Join a chapter

Change starts at the grassroots. That’s why joining a DWD Canada local chapter is one of the best things you can do to defend Canadians’ right to a peaceful death.

Our chapters support our work in so many ways. They mobilize communities large and small to speak out for compassion and choice at end of life. They hold workshops on patient rights and advance care planning, provoking thoughtful discussions about death and dying. Our chapters also act as our ears on the ground, reporting back to us the concerns, hopes and fears of the people in their communities.

We are thrilled to have a network of passionate, committed chapters from coast to coast. Using the form at the bottom of the page, connect with a chapter where you live. A local leader will get back to you soon with more details on how to get involved.

What if there’s no DWD Canada chapter in your neck of the woods? Help us grow our movement in your community! Chapters plan and organize important events — such as film screenings, panel discussions and educational workshops — that contribute to the DWD Canada mission. They also push their elected officials to stand up for the 84 per cent of Canadians who support the right to assisted dying.

If you are interested in setting up a chapter in your hometown, please contact DWD Canada’s Volunteer and Events Co-ordinator Kelsey Goforth at
