Since June 2016, assisted suicide and euthanasia have been legalized across Canada. We need your help to improve access to palliative care, and to protect the conscience rights of Ontario healthcare professionals and faith-based facilities.

As of June 17, 2016, it is now legal for patients to request physician-assisted suicide in Canada. Despite limited conscience protection in federal legislation (Bill C-14) and freedom of conscience enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms, there are still provinces where conscience rights are at risk.

In Ontario, for example, the College and Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO) has abandoned thousands of doctors who cannot provide referrals for medical assistance in dying. In Manitoba, the government has passed Bill 34, a legislation that protects doctors, nurses and pharmacists from having to perform or aid in the provision of assisted suicide against their conscience. This bill passed with support from all parties after Manitoba legislators received over 14,000 letters through our Call for Conscience campaign.

In Alberta, an MLA has put forward conscience legislation for all Alberta healthcare professionals. Please write to your MLA using the letter below to encourage them to support Bill 207 and ensure that doctors, nurses and pharmacists have their conscience rights protected.
