General Information on Powers Of Attorney

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document that you sign to give another person the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf about your financial affairs, which may include accounts you have with us.
The general information we provide about POAs is not a substitute for getting independent legal advice for your own particular situation. Provincial and territory laws in Canada will apply to any POAs so it is important to understand the applicable laws before making any decisions about using a POA for your financial matters.
