e-2362 (Employment and labour)

E-petition
Initiated by Leanne Korczak from Cochrane, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • The Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (HUMA) report entitled “Supporting Families After the Loss of a Child” and its seven recommendations are a path forward for ensuring that grieving parents do not have to endure further hardship or suffer any undue financial or emotional distress as a result of the design of government programming;
  • Nearly a year has passed since the HUMA committee report was tabled, and no concrete action has been taken by the government; and
  • Grieving parents will no longer accept excuses from this government and expect action to be taken immediately to provide better support and compassion for those who have suffered as a result of pregnancy and infant loss.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to immediately enact the seven recommendations of the HUMA committee report entitled “Supporting Families After the Loss of a Child”, including creating a new 12-week bereavement leave for parents grieving the death of a child.
