  • Introduction – The Future Role of Health Law and Medicare: The Holy

  • Indigenous Mental Health: Imagining a Future Where Action Follows
           Obligations and Promises
    • Authors: Constance MacIntosh
      Abstract: This article considers what it would mean if Canada fulfilled select existing commitments and obligations concerning the mental health needs of Indigenous peoples, as identified through current programs and recent jurisprudence: that is, where would we be if Canada carried through on existing commitments? After identifying the role of law in perpetuating poor mental well-being, it assesses programs for First Nations and Inuit peoples and determines they are unlikely to be effective without operational changes and responsive funding. The article then turns to the situation of Metis and non-status First Nations and the implications of Daniels v. Canada for changing the status quo – both by requiring appropriate mental health supports, and by dismantling the racist legal logic that has long undermined the mental well-being of non-status First Nations and Metis persons, by positioning them as not counting as true Indigenous peoples. The article concludes that merely fulfilling current state obligations could bring considerable short-term gains, and some long-term gains, for the mental well-being of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

  • First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Women's Health: A Rights-Based
           Approach
    • Authors: Yvonne Boyer
      Abstract: The health status of Aboriginal women in Canada is disparagingly low as compared to the non-Aboriginal population. The implementation of male centred legislation, policies, and institutions that are the hallmark of Canada’s colonial history have had a long-lasting impact on the health of Aboriginal women. Although Aboriginal women have unique sets of constitutionally protected rights, the government has failed to protect these rights.The purpose of this article is to present a constitutional and human rights-based approach to address constitutionally protected rights within the context of a distinctive Indigenous appreciation of social rights and of women’s substantive equality. This article is separated into three sections. First, using data from federal government and the Native Women’s Association of Canada statistics, the health status of Aboriginal women is examined. Many international instruments and agreements recognize a rights-based approach to health. Canada, as a signatory to a number of these agreements, has acknowledged its international obligations towards the health of Aboriginal people. Two of these agreements, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, provide the human rights standards that bind Canada with regard to all Canadians and are examined in the second section. The last section suggests that a constitutional equality rights framework may offer a promising basis for future right to health assertions by Aboriginal women. Through an analysis of both collective and individual rights of Aboriginal women to health, section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it becomes apparent that Canada is in breach of its constitutional obligations.

  • The Future of Precarious Status Migrants' Right to Health Care in
           Canada
    • Authors: Y.Y. Brandon Chen
      Abstract: This article examines how health care services in Canada are denied to precarious status migrants, either through outright exclusion based on immigration status, or due to the realities in migrants’ lives that make it difficult for them to access health care services. The author argues that this situation is unfair, given the contribution made by precarious status migrants to Canada’s sociocultural and economic fabric, and exhorts the courts and policymakers to do more to make health care services available to these migrants.

  • Donor Anonymity in Canada: Assessing the Obstacles to Openness and
           Considering a Way Forward
    • Authors: Vanessa Gruben, Angela Cameron
      Abstract: This article discusses donor anonymity in Canada and the need for law reform in this area. Currently, assisted reproduction is regulated by both the provincial and federal governments, meaning this area is regulated in a piecemeal fashion. Disclosure of donor identifying and non-identifying factors is restricted to limited information, utilized only to keep statistical records. Due to the law limiting identifying information, donor-conceived persons struggle in their attempt to discover their genetic origins. Further, provincial family law does not recognize third party reproduction, which leaves modern family units unprotected. A definition of openness in gamete donation is given in Part II. Part III addresses the law-making and assisted reproduction difficulties arising from the division of powers. Part IV analyzes the potential impact of federal prohibitions on the purchase of sperm and eggs and whether disclosing a donor’s identity will negatively impact gamete supply in Canada. The final two sections discuss the failure of provinces to enact family laws which protect the parental status of intended parents and how past cases under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms have been challenging for donor-conceived persons. The authors propose that reform should be dealt with by the legislature in four areas: provincial family law reform where necessary; robust and meaningful public consultation; interprovincial cooperation if possible; and, consideration of law reform in other jurisdictions

  • Legal Mechanisms to Improve Quality of Care in Canadian Hospitals
    • Authors: Lorian Hardcastle
      Abstract: Tens of thousands of Canadians die each year as a result of preventable injuries sustained in hospitals. The patient safety literature suggests that we must implement systems and processes designed to prevent errors, rather than focusing on the mistakes of individual health professionals. Although the law tends to reinforce the provider-centric approach to errors, several law reforms have the potential to catalyze a systems-centric approach that finds support in the patient safety literature: shifting some liability from physicians to hospitals, reforming hospital governance practices, and reconsidering the legal relationship between physicians and hospitals.

