Is a power of attorney made in one province okay in another?

It’s likely the power of attorney made in one province will be recognized in another. It may not be effective in dealing with all real estate matters. You should ask a lawyer or notary about the validity of the power of attorney in your situation.

If I prepared a power of attorney ten years ago, is it still good?

Yes. However, check it over to make sure that it will do what you want and that it’s still accurate. It’s a good idea to review all your financial affairs every two or three years. Addresses change, and so do people’s lives. Stay up to date.
