The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is pleased that historic federal legislation on medical aid in dying is now in place.

For the CMA, this important new law represents the culmination of years of work and consultation with physicians and the public. This extensive outreach informed our call for robust federal legislation to ensure access is not impeded, protects vulnerable patients and respects the personal convictions of health care providers.
