Description
This new publication is a guide for lawyers on the practice of guardianship law in Ontario. With the aging population and the number of Ontarians experiencing age-related capacity issues, this has become an area of increasing importance. The current state of the law in Ontario is reviewed with respect to the property and personal care of adults as well as the guardianship of minors. Extensive precedents are included along with practical guidance on the preparation of materials.
