Webcast series

The Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT) is offering an ongoing learning series to help Albertans understand the services and resources the office provides.

While most adult Albertans have the capacity to make personal and financial decisions on their own, there are some who cannot or who need help due to circumstances that affect their capacity such as an illness, injury, or a developmental disability.

A series of monthly free webcasts will focus on practical tips for individuals, caregivers, and professionals for dealing with life changes and the resources that are available to help.

The OPGT supports about 30,000 Albertans, including close to 1,300 adults where the OPGT acts as a guardian and trustee.
