Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)
“In February 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in Carter v. Canada that parts of the Criminal Code would need to change to comply with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The parts that prohibited medical assistance in dying under certain conditions would no longer be valid. The Supreme Court gave the government until June 6, 2016, to create a new law.
“In response, the federal government passed legislation that allows eligible adults to request medical assistance in dying.”
