Canada’s 44th federal election is officially underway with voting set on Monday, September 20th to determine the next government. Food Allergy Canada is ready too with our #FoodAllergyVotes campaign.
In this election, major policy issues around the pandemic, economic renewal, climate change, and Indigenous reconciliation are expected to take centre stage. But other important issues affecting wide segments of the population will strive for attention, and the prevention, management, and treatment of food allergy is no exception.

Your voice is needed to make #FoodAllergyVotes heard
#FoodAllergyVotes is calling on every federal party to #MakeFoodAllergyCount by supporting the National Food Allergy Action Plan. The comprehensive strategies within the national plan will help to improve the quality of life for the over 3 million Canadians living with this medical condition and those who support them. 1-in-2 Canadian households are also impacted by food allergy, including teachers and childcare workers, restaurant employees, coaches, parents with school-aged children, and others caring for or working with people with food allergy.
Issues like access to accurate ingredient information and ensuring the broader community is educated on the seriousness of food allergy, particularly in the childcare sector, are key areas of focus in the national plan. But we can’t do it alone, your voice is needed.
