Rules of Practice
June , 
These Rules have been adopted by the Consent and Capacity Board (the “Board”) pursuant to
section . of the Statutory Powers Procedure Act. Except where their application is statutorily
excluded, these Rules apply to all hearings held by the Board including those held under the
Health Care Consent Act, 1996, Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007, Mental Health Act, Mandatory
Act, 1992, and any other legislation pursuant to which the Board is required to hold hearings.
. The purpose of these Rules is to provide a just, fair, accessible and understandable process
for parties to hearings before the Board. The Rules attempt to facilitate access to the Board; to
promote respectful hearings; to promote consistency of process; to make hearings less adver-
sarial, where appropriate; to make hearings as cost ef‌fective as possible for all those involved
in Board hearings by ensuring their eciency and timeliness; to avoid unnecessary length and
delay of hearings; to assist the Board in fulf‌illing its statutory mandate; and in delivering a just
and fair determination of the matters which come before it.
. These Rules are to be read in conjunction with the Statutory Powers Procedure Act. The
Board will also consider the Board’s Policy Guidelines and other Board policies, practice direc-
tions or procedural directions.
. These Rules apply to all hearings of the Board.
. Where any of these Rules conf‌lict with any statute or regulation or where the application
of these Rules is statutorily excluded, the provisions of the statute or regulation will prevail.
. Where something is not provided for in these Rules, the practice may be decided by refer-
ring to a similar provision in these Rules.
. In applying these Rules, the Board will make orders and give directions that are proportion-
ate to the complexity of the issues and the interests at stake.
