People living with dementia often find that their decision-making rights are not respected. Some people assume that if you have dementia you cannot understand information or make choices. This exclusion happens within health care institutions and also in the larger community. 


The Canadian Centre for Elder Law has developed new resources in collaboration with the Alzheimer Society of BC, the Notary Foundation of BC, the Law Foundation of BC, and the Vancouver Foundation.

These resources cover the law in BC. In other parts of Canada the law may be slightly different.

Presented by Krista James

National Director of the Canadian Center for Elder Law

Krista graduated from UBC Law School in 1997 and was called to the BC Bar in 1998. Before joining the CCEL, she practiced labour law with a focus on human rights and disability issues. Over the years Krista has worked with women’s centres and various non-profit community organizations serving low-income people in BC. She has worked as a legal advocate and a victim assistance worker.
