The law in Canada has changed.
On Friday, June 17, 2016, the government of Canada passed Bill C-14, the legislation on medical assistance in dying (MAiD). This means MAiD is now law.
Doctors are now legally able to provide assistance in dying to competent adults seeking this service who have a grievous and irremediable medical condition that causes enduring, intolerable suffering.
Talk to your doctor if you, or a loved one, is considering this option and wants to learn more. You can discuss your personal situation and find out if other services could address your concerns.
