How do I Access Medical Assistance in Dying

If you are suffering from a life limiting medical condition, you can talk to your doctor or nurse practitioner about your options for treatment and care. A palliative approach to care is available to you and your caregiver and will be of great benefit to ensure your needs & wishes are met.  One option available to you at the end of your life is medical assistance in dying (MAID). If you’re already in a hospital or long-term care home, speak to your doctor or care provider about your options.
In Waterloo Wellington, you can also access information about MAID and/or receive a referral to providers who can support your request for MAID by calling 310-2222
