Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Many Canadians will not be offered COVID-19 vaccinations for many months and in the meantime many will get sick or die from SARS CoV-2;
  • Protection by a vaccine takes weeks to develop;
  • New variants may be resistant to current vaccines;
  • The Government of Canada has not articulated a plan for protection of our children against COVID-19;
  • Ivermectin has been determined to be remarkably effective in prophylaxis (~86% fewer cases) and treatment (-68% fewer deaths) for COVID-19 prophylaxis by the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development panel;
  • Ivermectin has proven to be very safe, as one-third of the world’s population (~7,850,000,000) has taken ivermectin as part of mass community treatment to prevent many different parasite (worm) infections and where only 16 deaths and 4673 adverse events have been reported through World Health Organization and Uppsala University VigiAccess database for pharmacovigilance from 1992 to 2021;
  • Several countries, including Japan, Slovakia, Bulgaria, India, Egypt, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, have made ivermectin readily available to their citizens (often over-the-counter purchase or free);
  • Ivermectin is already approved in Canada for anti-parasitic use and is now generic and inexpensive; and
  • Ivermectin would be a candidate to provide protection and prevention against COVID-19.
We, the undersigned, physicians, scientists, and other concerned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to urgently examine the evidence in favour of ivermection and give due consideration to making ivermectin available immediately to Canadians as a schedule II medication, which can be obtained directly from a pharmacist.
