The Ottawa Principles are evidence-based consensus policy recommendations to inform federal legislation in Canada to protect children from commercial food and beverage marketing. Read more about our policy framework here.
On June 21, 2019, the Senate of Canada adjourned for the summer. Unfortunately Bill S-228 was not called to a vote before the end of this Senate session. Read more here.
Thanks to everyone who supported the Stop #Marketing2Kids campaign and #BillS228! Although it was not passed, let us continue to stand strong in championing healthy eating and a better future for children in Canada!
Thanks to @SenNGreeneRaine and @HeartandStroke for championing efforts to restrict #marketing2Kids. Unfortunately senators @SenatCA didn’t give #BillS228 royal assent but we hope to see government move on this important healthy eating strategy.
#BillS228 wasn’t called to a vote in #SenCa before the Senate rose on June 21. This was a missed opportunity to restrict food and beverage #Marketing2Kids. We will continue to stand strong in championing healthy eating and a better future for children in Canada.
