Medical Assistance in Dying

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.
