  • On October 30, 2009, the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act (“AGTA”) replaced the Dependent Adults Act (“DAA”). The AGTA represents a significant change to the way guardians and trustees are appointed and administered in Alberta. The AGTA will not only affect new applications for the appointment of guardians, trustees and other decision makers, it will also apply to those guardians and trustees who were already appointed under the DAA.
