Consent and Capacity Board
The Consent and Capacity Board (CCB) is an independent provincial tribunal. Most of the CCB’s work involves 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.
Dealing with mental incapacity
Mental incapacity is when someone cannot understand relevant information or cannot appreciate what may happen as a result of decisions they make — or do not make — about their finances, health or personal care.
