Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

​On Friday, June 17, the Canadian Senate passed Bill C-14. As such, doctors are no longer prohibited from providing assistance in dying to competent adults seeking this service who have a grievous and irremediable medical condition that causes enduring, intolerable suffering. For more information, visit the Health Canada website.

This is an important, sensitive, and emotional topic for British Columbians and we are working hard to ensure the people within our communities have access to the highest standard of compassionate and respectful care, while ensuring staff and physicians provide services within the law.

As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
