Abstract [en]

Currently, Quebec is the only province in Canada, which has taken a decision on legalizing euthanasia and physician assisted suicide. In Quebec euthanasia and physician assisted suicide are labelled as medical aid in dying and perceived as a part of healthcare. However, in Canada, at the federal level, euthanasia and physician assisted suicide remain punishable under the Canadian Criminal Code.

This article examines Quebec’s legal approach to medical aid in dying, highlights some of the legal challenges, and discusses the need to handle them. The authors first provide a brief background of the euthanasia and assisted dying debate in Canada and particularly in Quebec. Further, they explain the concept of medical aid in dying and analyse the criteria for accessing it. Then they move on to analysing the constitutional legality of the Bill 52, an Act respecting end-of-life care allowing for medical aid in dying and possible legal consequences a physician might face if medical aid in dying is provided.
