When does an Enduring Power of Attorney begin to operate?

An enduring power of attorney begins to operate after being registered at the Land Titles Office. Your signed enduring power of attorney remains inactive until you instruct us to have it legally registered.

If you suddenly are incapable of managing your financial affairs due to illness or injury, your attorney can register your enduring power of attorney for you. They will then begin acting to protect your financial interests. Another reason might also be that you simply no longer want the responsibility of managing your financial affairs.

Until your enduring power of attorney is activated, you will maintain full and independent financial control.  However, you can have peace of mind knowing that in your time of need there will be immediate access to essential assistance.
