Contribute to the Shine a Light Progress Map

Add to our continually evolving crowd-sourced map of assisted dying access in Canada.

Desperately ill individuals across the country want information about the choice of a peaceful death, but don’t know where it’s available or whom to ask for help. They need a map.

Right now, we are mobilizing our supporters to call every hospital, hospice and long-term care home in their respective communities, to find out their policies on medical assistance in dying. The intelligence we gather will be plugged into an interactive online map below showing which facilities allow assisted dying, which ones forbid it and which ones have no formal policy whatsoever.

Zoom in to your part of the country to see what assisted dying looks like in your neck of the woods. Keep in mind that this map is not comprehensive. It will be updated continuously as we receive more information from our supporters.
