HOW IS SENDING A LETTER TO YOUR MP USEFUL?

A personal letter to your MP can be an effective tool for change and is one of the most simple and effective ways to engage your Member of Parliament about an issue you care about.

Contacting your MP will help strengthen the voice for a national strategy for perinatal mental health by letting them know this is an issue you truly care about. Our MPs are there to listen to the views of the public, understand your perspective, and represent you in Parliament.

The more people who contact their local MP on a given topic, the more likely this matter will be raised. As one of their constituents, your opinion holds a lot of weight, as based on your vote, they will win or lose elections.

Here’s your chance to TAKE ACTION and help us lobby the government for a national strategy for perinatal mental health by sending a letter by Canada post or email to your local MP!
