Share your personal story

Have you supported a loved one on a journey with assisted dying? Have you received a catastrophic diagnosis and want to share your end-of-life process with others? Are you encountering barriers to accessing the end-of-life choice you want?

Join the growing list of brave Canadians who have shared their personal stories about death, dying, and choice. Your story will inspire and inform other people interested in learning more about end-of-life issues and realities in Canada, and how they, too, can 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 800 to 1,200 words. Ultimately, though, this is your story to tell 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!

*We are grateful to you for offering to share your story. Your invaluable insights and experiences inspire us to continue defending Canadians’ end-of-life rights. Please understand that Dying With Dignity Canada reserves the right not to include your submission on our blog for reasons that may include, but are not limited to, safety, privacy, legal, and/or other reasons. We thank you for understanding!
