e-Learning: POA:Learning about Attorney’s duties

Momiji / JSS Present:

Wed. Sep 28, 2022, 3:00 – 4:00 pm

1-hour online session (Zoom) to learn about Power of Attorney from an estate lawyer practicing in Ontario, will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS), in Japanese.

What is this session about?

”I know I need a POA (Power of Attorney) in case I lose the ability to make decisions, but what does POA actually do?” This is a frequently asked question JSS & Momiji receive.
In this seminar, an estate lawyer Nozomi (Zoe) Smith, who teaches our annual POA & Will seminar, will take a deep dive into POA. This is a valuable opportunity for those who gives someone power of attorney and those who are assigned as POA to learn about the actions required for property management and personal care as POA.
Momiji and JSS have seen many cases in which the lack of POA has caused great difficulties. We hope that many people will learn about the importance of POA through this seminar to resolve their questions and concerns.

Because of time restraints, the seminar will not discuss the basics of POA. It is recommended that you have a basic knowledge of POA before the seminar.
