The Harry Crowe Foundation presents the 2016 Annual Olivieri Lectureship on Medical Ethics
"Assisted Death in Canada: Where are we? How did we get here? Where are we going?"

Collaborative Health Education Building
1st Floor, Room C170
5793 University Avenue
This year's speaker is Professor Jocelyn Downie, professor of law and medicine and Canada Research Chair in Health Law and Policy at Dalhousie University.
In this presentation, Jocelyn Downie will explore the seismic shift in law on assisted death.
Downie will describe the Supreme Court of Canada's decision in Carter v. Canada, the Quebec medical aid in dying legislation, and the reports of provincial-territorial and federal advisory bodies.
Downie will then explore some of the key issues that are sure to be the focus of debate as Canadians respond to the new federal assisted death legislation.
