Will you stand up for Canadian Charities?

2015-09-14

Dear Friend, 


For decades, Canadian charities have given voice to the concerns of Canadians who want social progress, better health and a clean and safe environment. From laws banning smoking in public places and the creation of anti-drinking and driving laws, to the reversal of the depletion of the ozone layer and the curbing of the acid rain crisis -– all these achievements and more were a result of the efforts of charities and the millions of Canadians who supported them. 


It is important for a healthy democracy that charities are involved in shaping public policy.


 

We are asking all federal party leaders to fix our broken charitable laws. 


Doing so will ensure Canadians continue to have an ongoing avenue for voicing their concerns about issues that impact their daily lives.


Will you stand with us and ask for a healthy democracy in Canada? 


 

Sign the petition

Read the Report.

 

 

Yours in defence of the environment and democracy,


Diane Beckett
Interim Executive Director
