Answering your questions. Do you have questions about your options for end of life? Do you want to make sure your wishes for end-of-life care are followed? Do you need ideas on how to support a loved one or client who has just received a terminal diagnosis? Contact DWDC's Support team for useful, up-to-date information about assisted dying, patient rights, and end-of-life care.

To reach DWDC's free-to-use Support Program, send an email to [email protected] or call us toll-free at 1-844-395-3640. Please note that Dying With Dignity Canada is only able to provide support to residents of Canada.

We do not encourage anyone to end their life, nor do we provide the means to do so.

* Please note that to access medical assistance in dying in Canada you must be eligible for publicly-funded health services in Canada, therefore we cannot support anyone who is not covered under the Canadian health care system.
