RESILIENT and the Canadian Network for Human Health and the Environment (CNHHE) once again participated in the federal pre-budget public consultation. Our budget asks seek to prioritize health and wellbeing and protecting the environment, which supports all life on earth.

“Human Health, the economy, and our environment are inextricably linked”

Our specific asks include:

  • Taking strong action on climate change by diverting fossil fuel subsidies into the green economy and a just transition for the fossil fuel workforce, and accelerating the adoption of low carbon commuting
  • Preventing climate change mitigation from increasing air pollution by including radon mitigation in energy efficiency rebates and mandating a reduction in wood smoke
  • Launching a national pharmacare system
  • Modernizing the Canadian Environmental Protection Act in line with current science
  • Implementing a recovery basic income
