Earlier this year, Dying With Dignity Canada hosted a special webinar on the Council of Canadian Academies’ (CCA) reports on medical assistance in dying (MAID). Our February presentation focused on the CCA’s study on advance requests for assisted dying.
Now, we’re pleased to announce that we will be hosting a June 18 webinar that will delve into the CCA’s two other reports on MAID. Our featured speakers for this exclusive, free-to-attend event — which will take place three years almost to the day after the legalization of MAID — are:
- Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of the Wellesley Institute, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, and Chair of the CCA panel on MAID where a Mental Disorder is the Sole Underlying Medical Condition
- Bryan Salte, Associate Registrar and Legal Counsel, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan, and Member of the CCA panel on MAID for Mature Minors
This is another rare opportunity to hear from the researchers responsible for the most extensive examination of the potential implications of expanding Canada’s assisted dying rules.
