Cover of Advance Care Planning Canada Pan-Canadian FrameworkAdvance Care Planning (ACP) in Canada initiative updated the National Framework for ACP. This new Framework includes an updated plan for implementation of ACP in Canada. The 2019 Pan-Canadian Framework builds on the legacy of the 2012 National Framework and its influence on new developments and accomplishments. The document was re-released in January 2020 to include updated information.

The new framework is restructured to focus more on broadening partnerships, and promoting further collaboration among different jurisdictions (local, provincial/territorial, national) and systems (health, law, social services, life planning). Its development was funded by Health Canada as part of a $1.9 million project over three years to help people living in Canada prepare for their future health care needs.
