Current Consultations

The British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL) solicit public comment on their work as part of the law reform and research process.

Public consultations take a variety of formats depending on the subject, project objectives, timelines and funding. Public feedback is often requested on a consultative document that outlines BCLI or CCEL research and tentative law reform proposals. Consultations may also include focus groups, one on one interviews, structured discussions with stakeholder organizations and online surveys.

Engaging People Living with Dementia in Decision-Making

We are seeking participants for a series of virtual consultation events on strategies for including people living with dementia in decision making. The events will run from July 2021 to March 2022. We would like to hear from people living with dementia and other disabilities. We are also recruiting family members and friends for virtual consultation events on the perspectives of care partners.

We will use what we learn from these group discussions to create tools for health care professionals and others on supporting people living with dementia to be involved in decision-making. We are also looking for partners to help recruit for and co-facilitate these consultation groups.

If you are interested in helping recruit or participating in one of the groups, contact Jess Fehrenbacher at or 778-548-9996
