The Fifth Estate investigates medically assisted death.

Since Canada legalized medically assisted death in 2016, more than 30,000 Canadians have opted to die this way, even many who are not terminally ill.

The Fifth Estate examines why some are making the choice to die and why critics argue the system allowing it has become too broad too quickly.
