Stepping Into an Incapable Person's Shoes

We are undoubtedly in the early stages of a surge of a substantial segment of the Canadian population reaching ages when capacity issues will start surfacing for some. With advances being made every day in all areas of health care, we will be faced with an aging population living for increased periods of time in potentially varying states of diminished capacity. A corollary of this scenario should mean that in future we will have more people assuming the role of substitute decision maker for individuals with impaired capacity-either acting as an attorney under a power of attorney or as a court-appointed guardian.

We are a top-ranked and peer recognized firm, including Margaret O’Sullivan by Chambers Canada Guide 2017 and Chambers Canada High Net Worth 2016 as one of the top six private client lawyers in Canada:
