Who We Are

The Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) is a corporation sole established under the Public Guardian and Trustee Act with a unique statutory role to protect the interests of British Columbians who lack legal capacity to protect their own interests. The mandate of the PGT is to:

  • Protect the legal and financial interests of children under the age of 19 years;
  • Protect the legal, financial and in some cases personal and health care interests of adults who require assistance in decision making; and
  • Administer the estates of deceased and missing persons.​
