Cross Canada Info
Nidus was established in 1995 by citizens and community groups who were involved in a grass roots law reform of adult guardianship in British Columbia. Nidus has developed expertise on BC legislation and practices as well as general concepts such as personal planning and supported decision making.
Currently, there is no community-based organization like Nidus across Canada or in other countries. Nidus’ approach to education and assistance is somewhat unique—like BC’s legislation. Nidus believes in collaboration and is fortunate to have the support and guidance of a Practice Advisory Group made up of community experts, legal experts, and others who are committed to providing accessible and accurate information to the public.
While BC legislation has some unique features, we have put together basic information we hope helps those in other provinces/territories to get started with personal planning.
