Power of Attorney for Personal Care
What is the Consent and Capacity Board?
The Consent and Capacity Board is an independent body that holds hearings to consider a variety of things, including:
- a review of an individual's capacity to make decisions about health treatment, personal assistance services, or admission to a long-term care facility,
- the appointment of a representative to make treatment decisions for someone who is incapable of making their own decisions, and
- a substitute decision-maker's request for guidance in making treatment decisions.
