Multipurpose Room, Prince Rupert Library

Consent is very much in the news as it underlies many of our day-to-day interactions. Consent is also fundamental to encounters with the health care and residential care systems.

Since 2000, BC has specific legislation about health care consent and Representation Agreements for making a legally-binding document in case of incapacity, for end-of-life, and other support needs.

There is lots of confusion about non-legal documents such as living wills, the Do-Not-Resuscitate form and Levels of Care forms, including MOST (Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment). Learn what IS law in BC.
