    Introduction:

  • August 19, 2014

    Dear Premier Wynne:

    The Ontario Toxics Reduction Working Group offers its congratulations on your recent election victory. Our Working Group includes representation from the health, environment and labour sectors, and we welcome opportunities to assist the government in achieving its environmental and health agenda, including actions that would better inform Ontarians about their exposures to toxic substances and also reduce those exposures. The Ontario government has already taken a number of measures to reduce exposures to toxic substances, including the Toxics Reduction Act (TRA) and the Cosmetic Pesticides Ban Act. Individually and collectively, our members and partners worked with government to develop and promote this legislation. We are working to help realize its full potential.

    Dear Minister Hoskins,

    As health service providers committed to our not-for-profit, publicly funded health system, this joint letter urges you to immediately ban inbound medical tourism in Ontario. As we wrote to Premier Wynne on April 11, 2014, we are dismayed by the provincial government’s inaction to stop instances of medical tourism.
