person as the proxy of the resident.
(2) Any such appointment is to be made
in the form and manner prescribed by the regulations.
(3) A person is not the
proxy of a resident of a retirement village for the purposes of this Act
unless the person is appointed under this section.

not effective for the purposes of this Act, and an appointment under this Act
is not effective for the purposes of another law (unless the other law
provides that it is).

retirement village or close associate of the operator of a retirement village
as a proxy is of no effect.
(5) A person appointed as the proxy of a resident
of a retirement village cannot vote on the resident's behalf if the resident
