Homologation of mandate in anticipation of incapacity

In Quebec, having a mandate homologated is the only way it can legally become enforceable. This process must involve at least one medical practitioner, one social worker and a notary accredited by the Chamber of Notaries to certify incapacity and thus, to effectuate.

Quebec’s code of Civil Procedure imparts accredited notaries to make the process of homologation easier, quicker and cheaper than any other alternative route or process.

In the case of anticipated personal incapacity, your notary is the only person who can fully represent your wishes and ensure your personal protection and needs are met.
