Replacing members of the tutorship council
What is the procedure for replacing members of the tutorship council?
If a member resigns, the remaining members choose one of the two substitutes (or alternates as they are called in the Civil Code of Québec) appointed by the court when it instituted protective supervision.
If there is no substitute, the members choose a relative (this includes someone related by marriage) or a friend. Ideally, both sides of the protected person's family (maternal and paternal) should be represented on the council.
If the tutorship council only has one member, then they have to ask the court to appoint a replacement.
If the secretary resigns, the tutorship council chooses another member or substitute as replacement. If necessary, they choose a fourth person.
