Dying With Dignity Canada’s longevity and success is due to the many volunteers who work on the local and at the regional level. We have Chapters across the country powered by people passionate about end-of-life choice.

We rely on our supporters to engage with their communities, defend patient rights, and ensure Canadians are informed about their legal end-of-life options. Volunteers share in our mission by:

  • Organizing events
  • Facilitating educational workshops
  • Recruiting new supporters within their communities
  • Providing independent witnessing for medical assistance in dying
  • Advocating for end-of-life choice in their communities and nationally
  • Participating in media outreach, and more
