Overview

The Health Care Consent and Capacity Assessment Tribunals Project followed upon a finding and recommendation in a recent Canadian Centre for Elder Law report, Conversations About Care: The Law and Practice of Health Care Consent for People Living with Dementia in British Columbia (2019). That report identified a need for an accessible and expeditious mechanism in British Columbia for challenges to findings of mental incapability to consent to health care or care facility admission, and for resolving disputes related to substitute decision making for persons incapable of giving or refusing consent. This project involved comparative research into health care, guardianship, and capacity tribunals in Canada and abroad.
