Tell us what you think:
We want you to help us refine the draft Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) policy before it’s finalized.
The draft policy retains the majority of the core professional expectations set out in the current MAID policy, but it has been redesigned and streamlined to focus on CPSO’s professional expectations.
The draft policy maintains the requirement that physicians must comply with the legal requirements for MAID (i.e., eligibility criteria, safeguards, and reporting) while the actual legal requirements have been moved to a new companion resource (MAID: Legal Requirements).
The draft MAID: Advice to the Profession document has been updated to clarify and further explain the legal and professional obligations for MAID, including new guidance on how mentorship affects independence and objectivity between clinicians, confirming after-death plans for MAID in community settings, and added tools, information, and resources related to MAID for both physicians as well as for patients and caregivers.

Have your say:
We want to hear your thoughts on the draft policy. For example, we’re interested to know:
- Does the draft policy provide useful guidance to physicians?
- Are the expectations set out in the draft policy clear and reasonable?
- Are there issues not addressed in the draft policy that should be?
Please provide your feedback by November 28, 2022.
Your feedback is important to us. Your comments will be carefully reviewed and used to help us evaluate the draft MAID policy. CPSO Council will ultimately determine what policy revisions will be made when finalizing and approving the policy.
Thank you for participating!
