• We applaud committee recommendations to improve CEPA.

    Now it's time for Parliament to act!

    Last week 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.

    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.

I am asking you to consider joining an organization that I am a member of. I am impressed by what they do. Last year they celebrated 25 years of tireless work and successes. And continued fighting for the prevention of breast cancer.

  • They submitted a brief to the government’s Standing Committee which is currently reviewing the Canadian Environmental Protection Act - which regulates toxic substances poorly.

They attended a meeting between the newly formed Coalition against Toxics and the Standing Committee on Parliament Hill. Check out the video that was presented at the meeting in which BCAQc intern Gabrielle Caron expressed how she did not want her friends, her family or anybody to be exposed to toxic chemicals. 

BCAQc relies on membership dues and private donations to stay in operation. Membership entitles you to advance notice of seminars and workshops as well as a subscription to our electronic newsletter— BCAQc Connected.

A strong membership also helps to substantiate our financial applications for government grants and private foundations. Please consider joining us today!

For twenty five years — with your support — BCAQc has been working hard to get vital information about environmental and chemical links to breast cancer to the public, and we now know that our message is being heard.

We ask you to consider a financial gift to Breast Cancer Action Quebec to help us to continue to get this vital information to the public.

There are many ways you can be involved: volunteer, write a letter to the editor, book an educational workshop for your school, community group or work place.

Engage with us, follow us on social media, share your opinions and ideas – take BCAQc’s message to your community! Be a voice for a change!
