What is it like to have a loved one access their right to a peaceful death? It’s a delicate question, one that relatively few Canadians are equipped to answer.

What we are learning is that no two journeys with medical assistance in dying (MAID) are exactly alike. The factors that shape a MAID case — from the medical circumstances that led to the person’s decision, to their personal values and beliefs, to how their healthcare providers responded to their request — means that every family’s experience is different from the next.

Three Canadians who supported a loved one through a MAID journey have agreed to share their personal story as part of an upcoming webinar hosted by Dying With Dignity Canada. These courageous storytellers, each joining us from a different part of the country, will include:

- Liana Brittain, Prince Edward Island
- Jana Buhlmann, British Columbia
- John MacTavish, Ontario

Nino Sekopet, manager of DWDC’s Personal Support Program, will also share his insights on what it’s like to support individuals and families who are navigating the MAID process.

Please join us for this unique, free-to-attend webinar that will take place on Tuesday, November 28 at 4 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST. Space for the webinar is limited, so please RSVP today by clicking the link:

NOTE: We encourage you to listen to the webinar using your computer audio. While a phone number is provided, please note that this is a local Toronto number and long-distance charges may apply.
