Office of the Public Guardian

The Public Guardian is an officer under Section 57 of the MCA. The Public Guardian will be supported by the Office of the Public Guardian, which will supervise Court Appointed Deputies, keep a register of Court Appointed Deputies, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Enduring Powers of Attorney, check on what Attorneys are doing, and investigate any complaints about Attorneys or Deputies.

The Office of the Public Guardian replaces the Public Guardianship Office (PGO) that has been in existence for many years.
