Advocating for Your Breath

The deep and lasting change that Ontarians so desperately need requires significant policy change via the work of health advocates to put into place the programs, protocols and laws required to protect the breathing of all Ontarians.

Thankfully, as a health advocate, The Lung Association has a solid foundation of strength from which to build on in this area. From improving protocols through the ER asthma care pathway, to protecting the lungs of kids through our work on smoke-free cars for children, to the phasing out of Ontario’s coal-fired plants, to improving access o medications and treatments, to protecting children with asthma through Ryan’s Law and to the passing of the Lung Health Act and the establishment of The Ontario Lung Health Advisory Council.

As a health advocate we will always be striving for your right to breathe better.

Breathing Policy Forums

The Lung Association developed a series of Breathing Policy Forums with the goal of tackling some of the most urgent and pressing issues facing healthcare today by bringing together thought leaders from the public and private sectors to develop creative and actionable solutions that will improve the healthcare system in Ontario.
