Panelists announced for #CaretoChat on Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

The passing of federal legislation in June 2016 to legalize Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) has had a profound impact on seniors care.

While governments and stakeholders across Canada have been working together to support the integration and implementation of MAiD within the Canadian health care system,  the issue remains highly controversial, with some advocating for stricter limits, and others arguing that it needs to be expanded and more readily available, including within faith-based institutions.

To discuss challenges that have occurred since MAiD was legalized, as well as concerns that have been raised such as the current federal legislation being too vague, restrictive or broad in scope, BC Care Providers Association will be hosting a Care to Chat panel discussion titled MAiD in B.C.

BCCPA is pleased to announce the following panelists:

Wanda Morris, former VP of Advocacy, Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP)


Paddy Rodney, Associate Professor, UBC Nursing

Robert Breen, Executive Director, Denominational Health Association and Catholic Health Association of B.C.

Colette Squires, Community Liaison to Hon. Darryl Plecas and MLA for Abbotsford South

Jody Vance (Moderator), Broadcaster and Journalist

Care to Chat will take place on Friday, April 5th from 11.30 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Terminal City Club in Vancouver, following the SafeCare BC AGM.
