About Us

An independent provincial tribunal, the Consent and Capacity Board's (CCB) mission is the fair and accessible adjudication of consent and capacity issues, balancing the rights of vulnerable individuals with public safety. The CCB's key areas of activity are the adjudication of matters of capacity, consent, civil committal and substitute decision making. Over 80 percent of applications to the CCB involve a review of a person's involuntary status in a psychiatric facility under the Mental Health Act, or a review under the Health Care Consent Act of a person's capacity to consent to or refuse treatment.


The Board has the authority to hold hearings to deal with the following matters:


Health Care Consent Act


Mental Health Act


Personal Health Information Protection Act


Substitute Decisions Act


Mandatory Blood Testing Act
