In celebration of Law Day, JSGS and the CBA SK Branch are pleased to host this public lecture:
The Parliament of Canada amended the Criminal Code in 2016 through Bill C-16 (medical assistance in dying), which came into force on June 17, 2017. These amendments responded to a 2015 judgment of the Supreme Court of Canada. The change in law allows eligible Canadians to obtain medical assistance in dying. Medical practitioners and nurse practitioners are now permitted to provide medical assistance in dying. Join us as our panelists discuss legal and medical issues arising from these changes, including who is eligible, and the
process by which the decision is made.
