ABOUT THE STRATEGY & THESE WEBCASTS
The Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT) provides information, education and support to vulnerable Albertans and their families related to personal and financial matters.  The Public Guardian and Public Trustee have mandated roles under several pieces of legislation.  These roles include:
•    Acting as a legal guardian and/or trustee when an adult is unable to make decisions for him or herself
•    Functioning as a Review Officer on Court applications under the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act
•    Administering estates when someone has died & there is no one else to do so
•    Protecting the assets of minors where required by law
•    Encouraging Albertans to plan ahead for a time when they may be unable to make their own decisions
•    Addressing concerns about legal decision makers (guardians, trustees, agents)

The OPGT Learning Series is intended for the general public and individuals who may be functioning as a substitute decision maker (acting as a guardian, trustee, agent, or attorney).  Service providers working in disability, health, and seniors sectors will also find the information relevant to their services and clientele.  Please share information about the OPGT learning series with your family, friends, and colleagues.
