The Coalition for HealthCARE and Conscience represents a group of like-minded organizations, including 5,000 physicians across Canada, as well as more than 110 healthcare facilities representing 18,000 care beds and 60,000 staff. We are committed to protecting conscience rights for health practitioners and facilities.
We were brought together by a common mission to respect the sanctity of human life, to protect the vulnerable and to promote the ability of individuals and institutions to provide health care without having to compromise their conscience.
Members of the coalition include:
The Canadian Catholic Bioethics Institute
The Canadian Federation of Catholic Physicians’ Societies
The Salvation Army
The Canadian Physicians for Life
The Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto
The Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver
The Catholic Health Alliance of Canada
The Catholic Organization for Life and Family
The Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada
The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada
The Coalition has put forward a proposal that will respect the conscience rights of doctors and health care facilities, without interfering with the patient’s choice for assisted death.
