This template is for parents of children (of any age) with development disabilities who are unable to make medical decisions for themselves.

This app generates a letter stating that you, the parent, are the child's substitute decision-maker. Please note this is only the case if your child lacks capacity to make treatment decisions (which is generally up to the health care provider proposing the treatment).

Disclaimer: Before you get started, please note this app is based solely on Ontario law. Using this app does not make Lisa Feldstein Law Office Professional Corporation your lawyer, and is not and does not replace legal advice. If you are unsure about whether your child has capacity, please speak with a lawyer.
