Physician-assisted dying, or "medical assistance in dying", as it is now known, was decriminalized in certain circumstances as a result of the Supreme Court of Canada's 2015 decision in Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) and implemented through Bill C-14 in 2016.

This timely collection of 13 papers, developed out of a national academic symposium held in September 2017, examines the social, ethical and legal implications of the Carter I and Carter II decisions and offer meaningful reflections to the many perplexing questions currently being asked about MAiD.
