Webinar: Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD): Understanding Bill C-7’s Changes to the Canadian MAiD FrameworkThursday August 11, 2022 from 9:00amto 10:00am EDT
Join Dr. Catharine Schiller for this CCCN webinar on 11th August 2022 at 9am (EST)/12pm (PST)
In February 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada decided the Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) case, which radically changed the end-of-life care landscape. The Canadian federal government responded to this decision by passing Bill C-14 and legalizing medical assistance in dying. Bill C-7, passed in 2021, made important changes to this original legislation. This presentation will describe the changes that resulted from Bill C-7 and will consider its implications for healthcare providers.
