For Certificate Issuers

The LPA Certificate Issuer​​

The role of the LPA Certificate Issuer (CI) is an important one as he/she acts as a safeguard to ensure:​

a) the Donor understands the purpose of the LPA and scope of authority conferred under it;

b) no fraud or undue pressure is being used to induce the Donor to create an LPA; and

c) there is nothing else that will prevent an LPA from being created.

This role of the CI remains the same for LPAs made via OPGO. CIs must certify the LPA in the physical presence of the Donor.

CIs should note the following key changes for the LPA certification process in OPGO:​
