Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide

"It is up to every Canadian to foster a culture of care and love for one another. The answer is not assisted death in its many forms; it is accompanying our family, our friends and even strangers to assist them in life, recognizing the inherent dignity of every person."
- Cardinal Thomas Collins​, February 25, 2020

Since June 2016, assisted suicide and euthanasia have been legalized across Canada. In March 2021, the federal government passed legislation that removed many euthanasia safeguards, while also opening access to those who did not have a foreseeable natural death.

As more and more Canadians are considering euthanasia, we have created this page to provide information and resources about assisted suicide. We also ask you to pray for those who are sick, suffering and vulnerable in our country and for those who care for them.
