We claim the distinction of being the first chapter formed in Canada. At a DWD Canada workshop in April of 2012, John Warren, who was then Vice President of Dying With Dignity Canada, urged Trish Remmers and Sigrid Wili to start a chapter.

We had our first meeting on May 22, 2012. Since that time, Trish and Sigrid have been joined by others to form a "core" team. At present, team members include June Churchill, Judy Hunt, Debra Dunwell, Jennifer Hardy, Irene Houghton, Gillian Lawrence, Nancy Smith and Evie Wallace.
