Updates on Federal Legislation

The CFHS has always had a very strong and positivie relationship with the Federal government; from our very beginnings Prime Ministers, Governor Generals, Senators and MPs have played active roles in our activities.

This strong relationship was evident as the CFHS hosted 80+ MPs and Senators recently at a reception on Parliament Hill.  Hosted by Mr. Bruce Stanton, Assistant Deputy Chair of Committees as a Whole and Mr. Rick Dykstra, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, the CFHS and its members promoted the role that humane societies and SPCAs play at the local level and the role that the CFHS fills at the National.

Out of that reception there came a new-found enthusiasm within Canada's political parties on issues surrounding animal welfare and protection in Canada.  When the next opportunity to influence the Criminal Code of Canada arises, the CFHS will be the first animal welfare group to be contacted for its input.
