British Columbia’s adult guardianship legislation contains guiding principles that¬†create a comprehensive and integrated system of support and assistance for adults who need help in making decisions about their health, personal care, and their financial or legal affairs. Part 3 of the Adult Guardianship Act regarding support and assistance for abused and neglected adults is the part of the legislation most closely connected to CRNs.

Vulnerable adults sometimes require legal support above and beyond what is outlined in guardianship legislation.  From determining how a person is represented financially, to managing health care decisions, to transitioning into a new home Рthere are many situations that require legal remedies.
