Email Your Federal Elected Representative
We need to work together to defeat Duchenne now – there is no time to wait. New therapies have been approved in Europe and the United States for several years now, but in Canada we are still waiting. The Duchenne community needs our Canadian regulatory bodies to know why we can’t wait any longer for these treatments and understand the impact the lack of approved treatments is having on our Canadian children and young adults.
In the boxes below, please enter your name and your email address, choose your province and enter your postal code and the name of your federal elected representative – your Member of Parliament (MP) – will appear. You’ll note that your email will automatically be copied to the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and the Finance Minister – all key decision makers within the Federal government. The content of your email will auto-populate, but before sending it off feel free to make any changes so that it’s more personal. You’ll notice your name is included at the bottom of the email, so whenever you are ready, go ahead and hit send! You’ll get a confirmation that your email was delivered, and you will receive a copy of your email in your inbox.
We’d love to know if you get a response from your MP or anyone copied on your email. Drop us a note at one of the email addresses at the bottom of the page.
Note: In rare instances where members live in areas not currently represented, no names will be available to be selected in the Select Representative drop down box.
