MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying) Death Café

Medical  Assistance in Dying (MAiD) is one of our most requested Death Cafés,  and we are proud to provide an open forum to discuss and destigmatize this topic in a safe, non-judgmental space.

While  MAiD became legal in Canada in June 2016, it remains a complex and  deeply personal issue, with many people who seek access to MAiD or their  loved ones feeling stigmatized and unsupported. The goal of legalizing a  medically assisted death was to offer Canadians who were experiencing insufferable pain the option to end their life with the assistance of a Medical Doctor or Nurse Practitioner. Since June 2016, there have been  more than 13,000 reported medically assisted deaths in Canada (Government of Canada: Source New Medical Assistance in Dying becomes Law).    

Why we meet:    

1. to share our thoughts, feelings and emotions around MAiD   

2. to create a safe space to discuss the legalization of MAiD and the emerging laws on MAiD and Mental Health   

3. to discuss the impact MAiD has on families and loved ones
