Incapacity (or personal) planning provisions are part of the Adult Guardianship and Planning Statutes Amendment Act, 2007.

Adult guardianship provisions are not included in this phase.

The Sept. 1 effective date provides a transition period to prepare for the new legislation. Existing, valid enduring powers of attorney and representative agreements will be grandparented.
