The representation Agreement Act allows a person to appoint someone as their legal representative to handle financial, legal, personal care and health care decisions, if the appointee is unable to make them on their own. The document is called a representation agreement, and it creates a contract between the person and their representative.
There are two types. One is known as a Section 7 limited agreement to cover straightforward, everyday decisions. The other is a Section 9 general agreement to deal with complex legal, personal care and health care matters.
