In February, the Supreme Court of Canada lifted the ban on assisted suicide. It is now critical for people with disabilities to speak up about safeguards needed so we are not offered assistance suicide as an option when services and supports are lacking.

 

Join us on Sunday, April 26 at 3:00 PM EDT to discuss this important topic. Guest speakers will include Catherine Frazee, former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission; Jim Derksen, lifelong advocate on the human rights of people with disabilities; and Amy Hasbrouck, activist and founder of Toujours Vivant/Not Dead Yet.

 

People with disabilities from across Canada will be joining us online. Members of the medical community, politicians and media will also be invited to hear our recommended safeguards.

 

 

Thanks to the Council of Canadians with Disabilities, captioning and ASL can be offered. Please state your accommodation needs on the registration form.
