Medical Assistance in Dying and how it is Accessed in Alberta
Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) has been legal throughout Canada since June of 2016. In Alberta, (June 2016-August 2020), 1351 have died using MAID, and 190 have applied but did not meet the legal criteria. MAID accounts for approximately 2% of all deaths in Alberta.
This presentation will explore MAID as an end-of- life option, the application process, criteria, and current legislation. You will also hear a first-hand story about a family’s experience with MAID, and we will answer your questions.
