Section 9 deals with non-standard representation agreements for all personal care and health matters. Section 10 states that to enter into this type of agreement, you must understand the nature and consequences of the document when you create it. As part of this type of agreement, you can give general or specific powers. A representative with general powers may give or refuse authorization for health care, including health care necessary to sustain life. A representation agreement is the only way to authorize someone – named your representative – to support you or act on your behalf for health and body care matters. Some might use a representation agreement to cover routine financial and legal matters. 26 (1) A person designated in a representation contract as a representative, assistant representative or monitor is not entitled to remuneration for the activity of representative or monitor unless you may also designate an alternate representative. This is someone who can intervene if your first representative is no longer willing or able to act for you. If you appoint an assistant representative, you must say when the representative can act in place of the representative.
20 (1) A monitor designated or designated by an adult shall endeavour to determine whether a representative of the adult complies with section 16. 2.
