On June 17, 2016, the federal government introduced  Bill C-14 , which decriminalizes medical assistance in dying (MAID). The College has updated its  Code of Ethics , the Health Professions Act bylaws for standards of practice for  community ,  hospital , and residential care  pharmacies, and amended the standards, limits and conditions on MAID to reflect the legislation. Bill C-14 addresses physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other health care professionals, and exempts them from prosecution under the Criminal Code.
