Guardianship Services

“We were guided through how to fill out the forms ourselves and we had a better understanding after we attended the Guardianship Information session.”

Guardianship is when an adult no longer has the capacity to make his or her own decisions. A Guardian is appointed by the Court and has the legal responsibility to make personal decisions for another person.

Sage's Guardianship and Trusteeship Services are under contract with the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT) to offer guidance to anyone looking at the process of Guardianship or Trusteeship. We can help you with applications for adult private Guardianship (Review of Guardianship, Co-Decision Making), and provide information and assistance completing personal directives.

Information sessions are held on a regular basis at Sage and the Gateway Association and are recommended for anyone considering a private Guardianship, Review of Guardianship, Co-Decision Making, or Trusteeship application. Click here to find out more about the Information Sessions and for Sage's helpful publications on the Guardianship application process.

The OPGT website has the forms you need for the Guardianship application, such as the OPG BackCheck Form, as well as useful information regarding Guardianship, Trusteeship, Personal Directives, and Co-Decision Making.

The Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta has published a helpful booklet that answers many Frequently Asked Questions about Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship.
