sign a petition

learn more

Sign a petition to quickly and easily voice your opinion with other like-minded individuals about the issue you care about. An online petition demonstrates to Members of Parliament (MP) and Ministers that the issue is important to you and your community, and allows you to get others aware and involved.

why use petitions

Petitions can send a signal of public opinion to decision makers and can alert the media that there is a story they should write about. They can be a catalyst for change on their own or be one more step in the campaign journey. Petitions play an important role in our democracy.

expert fact

There is growing evidence about how online petitions affect legislation and public opinion. They can be very effective at creating change - your signature really is making a difference!

secret tip

Petitions don’t always need a big number to make a big impact. They can simply be the basis to start conversations that change how people think.

why write an LTE

Write a letter to the editor (LTE) if you want to make your opinion heard in a timely manner. You don’t need a lot of research, and your LTE can be brief and to-the-point - just 200-500 words! When time is of the essence, choose to write an LTE.

You have a better chance at getting published if you keep it short and sweet (and don’t be afraid to be bold!)

Politicians are in their jobs because of you! As Canadians, we have voted them into office to represent us. So they want to hear from you to learn what issues you feel are most important.

write your Member of Parliament (MP)

learn more

Write to your Member of Parliament (MP) as a way of introducing yourself and share a personal story or example on a topic that concerns you. Your MP works for you so be sure to get informed, and use our step-by-step instructions to help you get started.

why write your MP

Write to your MP (Member of Parliament) if you want to share your opinion about an issue that concerns you. A personalized letter or email from you means that there is a constituent in their riding who cares, and whose opinion needs to be represented on Parliament Hill.

expert fact

Sending a personalized handwritten letter by mail is one of the most influential ways to get your MP’s attention.

secret tip

Why not make writing your MP a family activity? Ask your children to draw a picture linked to our current campaign and include it with your letter. You can also take a photo of your family and share it with your MP on social media and tag @ResultsCda.

why use social media

Social media is a quick and easy way to speak up and tell your Member of Parliament (MP) that you care about immunization and access to vaccines. Get public attention and let Canada know that they should continue to be a global leader.

expert fact

Twitter is a news-centric platform! 71% of users get their daily news from Twitter making it a great platform to share and spread your news.

secret tip

Politicians are people too! Don’t be afraid to use social media to reach out to them about the issues that are important to you. 94% of Canadians are on at least 1 social media platform so it makes sense for politicians to be active on social as well.

Our #LeaveNoOneBehind campaign focuses on the importance of health equity. As we all grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, we need Canada to invest in developing strong, equitable and resilient health systems at home and abroad.

The ask: Canada to support a global and equitable response to COVID-19 by investing in the strengthening of health systems in low-income countries and ensuring that treatment and a vaccine be made available to all.

Instantly let Canadian decision makers know that you want the vaccines and diagnostic tools for COVID-19 developed with public funding in Canada available to all. Our top health officials have the power to deliver this funding research responsibly and equitably. Sign this petition to signal that protecting the health and well-being of Canadians from a highly transmissible disease in a highly connected world necessitates a response rooted in global solidarity.
