In an historic 94 to 22 vote at the National Assembly of Quebec, Bill 52,
An Act Respecting End of Life Care, passed into law at 4:14 pm on June 5, 2014.

This is the first time that medical aid to die becomes an option for adult citizens of Quebec who are capable of giving their informed consent, and who are suffering from a terminal, serious, incurable illness, in an advanced state of irreversible decline in capability, and suffering constant unbearable physical or psychological pain which cannot be relieved in a manner the patient deems tolerable.

There may be legal challenges before the law becomes operative.
