Paper petition

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons


  • Canadians with mental illness should be provided with treatment and support;

  • Mental illness is complex and can include suicidal thoughts as a symptom; and

  • The lives of Canadians with mental illness will be at risk when they are eligible for medical assistance in dying (MAID) on the basis of mental illness alone, especially when treatment and support are not readily available.

Therefore we, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to reverse the law extending eligibility for MAID to people with mental illness as their sole medical condition.
