Help Eliminate HST/GST on Psychotherapy in Canada - Sign the Petition


EXEMPT PSYCHOTHERAPY FROM HST/GST ...We are asking both the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada to help reduce costs and remove an unnecessary financial barrier to those who need to access these services privately by removing this tax.

Let's do what we can to make available options more affordable. The provincial petition can be found at http://www.oaccpp.ca/…/sign-the-petition-for-provincial-hs…/

The process provincially requires original signatures be submitted so you need to download and print the petition, fill in as many signatures as possible and return it to the address on the form.

To date this petition has been read into the Legislature once and as we collect signatures different MPPs (from all sides of the House) have agreed to do so, again and again, keeping this important non-partisan issue in the public eye. Please participate now - every signature makes a difference!

And for those who have not yet done so, we also have a similar Federal Petition hosted on the House of Commons website. This one is available in French and English and has over 4500 signatures to date. You can find it at: https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details…

It should take less than a minute to complete and only a moment more for you to share this link with others. Visit the link to this petition and add your name to support more equitable and affordable mental health services for all!
