Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada v. College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, 2019 ONCA 393

July 4, 2019

posted in: Legal Updates

In a recent case, an Ontario Court has rejected physicians’ claims regarding their constitutional right to religious freedom.  Physicians claimed that the requirement to refer patients requesting abortions, medically assisted dying and family planning pharmaceuticals to a non-objecting physician infringed their freedom of religion.  The Court dismissed the claim, finding that although the requirement did infringe on their religious freedom, the requirement was saved under section 1 of the Charter as a reasonable limit in a free and democratic society.
