The amount of Canadians requesting Medical Assistance in Dyung-MAiD is on the rise, says Health Canada. According to Health Canada, 13,000 people will die in the nation in 2022 as a result of medical assistance. Compared to the prior year, there was a thirty percent increase. As per experts, this is reason for alarm. Dying with Dignity Canada's Alex Muir states that the national charity is pushing the government to broaden the qualifying requirements to include a greater variety of illnesses, chronic conditions, and impairments. It is more widely known since it is easily accessed. He claims that a great deal of people use medically assisted suicide as a final resort when they can no longer sustain their lives. Over 4 percent of all deaths occurred last year as a result of medical assistance. Officials reported that the number of medically assisted deaths has been rising since the practice was legalized in 2016.
