Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Motion M-110, requesting that the Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (HUMA) undertake a study on the impact on parents who have suffered the loss of an infant child, unanimously passed the House with all party support on June 8, 2018;
  • The HUMA Committee will study ways to ensure that grieving parents do not suffer any undue financial or emotional hardship as a result of the design of government programming, including from Employment Insurance Parental Benefits.
We, the undersigned, Petitioners, call upon the Government of Canada to bring legislation forward immediately following the report of the Standing Committee on Human Resources (HUMA) to provide better compassion and support for parents of pregnancy and infant loss and ensure they do not suffer any undue hardship as a result of federal government programming.
