Advocating for Pet Well-being:

Help us Remove GST from Pet Food and Ensure Pets are included in the National Adaptation Strategy

Pets Canada is leading two federal advocacy efforts to improve the lives of pets and their owners across the nation. 

We’re calling on the federal government to eliminate the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on pet food, recognizing its essential role in pet care. The cost burden of this tax restricts access to proper nutrition, affecting both pet parents and the already strained veterinary and shelter systems. By removing this barrier, we can enhance pet health and happiness while reducing pressure on the healthcare system.

Additionally, Pets Canada is urging the government to include pets in the National Adaptation Strategy, acknowledging their importance as family members during times of crises like floods and wildfires. By ensuring funding for their emergency evacuation, we can prevent heart-wrenching choices and bolster community resilience.
