Free Webinar for Exceptional Families: Understanding Your Legal Rights

 

Many people are surprised to learn that when a child with a disability reaches age of majority(18), their parents are no longer their legal guardians. So how can parents protect the legal rights of their adult children? Is adult guardianship a viable alternative? What is the state of supported care in Ontario?  

 

In this free webcast, Brendon Pooran of PooranLaw will provide an overview of legal issues families and people with a disability should be aware of.

 

The session will provide:

 

·    An understanding of the law in Ontario as it pertains to a person with a developmental disability

·    An awareness of consent and capacity issues

·    Legal instruments families can utilize

·    Discussion on real life legal scenarios
