Miller Thomson’s Health Industry Group Launches National Webinar Series
Miller Thomson’s National Health Industry Group is pleased to present a complimentary special three-part webinar series addressing some of the most pressing and topical issues facing the health industry. Our first session:
Navigating the Legal Pall of Medically Assisted Death – What you need to know about Medical Assistance in Dying in Canada
Presented by Jesstina McFadden, Kelsey Sheriff and Rosanne Rocchi of our Health Industry and Private Client Services groups
In 2016, Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) became legal in Canada. MAID can be a polarizing and intensely personal matter. It is also highly regulated and legally complex – presenting issues that cut across a number of areas of law including health, criminal, constitutional, human rights, employment, insurance, and wills and estates.
Please join us as we discuss what MAID is, and isn’t, in Canada; the regulatory framework and legal issues; practical considerations for MAID providers and those who may seek MAID; and possible future developments.
