BC’s adult guardianship legislation contains guiding principles that a secure quality of life for any adult is the active involvement of caring and committed people in their life.

Seniors, older adults, and vulnerable adult populations need a variety of legal support above and beyond what is outlined in guardianship legislation.

From managing how a person is represented financially, when seeking health care, or transitioning into a new home – there are many areas where the law can be confusing.
