International recognition for Nidus and the Representation Agreement Act of BC

A Scientific Advisory Board to the World Future Council  has chosen the Representation Agreement Act as the best policy in the world for recognizing the right to support in personal decision making and avoiding guardianship. As reported in the October issue of  the Nidus newsletter, the Nidus Personal Planning Resource Centre and Registry has been recognized as  the organization that has been the main driver behind the creation of the Act, and as the leading expert on this unique  BC policy.


Recognizing the capacity of all people to direct their lives, a Representation Agreement is a legal document available to adults in BC for personal planning. It allows you to authorize one or more personal supporters to be your representative to help you manage your affairs and, if necessary, to make decisions on your behalf in case of illness, injury, or disability.

A great introduction to Representation Agreements is provided in this Nidus fact sheet. RepAgreementFactSheet
