. Carter v. Canada (Attorney General)

In Carter v. Canada (Attorney General) (SCC, 2015) the Supreme Court of Canada held that a person's choice to engage in a medically-assisted death in some circumstances is protected by s.7 of the Charter [paras 57-132]:
[147] The appeal is allowed. We would issue the following declaration, which is suspended for 12 months:
Section 241(b) and s. 14 of the Criminal Code unjustifiably infringe s. 7 of the Charter and are of no force or effect to the extent that they prohibit physician-assisted death for a competent adult person who (1) clearly consents to the termination of life and (2) has a grievous and irremediable medical condition (including an illness, disease or disability) that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable to the individual in the circumstances of his or her condition.
