DWDC's Annual General Meeting - Toronto - May 29, 2016

For 2016, Dying With Dignity Canada's Annual General Meeting returns to Toronto. Don't miss out on this opportunity to meet the organization's board and staff, cast your ballot in the board elections and learn more about what's ahead for movement for afford all Canadians compassion and choice at end of life.

We are thrilled to announce that two assisted dying trailblazers — Dr. Ellen Wiebe and Toronto MP Rob Oliphant — will be speaking at Dying With Dignity Canada’s Annual General Meeting on May 29 in Toronto.

B.C.’s Dr. Ellen Wiebe was the first physician outside of Quebec to offer assisted dying in Canada. A member of DWDC’s Physicians Advisory Council, Wiebe has been a vocal advocate for removing unnecessary roadblocks for suffering Canadians seeking to access assisted dying.

Joining her will be Rob Oliphant, the Liberal MP for Don Valley West, who acted as co-chair of the Special Joint Committee on Physician-Assisted Dying. Oliphant has actively spoken out against his own government’s overly restrictive assisted dying bill and continues to be a valiant advocate for compassionate choice.

To attend, you must be a DWDC member in good standing.

Updated agenda:

  • 1:30 p.m. — Meet and mingle with Board members and staff (refreshments available)
