Overview

This project explored the procedures surrounding issues that arise when adult guardianship orders are made outside the province. Adult guardianship orders appoint persons to make decisions and manage the physical well-being, property, and financial affairs in circumstances where individuals are unable to act for themselves. The Report issued as part of this project made recommendations for how issues that arise when adult guardianship orders emanate from other Canadian provinces and territories should be dealt with, namely, via the Enforcement of Canadian Judgments and Decrees Act.
