Health Care Decisions and Wills (16A:X)

From Clicklaw Wikibooks



British Columbia law provides for three formal instruments by which direction for health care and personal care decisions may be made in advance:

  1. Representation Agreements, which allow a donor to appoint representatives to make decisions regarding health and personal care. These are discussed further in in Chapter 15: Guardianship.
  2. Advance Directives, which contain specific directions regarding health care, that are binding on health care providers.
  3. Nominations of Committees permit an individual to express their preferences regarding who may be appointed as a person’s committee in case of incapacity.
