The reality of assisted dying in Canada has changed rapidly since the Royal Society of Canada produced its report on End-of-Life Decision Making in 2011. The Canadian government is revising the Canadian Criminal Code on medically assisted dying following the landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision in Carter, legislation in the province of Quebec, and reports from two expert groups and one Parliamentary Committee.

Panelists Jocelyn Downie and Daniel Weinstock will participate in a discussion moderated by RSC President Maryse Lassonde to explore what these developments mean for the future of end-of-life decision-making in Canada.
