Your Rights

Adults living in Canada are used to making decisions about their own lives, whether it be where to live, what to eat, what to wear, or how to spend their money. Canadians understand free decision-making to be one of our basic rights. People with disabilities are no exception. Generally speaking, Canadian laws presume that people living with disability are capable of making their own decisions, just like everyone else. However, the laws governing decision-making are specific to each province and territory throughout Canada. While there are many similarities across the country, there are also some key differences. Scroll to the NWT section to find out how consent and capacity law works in your area.
