The Declaration Against Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide is the result of efforts of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) to collaborate on a response to legislative efforts and legal action that seek to revise Canada’s Criminal Code to allow the practice of euthanasia and assisted suicide. The Declaration demonstrates that commitment to the sanctity of human life and the importance of upholding human dignity leads also to a strong call for renewed efforts in relation to palliative care.
Signing the Declaration will indicate broad support for its stated principles. It will also witness to the desire held by many in Canada to promote palliative care, home care and long-term care, and to ensure compassionate responses at all levels to those who are near death, as well those who are disabled, depressed, elderly or who feel burdened by physical or mental suffering and illness.
