Advocacy in action: National Food Allergy Action Plan

May 28, 2019

Today we, along with the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (CSACI), are on Parliament Hill meeting with Members of Parliament and Senators to launch our National Food Allergy Action Plan. 

The goal of our action plan is to set the framework to guide future actions for reducing the impact of food allergy and improving the quality of life for Canadians living with this medical condition. Specifically, our plan focuses on greater support in the areas of prevention, management, treatment, and broad-based community and food system support. Be sure to review our action plan below.

You can also view our “Faces of food allergy” video that was launched with the action plan today. The video shares the patient perspective and provides a glimpse into what it’s like to live with this medical condition. This video is being highlighted today to ensure the patient voice, your voice, is front and centre. Thanks to those of you who participated in the video and for sharing your story.

Stay tuned! We will be taking the National Food Allergy Action Plan to the next federal election. Please watch for our campaign toolkit in the coming weeks to become more involved.Together, we are making real change happen!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Gerdts
Executive Director, Food Allergy Canada
