 Katranjiev Euthanasia is illegal, but assisted suicide is legal (or vice versa) In 2008, the National Assembly passed laws legalizing assisted suicide. However, euthanasia is still illegal, primarily due to fear that the person being euthanized may not want to be killed, even if others think that s/he were suffering and that it'd be better for him/her to die. Thus, consent requires either a living will or for the patient to explicitly give permission.

Luziyca, the Supreme Court struck down Mirak legalizing assisted suicide (doing so in 1993 and had twenty-two assisted suicides from 1993-1996) due to the law violating Article 1, section 1 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that states that "Everyone has the god-given right to the ideals life, liberty, democracy, and property."
