Interfaith Statement on Palliative Care

On June 14, 2016, representatives from various faith communities including the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, the Canadian Conference for Catholic Bishops, the Canadian Council of Imams, and The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, held a joint press conference to call on Canada’s elected officials to support a national palliative care strategy and to raise awareness of gaps in palliative care.  The group, along with the Armenian Prelacy of Canada, the Canadian Conference of Orthodox Bishops, and the Ottawa Muslim Association, also released an Interfaith Statement on Palliative Care.
