This summer, we partnered up with Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto to present our 3rd summer symposium, entitled, "One Year Later: The Aftermath of Assisted Suicide in Canada." At this dynamic and explosive event we discussed the impact of the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) law has had on Canadians over the past year. There have been 1,324 MAiD cases.

We had 5 speakers with us this year, in addition to an expert panel.
