The Law Commission of Ontario (LCO) has released its final report on Capacity and Legal Representation for the Federal RDSP

The Final Report responds to concerns that adults with disability and their family and friends expressed with regard to existing processes to appoint a person who can open and manage funds in a plan on the beneficiary’s behalf. It recommends specific measures that could enable beneficiaries to personally appoint a family member, friend or community organization as an RDSP legal representative and, therefore, improve access to the program.
