Brief on the Reform of the Infirm Persons Act and the Establishment of a Legal Capacity and Supported Decision-Making Framework for New Brunswick
The government of New Brunswick has announced its intentions to review and reform the Infirm Persons Act. We propose a significant shift in adult decision-making laws in New Brunswick.

Good health and wellbeing are essential for people with an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD) to live well and contribute to their communities. Yet many face barriers to good health and in accessing health care.
The education team at Oromocto High School believes in their students’ abilities to be valued and contributing members of the community after they graduate, and they go above and beyond for their students, making sure they have goals and plans for their future.
As a resource teacher at Fredericton’s Leo Hayes High School, Lorie Holland has proven herself as instrumental in supporting her students to reach their full potential, and that she truly cares about her students’ lives.
Sarah Dobbelsteyn and Kimberlee Dixon, lead educator and administrator, respectively, of Seawood Early Childcare Centre, have created an inclusive atmosphere that welcomes all children.
Building an inclusive learning environment is a team effort at New Maryland Elementary School. And in the case of one student and his mother Rachelle, the team of Melissa Garrett (teacher), Tom Patterson (guidance), and Elise Deering (resource teacher) has made all the difference.
Where others would see obstacles, Tara sees opportunities. She’s focused on “making it happen” and sees her students for what they can do, rather than for what they can’t.
