Take Action

Mobilizing everyday animal advocates in Canada is a powerful way to amplify animals’ voices in the political arena. Animals’ interests have been sidelined throughout Canada’s history, but the last few years have shown that when we speak up in large numbers, real change is possible. During the last federal election, we endorsed and supported the first-ever crop of animal-friendly MPs — since then, MPs and Senators from all major parties have worked to pass the first pieces of serious animal protection legislation ever adopted in Canada. Working together to help elect animal-friendly MPs led to a wave of legislative victories for animals during this parliament:

  • The end of whale and dolphin captivity
  • A ban on the trade in cruel shark fins
  • Making all forms of bestiality illegal
  • Closing loopholes in laws preventing animal fighting

This year, we’re going to make sure animal protection issues are at the forefront of the conversation during the federal election.
