Inspire & inform

Storytelling connects people through shared experience. If you have supported a loved one on a journey with assisted dying, received a difficult diagnosis yourself, or have encountered barriers to accessing the end-of-life choice you want, we are here to listen.

Your personal story can inspire and inform other people who are navigating end-of-life issues and realities in Canada and help them take control of their dying process.

Here’s what you need to know before sharing your story:

  • Take a quick look at the Dying With Dignity Canada blog to see other examples of personal stories
  • Your submission can be published anonymously or under a pseudonym, if you wish.
  • There is no required length or limit to your story, but most submissions fall between 500-1000 words. This is your story so it can be as short – or as long – as you want it to be.
  • We know your story is deeply personal, so we will always wait until we have spoken with you and received your final approval before we publish anything.

We thank you for your interest in empowering and educating others with your powerful story.
