Legal/Estate Planning

Wills (CA)- What is a will? A written legal document setting out what is to happen after death to his/her property and who will be guardian of children. A will must be in writing and should be dated and properly witnessed.
 
Powers of Attorney (Ontario) (ON)- In Ontario there are two types of Powers of Attorney people need. A Power of Attorney for Personal Property is a legal document giving another person the authority to make decisions about your finances and property if you become unable to make those decisons yourself. A Power of Attorney for Personal Care gives someone else the authority to make decisions about your personal care i.e. medical, health and safety etc. if you become mentally incapable of making those decisions yourself. Both documents are important and necessary for all adults to have.
 
Who Decides When You Can't? (ON)- Personal Choice. Self-determination.  Your right to decide about your own care; where you want to live; what you want to eat; who you want to look after you; where to spend your money "these choices and our ability to make them for ourselves, allow us to feel in control of our own life. They are the things most people take for granted; the things we think we will always be able to do for ourselves. But, what if one day you can't?"
