Our Private Member’s Bill made it to the House of Commons!


While you were busy writing letters and sending postcards to educate our MPs, Shawn Buckley was busy drafting a new Private Member’s Bill to repeal sections 500-504 of Bill C-47.

What Is A Private Member’s Bill

A Private Member’s Bill is a Bill that can be introduced by any Member of Parliament that is not a Member of the Cabinet. After a Bill is introduced to Parliament, the Bill will be debated and voted on by other Members of Parliament, becoming law if it garners sufficient support. This Bill is a draft law.

Why Is This Private Member’s Bill So Important?

The Bill aims to repeal Sections 500-504 of the Budget Implementation Act, 2023, No. 1 (formerly Bill C-47). As you may know, these sections, embedded within the annual budget bill, redefine natural health products and subject the entire industry to heightened regulation and excessive fines up to $5,000,000 per day, by moving them fully into the therapeutic products category, alongside chemical drugs.



On Tuesday December 5, 2023, MP Blaine Calkins of Red Deer—Lacombe, Alberta, took a decisive stand in support of our cause and officially tabled our Private Member’s Bill in the House of Commons. The Bill was seconded by MP Brad Vis, and given the official Bill number C-368.

This action by MPs Calkins and Vis effectively amplifies our voices, champions the cause for the natural health industry, and acts in the interests of every Canadian citizen that relies on natural health products to care for their health and well-being.

You can watch the introduction of the Bill in the House here. (1.5 minute watch)


There are three ways for you to get involved and support Bill C-368 (our Private Member’s Bill):

2. Print a copy of our MP letter.

We have provided a form letter below.

However, if you have the capacity to write your own letter, in your own words, we strongly encourage you to do so. Personalized letters hold much more weight with our MPs.

3. Affix the draft Private Member’s Bill to your MP letter.

We suggest stapling your letter to the draft Private Member’s Bill. This ensures that your MP receives both your letter and the draft Private Member’s Bill the letter references in one package.

4. Look up your MP’s constituency address.

It is important to send a letter to your MP at both their House of Commons address and their Constituency Office. You can find their Constituency Office here:
House of Commons Current Members of Parliament.

5. Send your letters to multiple MPs. 

You don’t have to stop at sending letters to your Member of Parliament. You can also mail your letter to the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health, the Standing Committee on Health, or even all 338 MPs, if you’re willing.
