The World Health Organization (WHO) develops the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) in consultation with medical experts and scientists at a global level. Health Canada, the Public Health Agency of Canada, the Canadian Institute for Health Information, and Statistics Canada continue to work with the WHO in advancing the Canadian perspective regarding the ICD.
Protecting the health and safety of Canadians from harmful substances and pollution is a priority for the Government of Canada. Under the Chemicals Management Plan, the Government of Canada assesses and manages chemicals to reduce risks to human health and the environment. Risk assessments take into consideration various factors, including potential harms to the general public and vulnerable populations. These assessments, and any subsequent risk management actions, are based on the most up-to-date scientific evidence and other relevant information available at the time of assessment.
Some of the issues raised in the petition fall within the jurisdiction of provincial or municipal authorities, such as medical care access and policies for public indoor spaces. These authorities would be best placed in responding to those concerns.
