[Vancouver] “In My Own Time” Documentary Screening
Jan. 27 2024 | 12:45 PM PT | Metro Vancouver

Using first-hand accounts from people across Canada, this film will offer perspectives on medical assistance in dying (MAID) less commonly seen in media reports and present an opportunity to educate people on end-of-life choice in Canada.
