About Us

The Niagara Region Chapter of Dying With Dignity Canada (DWDC) was created in 2016 by a small group of volunteers whose hard work launched a series of well-attended seminars on Advance Care Planning. The Niagara Region Chapter has been slowly organizing itself, working with our national office to maximize our presence and our offerings. We have many small and unique communities within our region and we look forward to bringing information, presentations and workshops to them. We are also looking forward to working with organizations, associations, congregate facilities, etc., to strengthen the web of resources that our community residents can easily access.

Upcoming Events

Join us on December 14 for our final session of the year. We’ll be sitting down with DWDC CEO Helen Long and Dr. Gord Gubitz, the Clinical Lead for the MAID Program in Nova Scotia. This session will provide a review of the developments in the end-of-life rights movement for 2022 and what to expect moving forward into 2023.

Additional Information

As the pandemic loosens its hold, our Chapter is looking for opportunities to provide presentations and workshops.  We do recognize that there are still challenges with public health restrictions and so are able to work remotely via video conferencing as well as holding limited in-person events.
