One in nine Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime?
Breast Cancer Action Quebec (formerly Breast Cancer Action Montreal) advocates for breast cancer prevention and the elimination of environmental toxins linked to the disease. We work to empower people to make the societal changes needed to stop the disease before it starts.
FemmeToxic's goal is to educate young Canadian women about the potential dangers of cosmetics ingredients and provide people with the tools they need to create personal change and to influence national legislative reform. Refuse to be “toxified”! Demand safer cosmetics!
Prevention and Action against Cancer and Toxicants
The PACT project is an education and mobilization project for Quebec community groups with the goals of sensitizing them to the dangers of toxicants in consumer products. We also want to encourage the community to fight for regulatory change and to pressure industries to phase-out or eliminate toxicants.
3I: Influence, Initiative, Impact is created to address the leadership component of FemmeToxic by working with five young women's community groups in and around Montreal. 3I will help promote young women's leadership in community, civic and political actions. This is an exciting opportunity for us to work with young leaders!
