Do you have a Will? Do you have a Power of Attorney (POA)? Who will be making decisions on your behalf when you are no longer mentally capable to make those decisions?

April is the Ontario Bar Association’s (OBA) Make a Power of Attorney (POA) Month. This public education campaign, in association with the Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) is aimed at encouraging Ontarians to make a POA to ensure that health related wishes are honoured, and to register consent for organ and tissue donation. Take part in our Spring into Action POA Giveaway contest, which we are proud to have launched in support of this great campaign!

You could win a Will and Power of Attorney from Nelligan O’Brien Payne’s Wills and Estates Law Group* (see details below)!

The contest will run for five weeks in April, on the Wills and Estates Law blog, published by our Wills and Estates Law Group. Visit the blog at: www.willsandestateslaw.ca/e/blog.cfm.

To participate in the Spring into Action POA Giveaway contest, all you have to do is read our weekly blog posts from April 4th to April 29th 2014 and answer a quiz question.

You will have one week from the date of posting of the quiz question to submit your answer through our online form. Each correct answer submitted before the deadline gives you one entry in the draw to win a Will and Power of Attorney. The winner will be chosen at random from the entries submitted over the five weeks, and will be required to answer a skill testing question. The more entries received the better chance you have of winning!

* The contest winner will win a Will and Power of Attorney up to a value of $650.00 plus HST from the Wills and Estates Law Group at Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP. Full Contest Rules will be available on the blog on April 2nd. The winner will be announced in our April 30th blog post.
