In keeping with our mission to educate, empower and support individuals and communities in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, Osteoporosis Canada communicates concerns about various aspects of care across Canada to provincial and federal governments. This is done through advocacy.
The federal budget date has been set for April 19th and Osteoporosis Canada is asking you, members of our community, to reach out to your Member of Parliament/Policy Staff and help amplify the message – include the HCCC proposal for urgent support of the health charitable sector in the upcoming federal budget.
Founded in 2000, the Health Charities Coalition of Canada (HCCC) is a member-based organization comprised of national health charities – including Osteoporosis Canada and patient groups who represent the voice of patients at all levels of the health care continuum.
You can view the HCCC final proposal that has been submitted here.
We would love to hear your story of living well with osteoporosis. Even sharing some simple accomplishments might be enough to inspire courage in someone who has just been diagnosed.
