If you want medical records from a US doctor, the HIPAA form would have to be signed by FIL, although I think it's possible that someone who is named as proxy under an Advanced Directive / Living Will could also sign a HIPAA form on FIL's behalf.

Is your father-in-law able to sign what is called a HIPAA form [don't know if Canada has something similar that he can sign] where he indicated the relatives/friends that can get access to his medical records? One doesn't need POA or anything else for the HIPAA form here in the States, Canada might be different.
