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.
