Acting as an Executor or Attorney: Starting Out on the Right Foot

One of the questions we often get asked by people who are planning their estates or for incapacity is who they should appoint to be the executors of their will or their substitute decision makers if they become incapable. (In Ontario, substitute decision makers during incapacity are known as attorneys for property or personal care if appointed by the individual in a power of attorney or guardians for property or personal care if appointed by the Court - see our Client Advisory Powers of Attorney for more information).
