On January 11, 2016, the LCO released its Interim Report on Legal Capacity, Decision-making and Guardianship for public feedback. The Interim Report includes draft recommendations designed to respond to concerns about Ontario’s laws addressing situations where decisions are needed but decision-making abilities are at issue.

The LCO encourages feedback from members of the public, including older adults and persons with disabilities, family members, service providers, policy-makers, lawyers and advocates, until Friday, March 4, 2016, as part of its public consultation process.
