Everything you need to know about requesting medical assistance in dying in your province or territory.
With the legalization of medical assistance in dying in June 2016, Canadians were granted another option at end of life — but confusion over interpreting the law and understanding the process can lead to unnecessary obstacles for people and their loved ones. The following information can help you navigate a request for medical assistance in dying.
To begin the process of requesting medical assistance in dying (MAID), it is recommended that you speak with your health care provider, or if applicable, your local health authority. Alternatively, you can contact Dying With Dignity Canada’s Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-844-395-3640. We can answer general questions about MAID or provide navigation support.
At any point during your MAID process, you can change your mind, even on the day of your provision.
