Brandon’s Dad’s Story

The day Brandon turned 19 he made a Representation Agreement and we formed a microboard for him. We had a dinner with family and friends and witnessed that magical moment when he held the pen and made his mark indicating he wanted his mom and dad to be his legal representatives. Everyone else signed in their appropriate places. We all laughed and cried; Brandon was an adult.

Having a Representative Agreement helped things go smoothly when accessing services and benefits. The Representation Agreement was needed when going through CLBC for community supports in the community. We made copies of his Representation Agreement and handed out 13 of them to various organizations who wanted copies : bank, CLBC, PWD, doctor, dentist, accountant, and others. The representative agreement allows us to effectively advocate for Brandon’s life plans. As a recent graduate of DP Todd Secondary School, Brandon’s life is just beginning!

About:

Welcome to our virtual celebration and thank you for spreading the word about Representation Agreements and Personal Planning in British Columbia! This site is a host to many stories and memories that exemplify the rich history of the Representation Agreement Act (legislation that is unique to BC!). We hope that you enjoy looking through our past and are inspired to contribute and participate in our future.

Personal planning is the act of making one or more legal documents that authorize your personal supporters to help you manage your affairs or make decisions on your behalf if you need assistance due to illness, injury or disability. Personal planning can address a variety of situations and needs.

If you would like to share your story or experience with Representation Agreements, or even a story about how you think a Representation Agreement may have helped, please send us an email at info@nidus.ca . Sharing your experience will help others make Representation Agreements.
