ordered. If not addressed in an Order, the guardians usually both have rights and responsibilities for this.
Delegation of Powers and Duties to a Child Caregiver - implicit sub-allocation of powers and duties by the Director of Child and
Family Services, or their delegate (i.e., the social worker), under the Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act. Done by the
social worker for a child in protective custody – either Temporary Guardianship Order (TGO) or Permanent Guardianship Order
Shared Custody / Parenting – more than one guardian may exercise the powers, responsibilities and entitlements of guardianship,
unless the court orders otherwise; shall use best efforts to co-operate with one another in exercising their powers, responsibilities
and entitlements of guardianship. Can be court ordered, or presumed if the parents were married and are now separated but
have not been to court.
Sole Custody / Parenting – allocation, generally or specifically, of the powers, responsibilities and entitlements of guardianship
exclusive to one individual. Usually court ordered.
