You helped encourage MPs to support federal legislation on environmental racism!

Thank you for writing to your MP to support Bill C-226.

Decision-makers need to hear from residents about the harm and impact of environmental racism. Bill C-226 is now in the Senate and if both chambers of Parliament approve it, it will become law! This would require the government to examine the links between socio-economic status and environmental risk, and develop Canada’s first national strategy on environmental racism and environmental justice.

We hope you’ll continue to spread the message among your family and friends about how important it is for Canada to adopt a national strategy to identify, address and prevent environmental racism, and advance environmental justice, as proposed by Bill C-226.
