Health Canada recently released the Fourth Annual Report on Medical Assistance in Dying (2022). The data is gathered from the reports submitted by the medical or nurse practitioner who carried out the death. There is no requirement that a “third” party or neutral person witness the death or submit the reports to ensure their accuracy.
While waiting for the official report to be released, I had estimated that there would be approximately 13,200 reported assisted deaths. My estimate was close.
