion of a power of attorney allows you to authorize someone to act on your behalf when you are unable to do something yourself due to your location, a family vacation, a scheduling conflict, a physical disability or old age.
    A power of attorney outlines the circumstances for which the person you have designated to represent you is representing you and also determines for how long.

    Power of Attorney vs Mandate in Case of Incapability

    While a power of attorney allows a person of sound mind to designate another to act on his behalf in various situations such as during a vacation or a physical disability. A power of attorney is valid only when the legal TESTATOR is in wholly possession of his mental faculties. If the PRINCIPAL becomes incapable, the power of attorney is revoked and a mandate in case of incapacity is required to give someone else the opportunity to act on their behalf and to manage the assets in question.
    A mandate in case of incapacity is created by a person of sound mind authorizing someone to act on one’s behalf should that person become incapacitated. An incapable person is unable to be autonomous or manage his/her own affairs. In a mandate, an “Agent” is elected to take care of your physical and/or mental well-being or even your home when you can not do it yourself.

    Questions? We've Got Answers!

    What is the purpose of a Power of Attorney?

    A Power of Attorney allows you to authorize someone else to act in your name when you are unable to do so yourself for reasons such as distance, a trip or old age. A Power of Attorney puts in writing circumstances in which a person you designate can represent you as well as the length of this representation.

    What is the difference between a mandate in the case of inaptitude and Power of Attorney?

    A Power of Attorney is created to authorize another person to act on their behalf in diverse situations such as paying rent, withdrawing money, recovering money or signing contracts.  A Power of Attorney is not used because you are unfit to govern your own affairs but because something such as a trip, a temporary handicap or other setback is prohibiting you from completing certain tasks.  
    Additionally the rules which apply to a mandate in case of inaptitude are different. A mandate in the case of inaptitude is created by a person who is mentally apt (Mandator) who authorizes someone to act in their name (Mandatary) in a case that the Mandator becomes mentally unfit, which would signify that he or she are incapable of being autonomous in the governance of his or her affairs. In the case of a mandate, the Mandatary is appointed to take care of the physical and mental well-being and or the property of the Mandator when a situation arises where that person would not be able to do so him or herself.

    What is the difference between a mandate in case of inaptitude and a will?

    A will is a judicial act that constitutes the last wishes’ of a person relative to the division of their property and assets, to the custody of their children (if the children are minors), in addition to specific choices relative to the decedent’s funeral and burial arrangements. A will applies only at the moment of death of the Testator.
    The rules which apply to a mandate in case une incapacity are different. A mandate in case of incapacity is created by a person who is mentally apte and authorises someone else to act in their name in the case where they would become mentally unfit, which means that they are unable to be autonomous or to govern their affairs. In the case of a contract, a Mandatary, or “Mandatary”,  is named to take care of their and mental well-being, their property and assets of the Mandator once the he or she is no longer able to do so him or herself.

    What happens if I become mentally unfit and I have not yet created a mandate in the case of inaptitude?

    If you or your belongings need to be protected and you do not have a mandate in case of incapacity, anyone in your entourage, such as your partner, family members, or friends may ask the court to set up a protection regime for your benefit.  Depending on the case, a counselor, tutor or curator can be appointed to ensure your well-being and manage your affairs.  

    Who can act as a Mandatary?

    You may choose anyone to act as your Mandatary – a family member, friend or even a professional. However, given the fact that you are granting this person the power to represent you, be sure to choose someone you trust.

    Do I need to pay my Mandatary?

    It is not mandatory to pay your Mandatary. On the other hand, because the Mandatary is performing a service for you, remuneration can act as a good motivator.

    What are the responsibilities of the Mandatary towards the Mandator ?

    A mandate in case of incapacity is a contract between a Mandator and a Mandatary which requires that the Mandatary respect certain obligations. For example, the Mandatary must:  

    • Keep the Mandator informed as to the administration of their affairs.
    • Act with reliability and caution and in the best interests of the Mandator.
    • Complete all tasks stipulated in the contract, unless there is a clause which allows them to delegate or obtain assistance to realize these goals.

    What are the responsibilities of the Mandator towards the Mandatary?

    The Mandator has obligations towards the Mandatary notably:

    • To pay the Mandatary if the contract stipulates it, or to compensate the Mandatary in the case of a loss if he or she is not responsible.
    • Pay for or reimburse all the fees which arise due to the execution of the contract.
    • Contribute to the realization of the duties contract if the Mandatary so requests.
    • Be responsible for all the actions of the Mandatary according to the terms of the contract.

    What happens if my Mandatary oversteps the terms of the mandate I entrust to them?

    If you grant the Mandatary rights in your name and he or she does something outside of the limits you set forth that causes damage to you or your property, the Mandatary can be held responsible for his or her actions.

    When does a Power of Attorney come to an end?

    The stipulations in a Power of Attorney defines a specific duration for which the Mandatary holds the rights of representation. In general, a Power of Attorney ends at the expiry date of the contract. However, four (4) other situations can end one of these contracts.  

    1. If the  duties stipulated in the Power of Attorney are fully realized by the Mandatary before the expiry date.
    2. If elements of the contract are impossible to complete.
    3. If one or both parties passes away or goes bankrupt.
    4. If the contract is revoked by the Mandator or if the Mandatary renounces his obligation.  

    What happens to Power of Attorney once one of the parties becomes mentally unfit?

    In simple terms, if a Mandatary becomes mentally unfit, the Power of Attorney is revoked.
    A Power of Attorney can be signed and granted only by a person who is mentally fit. If he or she becomes mentally unfit, the Power of Attorney will remain valid only until a Mandate in Case of Incapacity is homologated (becomes activated in place of the Power of Attorney) if one has been created.   

    What must I do to revoke a Power of Attorney?

    You can decide to cancel a Power of Attorney at any time. To do so, you must be in possession of the document, inscribe the end date and provide a copy to the Mandatary. On the other hand, if you revoke a Power of Attorney, you need to have a valid reason and this revocation must harm the Mandatary in any way, as if such occurs. You risk possible lawsuit.
