food insecurity in the North

https://psacunion.ca/illunnata-campaign-shines-light-food-insecurityIllunnata campaign shines light on food insecurity in the North

PSAC members and their communities are invited to show Canadians what northern food insecurity looks like by taking part in PSAC’s new campaign, Illunnata, which means “all of us” in Inuktitut. Because all of us deserve food security.  

We're asking members and their communities to submit photos showing what food insecurity looks like in the North — grocery store price signs, sticker tags of food prices, grocery receipts, examples of what $100 can buy. Show the rest of Canada what food insecurity looks like for you.

PSAC launches second campaign to ensure clean water for all

In collaboration with Indigenous communities and in the spirit of reconciliation, PSAC is launching our second campaign to demand safe, clean, water for all.  

Despite repeated promises dating back to 2015 from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to end long-term water advisories by 2021, the government has failed to meet the deadline, and many First Nations continue to have unreliable access to clean, safe water.
