Third Interim Report on Medical Assistance in Dying in Canada

Posted 2018-09-12

The Government of Canada has released the third Interim Report on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) in Canada (July 1 to December 31, 2017)

The Government of Canada has released the third Interim Report on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) in Canada.

L’Arche has endorsed the Vulnerable Persons Standard. The Vulnerable Persons Standard was created to support the development of Canada’s response to the Carter decision, and assist policy-makers now working to regulate the practice of medical assistance in dying.

The Standard helps ensure that Canadians requesting assistance from physicians to end their life can do so without jeopardizing the lives of vulnerable persons who may be subject to coercion, inducement to suicide and abuse.

The Standard was developed by a body of advisors with expertise in medicine, ethics, law, public policy and needs of vulnerable persons. These advisors continue to advocate on behalf of the Standard and are actively involved in on-going studies as well as litigation related to medical assistance in dying in Canada. CACL leads the convening of the Vulnerable Persons Advisors and Coalition.
