If passed, this bill will make it legal for people with disabilities and disabling conditions (and only them) to end their lives even if they're not close to death.

We need your help so government hears us loud and clear - people with disabilities deserve access to supports in life, not death.
Over the course of the next 2 weeks, Inclusion Canada will be actively communicating the highlights of the proceedings during the Senate study and Third Reading. You can watch the Senate proceedings start February 1 at 10:00am EST here. Follow us on Twitter and share our posts to spread our message as widely as possible - we will not sit idly by while our government threatens the equality rights of people with disabilities.
Please considering contacting your Member of Parliament or Senator today about Bill C-7 and voice your concerns. It would be helpful for you to bring the UN experts' statement to their attention.
With your help, we can continue to fight against the discrimination and stigmatization of persons with disabilities in Canada and ensure they are supported in living with dignity.
And consider attending Death by Coercion: A panel on the impacts of changes to Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) on Black Indigenous Queer Sick & Poor Communities. This event is being held on February 1st, the first day of the Senate Study, and the first day of Black History Month.
