Advance Care Planning is a process of reflection and communication in which people express their wishes for their future health and/or personal care if they could not speak for themselves.
But what does advance care planning mean for Canadians from a legal perspective?
The results of a recent national poll commissioned by the Advance Care Planning in Canada initiative told us that while 12% of Canadians have spoken to their lawyer about their care wishes (up 7% from 2019), Canadians still lack understanding of the advance care planning process.
