CAMAP Story

We are the Canadian Association of MAiD Assessors and Providers (MAiD is Medical Assistance in Dying). At its core, our organization it is made up of clinicians who provide MAiD services including assessment for eligibility and the provision of MAiD itself.

While we are predominantly an association of nurse practitioners and physicians (family physicians, hospitalists, internists, anaesthetists, neurologists and more), anyone involved in the work or interested in supporting it is most welcome to join our community. This includes social workers, nurses, care coordinators, pharmacists, nurses, lawyers, researchers, administrators, pastoral care, and more. We are a diverse community from coast to coast to coast.

The seeds of CAMAP grew from a small email group of eight colleagues in British Columbia who found their grassroots, collegial support for one another to be invaluable as they began their work in assisted dying in June 2016 when federal legislation first came into effect and allowed for the legalized provision of MAiD.

CAMAP Publications and Guidelines

One of our key tenets is to support our members by providing guidance on various topics to help ensure the highest level of medical standards in this delivery of care. Some highlights include:
