Decision-Making with Support People

  • Any measure that involves a person/persons who assist another person to make a decision
  • May be formal or informal assistance
  • Only some Canadian jurisdictions grant formal legal recognition to support people e.g. British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Yukon
  • Each of the laws that recognize supporters do so differently
  • Legal recognition takes different forms, for example:
    • Planning documents – person appoints their supporter(s) (e.g. representation agreement, British Columbia)
    • Court appointment of supporter(s) (e.g. co-decision making, Alberta)
