Calls to Action

As Humanists, we need to support and speak up about what matters to us.

Stand up for Access to Reproductive Health Care

Manitoba and Saskatchewan are the only provinces not providing universal coverage for the Mifegymiso (the abortion pill).

Support “Audrey’s Amendment” to Canada’s Assisted Dying law

Audrey Parker died sooner than she would have preferred, because of the unfairness of the current legislation.

Enter this essay contest

Humanist Canada is holding an essay contest for high school students. Complete contest details are available on the Humanist Canada website. Deadline to enter is 01 March 2019. 

 

Demand an end to forced patient transfers for assisted dying

Publicly-funded, faith-based health care facilities prohibit assisted dying, and sometimes even related assessments, on their property.

Let your premier know that you want that changed.

Our February Charity of the Month is the Burrowing Owl Recovery Program.
