Increased / new coverage for Consent and Capacity Board appeals

Published: June 23, 2020

Effective immediately, Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) will be making changes to its certificate coverage for Consent and Capacity Board (CCB) appeals.

  • LAO will be offering an additional ten (10) hours to the current 25 hours allocated on the CCB appeal tariff (excluding hearing time). This increases the total coverage on the certificate to 35 hours. Any existing CCB appeal certificate with an opinion certificate issued on or after March 13 is eligible for an additional 10 hours.

  • LAO will be introducing a new 10‑hour certificate for motions for emergency/urgent CCB treatment orders held in superior court. This coverage is effective immediately.

We will be contacting all lawyers who have applied for CCB appeal coverage from March 13 onward. Please contact us if you have not heard from us.
