Advocacy And Protection

Though maintaining autonomy of the older adult is the primary goal, there are times when seniors are more vulnerable, for example due to cognitive impairment or mental illness. As a society we need to ensure they are protected and have access to an advocate. There are several agencies and organizations in Ontario that are designed to protect the rights of vulnerable individuals.  Below are more resources for Advocacy & Protection from the following offices:

Office Of The Public Guardian And Trustee

Consent And Capacity Board

Ontario Human Rights Commission
