College MAiD Standard Updated

The College’s revised Professional Standard Regarding Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) was approved yesterday and is now available

The Standard reflects important changes in Canada’s legal approach to MAiD as provided for with the passage of Bill C-7 last month. These changes include a pathway to eligibility to MAiD for patients whose natural death is not reasonably foreseeable, as well as ongoing eligibility for patients who have lost capacity after having been found to be eligible  (Audrey’s Amendment).
