Is you father mentally competent at this point in time?
Then the continuing POA would not apply as that is for when your father becomes incompetent only.
As he is competent he simply has to sign a new POA for you but he has to sign a general POA and not the continuing POA form for things you are to help with now.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
No. He does not have to go through a lawyer.If you send him the form from your province then he can sign it they are and send it back. He will just need a witness.
You should contact the CIC because they are responsible for work permits.If you want to speak to someone about the taxes you can call the Canada revenue agency.
I am very sorry about that. From time to time the site seems to have some sort of glitch and answers from one customer appear on another's post.There is no government branch that would deal with this in Ontario when your father is competent. I why do you feel you need the government's assistance? Is it to get the correct form for example?
There is no registry for POAs.
And as I've already explained even if you found that POA it cannot be used now. It can only be triggered when your father is determined to be incompetent.
If this is for a bank the bank will have it's own form.
If it is for a real estate matter then you would need to get a specific form from the lawyer who is going to assist you with this.
