For example, these forms provide for the appointment of a single representative or lawyer acting at the same time. There are also many other options in the legislation that are not reflected in these forms: for example, the nature of the authority that can be granted or when the document will come into force. Generally speaking, the types of decisions you can authorize your representative to in a Section 7 agreement are important, but generally not as intrusive or potentially controversial as those that can be included in a Section 9 agreement.

(b) an alternate representative shall be designated in the agreement and shall be ready and able to act as a representative.
