How Goes the Battle? An Exploration of Guardianship Reform
AbstractThis article attempts to evaluate the success of guardianship law reform in Saskatchewan through a study of 446 guardianship applications made since the 2001 enactment of The Adult Guardianship and Co-decision-making Act. It begins by providing a brief history of guardianship law and details the development of the modern legislation. The author examines granted guardianship orders and surveys participants in the guardianship process in order to determine if the principles underlying the modern legislation have been upheld by the courts.
