Bill C-14 on MAID Now Federal Law

On June 17, 2016, the federal government passed legislation that governs the medical assistance in dying (MAID) process. Bill C-14 was approved with amendments by a vote of 44-28, and received royal assent which makes it federal law effective immediately.

The College will be updating its documents as necessary to reflect the amendments and will share information with registrants as soon as possible. 

Bill C-14 is available on the Parliament of Canada's website.
