Advance Medical Directives

Cancelling Your Advance Medical Directives

Any adult who is capable of expressing his or her wishes and has indicated his or her advance medical directives.

To cancel your advance medical directives, follow these steps;

  • Telephone the Régie de l'assruance maladie du Québec to request a Revocation of Advance Medical Directives form.
  • Fill out the form.
  • If your directives are recorded in the Register, mail your completed form to the administrative centre. If they are kept in your medical file, give your completed form to the relevant health professional.


A person who is physically incapable of filling out and signing the form may ask another person to do so on his or her behalf. A person who is unable to read and write may do the same.
