The Public Curator Act: Advocating for the rights of incapacitated persons for 25 years

(April 15, 2015) The Public Curator Act was enacted 25 years ago today, modernizing the protective framework for incapacitated persons, whose status was changed from “interdicted” to “protected.”

In the aim of better protecting the rights of incapacitated persons, the Act introduced significant changes, namely the psychosocial and medical assessment, the reassessment of protective supervision regimes, and tutorships to persons of full age.

This Act also gave Quebecers the option to draft a mandate in case of incapacity, determining in advance who will represent them in the event of their incapacity. Have you drawn up yours?
