Abstract

In the spring of 1991, the Ontario government introduced a legislative package that will fundamentally change the way health care is practiced in Ontario and, if copied, elsewhere in Canada. The Consent to Treatment Act, the Substitute Decisions Act, the Consent and Capacity Statute Law Amendment Act and the Advocacy Act are the culmination of almost a decade of work by three provincial governments. This article describes and evaluates the provisions relating to advocacy.
