The Cancer and Work website is designed to address the unique needs of cancer survivors with returning, remaining, changing work or looking for work after a diagnosis of cancer. The website provides newly created information, resources, and interactive tools for cancer survivors, healthcare providers, employers, and highlights helpful information from across the globe.

Information package for new patients

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) occurs when a physician provides or administers a lethal dose of drugs to intentionally cause the death of a competent adult, at the adult's request. In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the current law that makes it a criminal offence for a physician to assist a patient in dying in certain circumstances. Saskatchewan's Ministry of Health continues to work closely with provincial, territorial and regional partners on policy and operational issues, to achieve an approach that is as consistent as possible between jurisdictions. More details, and information for the public and for health practitioners, is available on the Ministry's website.
