Waivers and Consent Forms

These two types of forms are often confused.

Waiver - Legal document that waives a person's right to seek damages from an organisation or person. The legal definition is "Relinquishment of a known contractual right by a party who has such a right, which will relieve the other party of his contractual duty. No consideration is necessary."

Informed Consent Legal document used to inform a person about the hazards and potential dangers of a particuliar activity. The legal definition is "Permission to do something which is given with complete knowledge of all relevant facts, such as the risks involved or any available alternatives.

Both the waiver forms and informed consent forms are customized to each activity.  To discuss your requirements, contact Andre Bonbonnière at 613-562-5800 ext 2093.
