New Resources to Support the Legal Processes of Advance Care Planning in Canada.

The “Living Well, Planning Well” toolkits are two complementary resources about the legal processes and requirements of Advance Care Planning in Canada.

Public Toolkit
The “Living Well, Planning Well” public resource is designed to support public understanding and navigation of the legal processes of Advance Care Planning in Canada.
The toolkit was co- developed by Speak Up and BC Centre for Palliative Care. A national Advisory Committee of legal professionals, health care providers, and patient and caregiver representatives supported its development.

Funding for this resource was provided by the Canadian Bar Association’s Law for the Future Fund grant program.

The toolkit was created by Speak Up and two legal firm partners: TorkinManes (Toronto, ON) and HarperGrey (Vancouver, BC).
Funding for this resource was provided by Health Canada as part of a $1.9 million funded project over three years to help people living in Canada prepare for their future health care needs.
