British Columbia law provides for three formal instruments by which direction for health care and personal care decisions may be made in advance:
- Representation Agreements, which allow a donor to appoint representatives to make decisions regarding health and personal care. These are discussed further in Chapter 15: Adult Guardianship and Substitute Decision-Making.
- Advance Directives, which contain specific directions regarding health care, that are binding on health care providers.
- Nominations of Committees, which permits an individual to express their preferences regarding who may be appointed as a person’s committee in case of incapacity.
