You cannot use your living will to

  • Demand treatment that is not recognised or not provided at a given establishment.
  • Choose a particular public establishment in the event of hospitalization.
  • Demand to stay at home in all circumstances.
  • Ask for assistance with suicide [Criminal Code, art. 115].
  • Ask for euthanasia [Criminal Code, art. 114].
  • Dispose of your belongings.

If there is any doubt about the existence of a living will and in a life-threatening emergency situation (e.g. if there is an accident on the highway), the first action of health professionals will be to save your life. In these special circumstances and faced with an unknown person, the health care team does not always have immediate access to your living will.
