Canada is the latest nation to legalize voluntary death for psychiatric conditions. In 2016, Canada passed Bill C-14, a law permitting medical euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, together known as medical aid in dying (MAID). By November 2020, more than 19,000 individuals nearing the end of life had been voluntarily euthanized.
