Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID)

By: CVH Team

The Canadian Virtual Hospice (CVH) provides information and support to manage illness through a palliative approach to care. This website has many valuable articles and videos about serious illness as well as grief and loss. Please search our website for information and supportive ways to cope.

Decision-making about MAID and provision of medical assistance in dying lies outside the palliative care focus of CVH. 

Information about medical assistance in dying can be found on the Government of Canada’s website.
