Health Canada’s proposing regulations that it’s hoping will result in final rules for medical assistance in dying in the coming months.
The proposals include requirements for doctors and nurse practitioners, who receive written requests and cover pharmacists, who dispense medications for medically assisted deaths.
Online consultations will continue until mid-February with the aim of having final regulations by next summer.
Ottawa plans to start publishing annual reports as part of the new monitoring system the following year.
Health Canada with the help of provinces and territories will put out interim reports every six months until 2019.
Parliament passed legislation in June 2016 allowing Canadian adults to request medical assistance in dying.
