Help us remove the tax from pet food and include pets in emergency evacuation planning

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

We’re calling on the government of Ontario to eliminate the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) 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.
