• Before we say adieu to 2017

    We know that you have many options when it comes to your end -of - year giving. Why not make a donation to Breast Cancer Action Quebec so that more women like Alina can benefit from our new breast cancer education workshop for racialized and immigrant women? All donations are tax-deductible and we will send you a tax receipt pronto!

    This is what Alina wrote to us after attending our workshop:

    "Thank You very much for responding quickly. The information was needed by all of us in a moment of support for some of the members in distress. It was a safe conversation and opened a door for more questions in regards to women's health, self-care and possible preventions."

  • PREVENTION IS YOUNG

    Many people are surprised by the extent of our work with young people.

    Indeed, our Youth Program has many branches. We work with university students who support our mission and want to organize events on campuses with us to educate other students and the public on our work. We work with community groups that work with young people offering our workshops on health and the environment and/or leading DIY activities (Do It Yourself activities making homemade personal care products).

    And now we work with high school students offering our innovative program, Health Connections: Young People Connecting with their Environment and Communities.

  • We applaud committee recommendations to improve CEPA.

    Now it's time for Parliament to act!

    The Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development released its CEPA review.

    This report is an essential starting point to reforming the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) so that Canadians are truly protected from the toxic substances harming our health.

    The report's recommendations must be implemented. The state of our health and that of our ecosystems depend on it.
