Our doctors maintain professional, respectful and compassionate relationships with their patients. This includes accompanying patients as they make difficult choices, understanding fully that the final decision is always the patient’s. 

Our doctors simply ask that they be respected as professionals in return. 

The Canadian Medical Association is holding their Annual General Meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia from August 23rd-26th, 2015. During this meeting members will discuss the issue of "Principles-based approach to assisted dying in Canada". This will include a CME credit education seminar and discussion on the topic. To join via webcast to earn CME credit for this and other sessions, visit their website. This meeting will also include an important vote for delegates only on the topic of Proposed Conscience Protection Procedures. CMDS has partnered with the CFCPS and CPL to present a proposal that the CMA has included in their voting options. The CMA also conducted a member dialogue on the topic of Assisted Dying in advance of their AGM.

In March, 2015, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario passed their policy on Professional Obligations and Human Rights. This policy requires Physicians to give effective referrals and in some cases to perform procedures that are contrary to their moral, ethical and religious beliefs. This policy directly contravenes the freedom of conscience of Physicians.

CMDS held a press conference March, 24th, 2015, announcing that CMDS has filed an application asking the court to declare that portions of the CPSO's March 6th, 2015 policy breaches sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. To watch the press release, please click the video below.

For more information on the CPSO Policy and the CPSS draft policy as well as the proposal to the CMA, please refer to our Conscience Protection Resources and visit the links below.
