Is MAiD for me?
2 Hour Info Session
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) was legalized in Canada in June 2016. As of March 17, 2021 the bill was amended and this piece of legislation now means that it is no longer required that a person’s natural death be reasonably foreseeable to access medical assistance in dying (MAiD). This amendment is a huge milestone and will be remembered as one of enormous change, driven by compassion, an end to suffering and discrimination, and a desire for personal autonomy. One year from now, in March 2023, Canada will become one of the few nations in the world allowing medical aid in dying, or MAID, for people whose sole underlying condition is depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia, PTSD or any other mental affliction. Join us for an informative and valuable discussion about MAiD. All perspectives are welcome!
