Co-decision-making : Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act [2022]

Description

This information sheet explains co-decision-making under the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act. If an adult's ability to make personal decisions is impaired but they can make decisions with good support, co-decision-making may be an option. The adult who needs support doesn't lose authority to make their own decisions. They share that authority with their co-decision-maker.
