To physicians and professionals who practice the reserved act of psychosocial assessment
Important updates are being made to the assessment and reassessment forms.
To ensure that your applications are admissible, please read the instructions carefully.
If you have one of the current forms, we do not recommend you use it as a template. Instead, make sure to download the latest version for each new assessment you complete.
Some forms are fillable documents. This means that they can be completed on-screen.
To complete the form, save it to your computer and open it in Adobe Reader .
You must then print and mail them to the Curateur Public. Emailed forms are not accepted.
Note: Contact your technocentre regarding problems with access, data entry or printing. The technocentre will contact the Curateur public about any problems within the scope of the office.
The law to better protect vulnerable persons will come into effect on November 1, 2022. On that date, new information about the person’s faculties will be needed to ensure the assessments meet legal requirements. The new forms will be rolled out in several phases until November 2022. Watch out for the latest updates and instructions.
The complementary forms are used to provide additional information needed for the court to process applications once the law comes into effect.
The Curateur public, notary or lawyer who will process your application will ask you to fill them out, as needed. If you do not receive a notice, you do not have to add them to your application.
Training is required to use the new psychosocial assessment forms. This training is provided by the healthcare institutions and the Ordre des travailleurs sociaux et des thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec. No training is required for the new medical assessment forms.
Note that once the law comes into effect, the tutorship will become the sole protective supervision regime available to incapable persons.
