Update on Medical Assistance in Dying and the Truchon Decision


Can’t keep up with all the legal developments re: medical assistance in dying? This session can help. Jean-François Leroux and Jocelyn Downie will provide a review of the latest judicial and legislative developments, including Truchon v Attorney General out of Quebec, Y v Swinemar out of Nova Scotia, and Bill C-7 in front of Parliament right now. They will also offer some reflections on what’s next for MAiD in Canada (including MAiD for mature minors, advance requests for MAiD, and MAiD where a mental disorder is the sole underlying medical condition). And there will be lots of time for questions.

At the end of this session, participants will:

  • Understand the decision, reasons, and implications of Truchon v Attorney General (including judicial authorizations for MAiD)
  • Understand the decision, reasons, and implications of Y v Swinemar
  • Understand the key amendments to Canada’s MAiD law proposed through Bill C-7 (what they are and the implications for access to MAiD)
  • Appreciate the issues that will be the subject of debate in 2021
