By Alexandra Wilbee | WeirFoulds LLP | JANUARY 25, 2017
The recent legalization of medical assistance in dying (also known by the abbreviation "MAID") is one of the most radical and significant changes to the Canadian health care system in the last century.

On December 7, 2016, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care in Ontario introduced Bill 84, the Medical Assistance in Dying Statute Law Amendment Act, 2016.  If passed, Bill 84 will amend various provincial Acts in response to the federal legislation dealing with medical assistance in dying.
