​​On June 17, 2016, the Federal Parliament of Canada passed Bill C-14, establishing the legislation to regulate the practice of MAID, such as eligibility criteria and safeguards for persons who are requesting assistance to end their life, which also include the clinicians involved with this process. On March 17, 2021, the Federal Parliament of Canada passed Bill C-7, which has created new changes and expanded criteria in the MAID legislation. In addition to determining eligibility, there is a two-track approach to procedural safeguards for physicians and nurse practitioners to follow, based on whether or not a person's natural death is reasonably foreseeable.
