Euthanasia and physician assisted suicide are now legal in Canada.
On Feb. 6, 2017 the Catholic Bishops of Saskatchewan issued four texts related to the issue. the documents include:Introduction A pastoral letter - Living Through Our Dying A pastoral reflection - Jesus: the Word Who is Life A set of guidelines for priests, deacons and laity providing pastoral care to the sick and dying - Care for the Dying: Pastoral Directives
The three texts were released Feb. 6, 2017 – exactly two years after the Supreme Court decision that struck down the ban on physician assisted suicide and euthanasia. The new reality came into effect across the country when Bill C-14 received royal assent in June 2016. The documents from the Catholic bishops of Saskatchewan were released to mark the World Day of the Sick, Feb. 11.
