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.

More details, and information for the public and for health practitioners, is available on the Ministry's website.
