Understanding co-decision-making : Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act

Description

Decision-making options for individuals who need assistance are on a continuum, ranging from supported decision-making authorizations to full guardianship. The Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act (AGTA) sets out the necessary legal process for granting powers of substitute decision-making to a co-decision maker. A co-decision-maker is appointed by the Court to help an adult make decisions in some or all areas of personal decision-making, except financial matters. This publication describes how to apply for a co-decision-making order and what’s involved.
