Incapable, but no mandate?

(September 28, 2016) What would happen if you became incapable without having a protection mandate? Once your incapacity has been confirmed by a physician and a social worker, it’s too late to prepare a mandate. This document must be drawn up while you are completely lucid. However, the law provides for alternatives for incapable persons who require protection. In the absence of a protection mandate, the court or a notary will call a meeting of relatives or friends to designate the person who will take care of you and your property. If no one you know can or wants to act as your tutor or curator, this responsibility will fall to the Curateur public. Follow the example of 2.8 million Québecers and prepare your protection mandate—the best way to make sure your wishes about your person and property are respected in the event you become incapacitated. Click here to begin preparing your mandate.
