Dying With Dignity Canada
YOU DESERVE THE RIGHT TO PLAN FOR PEACE OF MIND
Physician-assisted dying is now legal in Canada. But Ottawa’s new right-to-die law rules out access for the more than 100,000 Canadians who receive a dementia diagnosis each year. This is not acceptable.
At Dying With Dignity Canada, we are committed to establishing real choice for Canadians with dementia. We believe individuals diagnosed with a catastrophic illness should be allowed to, while they are still competent, make advance requests for assisted dying. According to recent polls, 8 in 10 Canadians agree with our position, and support is growing.
Ensuring that Canadians with dementia are not discriminated against is a big job, and we can’t do it alone. That’s why we’re calling out to the growing chorus of Canadians who support your right to die in peace with the help of a doctor.
Do you want the right to make an advance request for assisted dying, to be honoured when you can no longer care for yourself or recognize your loved ones? If so, visit dyingwithdignity.ca for more information on how to join the movement. There, you can sign up to join a chapter where you live, learn about volunteer opportunities, and discover world-class research on why assisted dying is a humane choice for individuals facing unbearable suffering.
So please, Voice Your Choice today for the right to have peace of mind before you can no longer speak your mind.
After all, it’s your life — it should be your choice.
