Making a Power of Attorney means you can name a person you trust to act for you when you are not able to. These downloadable Manitoba forms let you make and revoke (if necessary) a Power of Attorney.
The Powers of Attorney Act is the legislation that governs the creation, revocation, interpretation and application of powers of attorney in the Province of Manitoba. It provides for both springing and enduring powers of attorney.
A springing power of attorney comes into effect at some later date or after a specified event has happened (such as if you were to be declared mentally incapacitated). An enduring power of attorney is immediately effective and remains in effect even if you become incapacitated at a future time.

You should also give a copy to any banks, financial institutions, medical facilities, etc. that had a copy of your original Power of Attorney.
