3. An adult who, under paragraph 1, is not required to designate a monitor may choose to designate as a monitor, in a performance agreement, a person who meets the conditions set out in paragraph 4. 4. To be designated as a custodian in a representation contract, a person must be at least 19 years of age and be willing and able to perform the duties and exercise the powers of a custodian. When an adult in BC is unable to give or refuse to accept health care, there is, in accordance with BC laws, a standard list of “substitution decisions” that can accept medical treatment and make decisions on behalf of the incompetent adult if the adult has not appointed a representative to make decisions in a health representation agreement, and no commission has been appointed. Section 9 of the Act allows you to enter into a representation agreement that gives your representative the authority to make medical and other decisions that are very important to you, including the decision to refuse hantilian treatment. Among the things you can allow your representative in an agreement in section 9, there is the possibility: if you do not want your representation agreement to come into effect immediately, you must indicate in your agreement the “triggering event” that will bring the agreement into effect and how the event will be confirmed and by whom. For example, you could expect your agreement to take effect if your family doctor thinks – or if some trusted friends agree together – that you are no longer able to make decisions. An agreement with “limited powers” – sometimes referred to as a representation agreement under Section 7 – and an agreement that contains “general powers” – sometimes referred to as a representation agreement under Section 9. Generally speaking, the types of decisions you can authorize your representative to in a Section 7 agreement are important, but generally not as intrusive or potentially controversial as those that can be included in a Section 9 agreement. A Section 7 agreement is usually sufficient to meet your routine care needs. 5.
A person designated as an instructor in a performance agreement must complete a monitor`s certificate as prescribed. 2. At the request of a mandatary, the Tribunal may give instructions or issue an opinion on the interpretation of a provision of a contract of representation. . . .
