Mini Law School

Nova Scotia is late in the game in providing a modern legal framework for people with intellectual disabilities who may need supports in decision-making. Landon Webb’s case forced the province’s hand, and the Adult Capacity and Decision-Making Act was put in place last December. At this session, we will look at what protection the new law gives to people who may not be able to make all of their decisions for themselves. How does it help families who want to support their loved ones? What has been left out? And what still needs to be done?

The panelists are Schulich School of Law Professors Archie Kaiser and Sheila Wildeman, Anna MacQuarrie of Inclusion International, and Ruth Strubank of the Nova Scotia Association for Community Living.
