National Health Ethics Week 

National Health Ethics Week is a time set aside for health and educational institutions, health care professionals, community organizations, businesses and members of the general public, to host and take part in educational events that explore health ethics issues.

National Health Ethics Week was designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Encourage the organization of events to raise awareness of ethics issues related to health and health care across Canada
  • Provide greater visibility for Canadian ethics committees, services and supports 
  • Provide an opportunity for Canadians to engage in dialogue regarding current health ethics issues facing their communities

We invite you to join us in participating in Canada’s inaugural National Health Ethics Week!
