Medical Assistance in Dying

Mar. 2021

On March 17, 2021, changes were made to the medical assistance in dying law (MAID) federal regulations. The revised law mainly modifies MAID eligibility criteria and safeguards in response to the Superior Court of Québec’s 2019 Truchon decision.  

An Alberta Health ministerial directive outlines that Alberta Health Services (AHS) will coordinate and facilitate access to health services relating to medical assistance in dying in Alberta. The AHS Care Coordination Service is the point of contact for ALL reporting in Alberta. 

If you have questions about medical assistance in dying, visit: or contact the AHS Medical Assistance in Dying Care Coordination Service at
