New Resources at CPLEA – Vol. 41:5


LawNow has created a Department called New Resources at CPLEA,  which is now a permanent addition to each issue.   Each post will highlight new materials at CPLEA. All resources are free and available for download. We hope that this will raise awareness of the many resources that CPLEA produces to further our commitment to public legal education in Alberta. For a listing of all CPLEA resources go to:

CPLEA has recently developed a set of three resources about Powers of Attorney.  The first booklet, General  Powers of Attorney, discusses the uses and limitations of this document and stresses the fact that once the maker loses capacity, a General Power of Attorney ceases to be valid.  Our second booklet in the set describes why,  when and how  to make an Enduring Power of Attorney. Our third resource outlines the role and responsibilities  of the Attorney under an Enduring Power of Attorney. Taken together, we hope that these materials answer many common questions that the public asks about Powers of Attorney.