  • The Impact of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities on
           Canadian Jurisprudence: The Case of Leobrera v. Canada
    • Authors: Ravi Malhotra
      Abstract: This article traces the historical and continuing exclusion of people with disabilities found in Canada’s immigration law and policy. It highlights how an immigration policy focused on economic growth and avoiding health care costs can have devastating effects on individuals and the families of children with disabilities. Using the case of Leobrera v. Canada as a case study, the author looks to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as an international instrument which could help change Canada’s exclusionary policies.

  • Efficiency and the Pursuit of Patient Safety
    • Authors: Tom Archibald
      Abstract: Efficiency and patient safety are two important intersecting health policy goals. Efficiency should not be exploited for political expediency, but instead balanced against concerns with patient safety. Too often, the concept of efficiency has been used to justify cost saving or cost containment measures that create further adverse effects. There is clear evidence that nurseto- patient ratios have a direct impact on patient safety, but the government has resisted staffing more nurses on the basis of cost. This causes a greater cost in terms of human suffering and avoidable medical errors. Therefore, efficiency-based claims made by the government should be viewed with caution. Governments should establish a solid evidentiary foundation before advancing any efficiency claims in the health sector.

  • Autonomy, Equality, and Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health Care
    • Authors: Erin Nelson
      Abstract: The focus of this article is on access to sexual and reproductive health care, an essential aspect of reproductive justice. Although the scope of the problem is unknown, there are reasons to question whether Canadian women are able to access reproductive and sexual health services such as contraception and abortion. The author discusses these issues, and the significance of additional barriers that Canada’s First Nations, Metis, and Inuit women face in obtaining access to reproductive health care services. The author argues that providing meaningful access to sexual and reproductive health care is essential to ensuring women’s reproductive autonomy, and must be part of any political endeavour aimed at ensuring equal status for women.

  • A Constitutional Future for Abortion Rights in Canada
    • Authors: Joanna N Erdman
      Abstract: In 2015, Abortion Access Now PEI legally challenged the restrictive abortion policy of Prince Edward Island. This article studies their challenge as a unique case in the building of a constitutional future for abortion rights in Canada. The article tracks how AAN PEI drew on classic rule of law arguments of transparency, accountability, and constitutional justice to shape and claim abortion rights as democratic rights, an entitlement to fully and equally participate in and benefit from the health care system as a fundamental social institution of the state.

  • Freezing as Freedom? A Regulatory Approach to Elective Egg Freezing and
           Women's Reproductive Autonomy
    • Authors: Vanessa Gruben
      Abstract: This article reviews concerns relating to the safety and efficacy surrounding the medical practice and social impacts of the increasingly popular practice of elective egg freezing. It argues that current regulation is inadequate to ensure this technology promotes women’s autonomy and to ensure women are receiving safe and high quality reproductive health care. It concludes by identifying three priority areas where specific regulation is required: information collection and disclosure, informed consent and fertility education, and assessment and counselling.

  • Autonomy and Beneficence in Assisted Dying in Canada: The Eligibility of
           Mature Minors
    • Authors: Juliet Guichon, Farah Mohamed, Kim Clarke, Ian Mitchell
      Abstract: In Carter v. Canada (Attorney General), the Supreme Court of Canada legalized physicianassisted dying. Responding to this decision, Parliament passed Bill C-14, which provides that adults who suffer intolerably from a terminal medical condition may seek assistance to end their lives. Notably, the legislation does not grant access to mature minors. This article considers whether access should be granted, examining the Canadian assisted dying framework, situations of minors who might seek assisted dying, the law concerning mature minor consent to medical treatment, and other jurisdictions that grant access to mature minors. It argues that the ethical principles of autonomy and beneficence that underlie the Carter decision should be used to determine whether mature minors should have access to physician-assisted dying.

  • Next Up: A Proposal for Values-Based Law Reform on Unilateral Withholding
           and Withdrawal of Potentially Life-Sustaining Treatment
    • Authors: Jocelyn Downie, Lindy Willmott, Ben P White
      Abstract: The unilateral withholding and withdrawal of potentially life-sustaining treatment presents a complex issue of law and public policy. The authors examine the current state of this practice and conclude that it is occurring, being challenged in the courts, and is treated differently in different jurisdictions. The authors review the current state of the law in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada. The authors use Canada as a case study to outline a process for pursuing law reform. The authors propose a model for law and policy reform in this area that is both informed and shaped by the fundamental values of Canadian society.

  • The Impact of Biological Psychiatry on the Law: Evidence, Blame, and
           Social Solidarity
    • Authors: Jennifer A Chandler
      Abstract: This article considers the history of biological understanding of mental disorder, and explores the impact of today’s dominant neuroscientific approach on the law. The author argues that this approach subtly affects legal rules and practices, and that these socio-legal effects will likely be enhanced by the increasingly sophisticated use of neuroscience in biological psychiatry. The author illustrates the impact of the neurobiological model using five areas of law: evidence of mental states, the definition of disability in human rights law, criminal responsibility, the regulation of brain interventions, and the regulation of reproductive technologies.
