Under an expanded representation agreement, you can give someone expanded decision-making powers. These include anything that falls under standard competences and additional powers. However, decision-making focuses on only two of the four areas: health and personal care. For example: 24 (1) If a representative acting within the jurisdiction given in a contract of representation does not know and could not reasonably have known that the agreement or a provision thereof is not effective or invalid, Section 9 deals with non-standard representation agreements for all matters relating to personal care and health care. 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. If, in accordance with BC`s laws, you want to ensure that the person or persons of your choice are able to make decisions about your personal and health care, if you become mentally incapable at any time, you will need to enter into a representation agreement. If you wish, you can also give your designated persons the power to make decisions regarding your legal and routine financial affairs in your representation contract (and, under current legislation, important financial decisions such as the sale of your home). The extent of your representative`s powers depends on the powers you give them in your representation agreement.
