Centre for Clinical Ethics

Centre for Clinical Ethics logo

The Centre for Clinical Ethics is a joint venture of Providence Healthcare, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital.

Mission and values

The mission of the Centre for Clinical Ethics is to enable members of the health care community to identify and resolve ethical issues which arise in the clinical setting. We do this through education, case consultations, policy development, and research. As a faith-based Centre we are committed to the core values of our three supporting institutions and to broadening the understanding of the role that faith plays in the questions which confront people in their search for healing.

2020 Annual Fall Conference Seminar Series – November 19, November 26 and December 3

The annual CCE Ethics Conference is changing formats. This year we will hold a series of lectures/panel discussion over three consecutive Thursdays in November.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity to reflect on the ethical issues raised during the pandemic in a format that is mindful of both Zoom fatigue and the constraints on everyone’s time. The series is free. We hope to see you at one or all of the seminars in the series!

Our theme this year is Confronting injustice: exploring ethical issues raised during COVID-19

The Canadian experience of the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everyone. The pandemic has made gaps in our social and health care systems deeper and more visible. People who are elderly, racialized, disabled, underhoused, low income, or otherwise marginalized have been - and continue to be - disproportionately exposed to COVID-19 and affected by public health measures.
