The Powers of Attorney Act (consolidated) was enacted to regulate how persons appointed as attorneys must exercise their authority, and to stipulate the requirements for making and terminating a power of attorney.
Nunavut law allows for both enduring and springing powers of attorney. A springing power of attorney comes into effect on the date or upon the occurrence of an event specified in the document. An enduring power of attorney is effective immediately and remains in effect notwithstanding that the donor may later become mentally incapable.
You must be at least 19 years of age to make a power of attorney in Nunavut.
