The Curateur public du Québec hosted the 2022 Conference of the National Association of Public Trustees and Guardians, which took place in Vieux-Québec from May 30 to June 1.
In addition to representatives from Québec, this annual meeting brought together, in person and virtually, public trustees and guardians from Ontario, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nunavut, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
The event is intended as a forum for sharing best practices and discussing issues that affect vulnerable people across the country. Topics discussed included the issue of Indigenous values, investment strategies for people under protective supervision, the digital transformation, the impact of COVID‑19, and the new national insurance program.
Representatives of the Curateur public du Québec didn’t pass up the opportunity to discuss topics related to the law intended to better protect vulnerable persons, scheduled to come into force on November 1.
At the end of the annual general meeting, Julie Baillargeon-Lavergne, Québec’s Public Curator and Chair of the Association, relinquished her seat to the new Chair, Michael Fleischmann, Public Trustee of Prince Edward Island.
