What We’re Fighting For – Advocacy


Alpha-1 Canada is very active in advocating for changes in government policy that will benefit Canadians affected by Alpha-1. Sometimes alone and other times as part of coalitions we have a number of successes under our belt, though much needs to be done.

We often call upon our supporters to help by writing to, or visiting, their local political representatives. When we do, please get involved and make a difference!

We currently have ongoing advocacy campaigns in the following jurisdictions:

Federal Advocacy

Provincial Advocacy

Paid Plasma Donation Position
