Guide for private guardians : Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act

Description

A private guardian is a person who has been given the legal authority and responsibility to make, or help make, decisions about non-financial personal matters for a represented adult who is unable, due to a temporary or permanent lack of capacity, to make his or her own decisions. Decisions made by guardians can be in one or more designated areas of authority (outlined below) and do not include financial matters. Decisions regarding financial matters are made by the attorney (trustee) and this person may be the same person as the guardian or may be a different person.
