Take Action On:

Radon Testing & Mitigation

New Brunswick is the only province without financial support for Radon Mitigation. Radon-induced lung cancer is preventable.

Healthcare Funding

New Brunswickers need meaningful investment in preventative care, improved access to primary care, and a stabilized healthcare system.

Youth Nicotine Addiction

Health Canada loopholes allow Flavoured Nicotine Pouches to be sold and advertised to youth. Reclassify pouches as a prescription product.

Children’s Health & Healthy Transportation

Diesel emissions have negative health effects on children. Ask the government to commit to an electrified school bus fleet.

Federal Advocacy:
Smoke-Free Generation

Nicotine addiction is on the rise. Send a letter to your MP or the PM supporting a ban on the sale of tobacco and nicotine products to anyone born on or after a specific date
