In case of incapacity, a tutor must be designated to represent you (different protective regimes exist). Without a protective mandate, it is the dispositions of the Civil Code of Quebec that apply for this designation, and the whole court procedure can be very long and costly. The protective mandate hence allows you to choose the person(s) who will take care of you but also to regulate their powers.
If you are thinking of writing your protective mandate, contact us!
