When you want to appoint someone to make health care decisions for you should you become incapacitated, you will need a representation agreement. You must be at least 19 years old to do so. The person you name in the agreement will have the authority to direct your health care, and provide medical consents on your behalf should you become unable to do so yourself.
Two types of representation agreements exist: a “section 9 “and a “section 7” agreement which refer to specific sections within the legislation. The section 9 agreement is for those adults who are considered to be capable of understanding the “nature and consequence” of the proposed agreement they are signing while a section 7 can be used by those with a diminished mental capacity or ability to understand what is being proposed.
