Submission to AMAD Committee Studying MAID for Mental Disorders

Cardus made a submission to the parliamentary committee studying Canada's readiness to expand MAID to mental disorders as the sole underlying condition. We recommend an indefinite pause and assert that Canada is not and will not be prepared for the March 2024 expansion. We ask the committee to consider readiness beyond that of practitioners, including readiness of the existing MAID system, the most affected populations, and the Canadian public.

Memo: SOCI Committee’s Study of Bill C-35: An Act Respecting Early Learning and Child Care in Canada

Cardus made a submission to the Senate committee studying Bill C-35: An Act respecting early learning and child care in Canada. We argue that the bill is unnecessary and enshrines an inequitable program. However, if Senators support Bill C-35 to the next legislative stage, Cardus recommends several amendments to strengthen the legislation.
