Euthanasia & Assisted Suicide - Doctor advising patient on Euthanasia

Take Action 2019: Learn more and take action on Conscience Rights in your province.


Canada has legalized euthanasia and assisted suicide under certain circumstances. These practices deliberately and intentionally cause a person’s death.

All human life is precious. Life is a gift from God for us to respect and protect through all its stages. Each person’s life has worth, regardless of their age or ability, because they are made in the image of God and loved by him. This belief in the sanctity of all human life compels us to completely oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide.

God calls us to care for those who are vulnerable, including those who are ill or near the end of life. The EFC supports palliative care as a compassionate response that supports and cares for those who are suffering or terminally ill.
