Continuing power of attorney

A continuing power of attorney mandate is a more flexible option for organising the management of affairs than guardianship. By providing continuing power of attorney, a person can prepare in advance for the management of their affairs in the event that they are at a later time unable to manage them themselves. In a continuing power of attorney, the person (donor) appoints a donee to manage their affairs. Power of attorney will enter into force after the guardianship authority has verified it.
