Representation Agreement named as one of the best policies in the world

A Scientific Advisory Board to the World Future Council , consisting of eleven leading European experts from the disability rights movement, academia, human rights institutions and foundations has chosen the Representation Agreement as the best policy in the world for recognizing the right to support in personal decision-making and avoiding guardianship.

The World Future Council has also recognized the Nidus Personal Planning Resource Centre and Registry as the leading expert on the BC law and system, and as the organization which has been the main driver behind the creation of the Act. Nidus and the Representation Agreement will be featured in a Bulletin issued by the World Future Council and promoted as an example of best policies at an upcoming conference in Vienna in January 2012, which Christine Gordon, Nidus’ Board President has been invited to attend.
