The Diana Pathway
Leading the way in holistic education and support for Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)
Medically assisted death rose by 35% in Canada from 2020 to 2021
The Diana Pathway supports those considering and accessing Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) due to a terminal illness and, through the dedicated outreach work of HHA's team, aims to create an environment to safely navigate the myriad perceptions around MAiD. It was inspired by Diana, the first client HHA supported when seeking MAiD. Diana was passionate about an individual’s right to make decisions that reflect their values and preferences for their own healthcare when facing death. We are committed to carry on her legacy by providing support that respects the autonomy and dignity of those navigating end-of-life decisions.

Marching for MAID is the Diana Pathway's first team to ever participate in HHA's Moonlit Memory Walk! We are walking in honour of all of those who have died with the support of a medically assisted death since the legalization of MAID in 2016. We are walking to remember and to hold space for those who have died, and to create a community of support for those grieving the loss of a loved one who died with the support of MAID.
