April 2020: A March 2012 Ipsos-Reid national poll found that 86% of Canadians had not heard of advance care planning, and less than half of Canadians had a discussion with a family member or friend about what healthcare treatments they would want if they were ill and unable to communicate. With this year’s National Advance Care Planning Day event taking place in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is perhaps more important than ever that Canadians make their advance care plans and appropriate legal documents.
