Medical assistance in dying

In Canada, you can ask for medical assistance in dying. You must meet certain conditions in order to be eligible for this assistance, and only certain people, such as doctors, are allowed to provide or help provide medical assistance to someone who wishes to die. People who help someone die must follow rules set out in federal and provincial or territorial law.

The Government of Canada provides more information about medical assistance in dying.
