How is this document different from, or similar to, a will or a power of attorney?

A will sets out instructions for what happens when you die. A power of attorney in BC is limited to making decisions that are not for your personal or health care. A representation agreement is a legally binding document in which you appoint another person or persons to speak with medical and health care representatives your behalf and make decisions on your behalf. The doctors or caregivers are legally obligated to follow the decisions of the appointed person, even if this person is refusing care or making end-of-life decisions for you.
