Guardianship & Trusteeship
Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT)
We provide services to help all Albertans plan for the future and make the most of today if decision-making support is needed.
We help when someone dies and there’s no one to administer their estate.
We work mostly with adults, but we also help manage funds for minors in special situations.
