Welcome

The Consent and Capacity Board is an independent body created by the provincial government of Ontario under the Health Care Consent Act. It conducts hearings under the Mental Health Act, the Health Care Consent Act, the Personal Health Information Protection Act, the Substitute Decisions Act and the Mandatory Blood Testing Act. Board members are psychiatrists, lawyers and members of the general public appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The Board sits with one, three, or five members. Hearings are usually recorded in case a transcript is required.

As of January 20 2014, the format of all Health Care Consent Act Applications to the Consent and Capacity Board has been updated. The new format provides better instructions and more space to include information on your application. The new format also meets the modern standards for Government of Ontario forms.
