The Public Curator, upon receiving a report from the executive director of an institution governed by the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or by the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5) setting forth the inability of a person of full age to care for himself or to administer his property, may take, within a reasonable time, any appropriate measure including the calling of a meeting of relatives, relatives by marriage or friends of the person of full age, in order to establish his condition, the nature and extent of his needs and faculties and his other circumstances. The Public Curator, where he believes it expedient to institute protective supervision, may transmit his recommendation to the prothonotary with a statement of the measures he has taken, and propose a person able to assist or represent the person of full age and who consents to do so. He shall then file the report of disability in the office of the court and notify the persons qualified to apply for the institution of protective supervision that the report has been filed.
The Public Curator shall proceed in the same manner upon receiving a report, pursuant to section 10 of the Mental Patients Protection Act (chapter P-41), from the director of professional services of an institution referred to in the first paragraph which operates a hospital centre.
