Health Care Consent Act, S.O. 1996, c. 2, Sched. A, Part V, ss. 70(1) (opens a new window)
Function

The Consent and Capacity Board is established under the Health Care Consent Act, 1996. The primary responsibilities of the board include hearings for the review of a patient's involuntary status in a psychiatric facility under the Mental Health Act, 1990 and for the review of capacity issues under the Health Care Consent Act, 1996 and the Substitute Decisions Act, 1992. The board also holds hearings under the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 and the Mandatory Blood Testing Act, 2006. The board is an independent tribunal headed by a full-time Chair. Hearing panels are made up of a lawyer, a psychiatrist or, where permitted by legislation a nurse in the extended class or a physician, and a community member. Additionally, where permitted by legislation, a panel may be comprised of a legal member sitting alone.

Membership

Members are appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council who designates one member as chair and one or more other members as vice-chair(s). The chair is the chief executive officer of the board.

Term

Members are appointed for two, three or five years.

Meetings
Hearings are held throughout the province and must be convened within seven calendar days of receipt of an application. Decisions must be issued within one calendar day of the hearing. Lawyer members prepare Reasons for Decision when requested; by statute, these must be issued within four business days of the request if the request is made within 30 days of the decision. On average, hearings last about two hours and preparation of reasons typically require a minimum of five hours of work. Members usually attend hearings within their residential geographic area but may be asked to travel anywhere throughout the province.
Remuneration

Appointees are remunerated according to Schedule B of the Agencies and Appointments Directive
