Authorization or Power of Attorney

Person granting an authorization or power of attorney

You can give someone permission to represent you by granting them an authorization or power of attorney.

With an authorization, the person can view confidential information and documents we have on file for you.

With a power of attorney, the person can not only view confidential information and documents, but also act on your behalf. For example, they can negotiate with us on your behalf or ask that changes be made to your tax file.

You can appoint someone (like a spouse, family member or professional representative) as your representative by:

  • using the online service for granting an authorization or power of attorney in My Account for individuals;
  • sending us form MR-69-V, Authorization to Communication Information or Power of Attorney, or a handwritten letter granting an authorization or power or attorney.

Authorizations and powers of attorney are valid indefinitely, unless you specify an end date.
