It can be challenging to access information on how to navigate Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD): the process can seem complicated and unreliable. When an individual makes this complex end-of-life choice, they, and those around them, are often left feeling isolated and unsupported. Many are unsure where to turn to connect with others who have lived experience. Without a place to voice their grief due to fear or stigma, many are left to navigate MAiD alone and without community support.

Since its launch in November 2017, Bridge C-14 has created a network for individuals to build meaningful connections of support through all stages of assisted death.


Bridge C-14 ​​was founded on the need for access to peer-to-peer support for those with lived experience, as well as to provide information about MAiD. We strive to help change the conversation to one which honours and respects family dignity and individual choice, and are committed to bridging the gap between procedure and compassion.

Bridge C-14 received charitable status in May 2024. “We are so proud. This accomplishment will help us to continue shaping the landscape of support for people touched by MAiD from across Canada. We’ve been working for years as volunteers to support this cause but that meant growth was difficult. Today is the start of a new chapter." Lauren Clark, President & CEO

What's in a Name?

We are often asked about the Bridge C-14 name. Where did it come from? What does it mean? The "Bridge" of the organization was seen as a connection between the medical aspects of MAiD and the ongoing need for compassionate support from peers in this space. As Bridge C-14 was launched shortly after Bill C-14 received Royal Assent, "C-14" was included in our name as a way to tie the branding with the legislation.
