Changes to Medical Assistance in Dying law

On March 17, 2021, the senate passed Bill C-7, which changes requirements related to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) under the Criminal Code. 

CNO is collaborating with stakeholders and developing resources to support safe nursing practice. We are also updating our guidance document on MAID. We will inform you as soon as these resources are available.

In the meantime, read the Department of Justice’s news release or see the Parliament of Canada’s website for the details of Bill C-7.
