• CEPA Event on the Hill

    Breast Cancer Action Quebec will be on Parliament Hill on May 29th for the tabling of the government’s report on reforming the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), which regulates toxic substances use in Canada. We will join Environmental Defence, Ecojustice, Équiterre, CAPE, and Tides Canada at a reception on Parliament Hill for MPs to demonstrate to politicians the opportunity we have today to strengthen protections of public health and the environment from the effects of toxics by improving the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA).

    To learn more about why we need to reform the Canadian Environmental Protection Act and to read our brief, Strengthening the Regulation of Toxic Substances for Disease Prevention and Environmental Health Justice that we submitted to House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development click here.

  • PREVENTION IS YOUNG

    Many people are surprised by the extent of our work with young people.

    Indeed, our Youth Program has many branches. We work with university students who support our mission and want to organize events on campuses with us to educate other students and the public on our work. We work with community groups that work with young people offering our workshops on health and the environment and/or leading DIY activities (Do It Yourself activities making homemade personal care products).

    And now we work with high school students offering our innovative program, Health Connections: Young People Connecting with their Environment and Communities.

Countdown to Our Concert!

To our delight, BCAQc has been chosen as the charity being honoured at this year’s spring concert of Montreal’s Yellow Door Choir on May 26 and 27, 2017.

Since 1983, this talented choir has been performing and partnering with local charities using their concerts to support and raise awareness for the good work these groups do. And what good company we are in! Take a look at the list of over 60 community organizations  that the Choir has supported throughout its three decades of singing.

Not only does the Yellow Door Choir donate the profits from the concert’s ticket sales to us but every penny that is made during the intermission bake sales is ours too! We will be posting information on how you can get involved by baking your favorite cookies, cupcakes or squares for the bake sale.

So, save the date for this splendid spring event, tell your friends and we hope to see you all there. It will be a double opportunity to hear an ace choir dedicated to the performance of world music in many languages while supporting us at the same time!
