Intervener Status – Supreme Court of Canada

The Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses (CACCN) was granted intervener status before the Supreme Court of Canada in the case of Mr. Hassan Rasouli v. Sunnybook Health Sciences Centre, Dr. Brian Cuthbertson and Dr. Gordon Rubenfeld.  CACCN’s participation in this proceeding on December 10, 2012 ensured that the perspective of Canadian critical care nurses regarding end of life decision making were heard at the highest court in the country.

CACCN was represented on a pro bono basis by the legal team of Rahool Agarwal, Nahla Khouri, Nicholas Saint-Martin and Saro Setrakian of Norton Rose Canada LLP.
