National Advocacy Network

Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s National Advocacy Network has more than 200 trained volunteers across Canada, enabling us to actively influence public policy related to cystic fibrosis nationwide.

Our trained advocates can have a significant impact on the way CF issues are addressed in Canada by all levels of government. Working with CF Canada’s guidance, training and support, advocates build relationships with elected and non-elected officials in order to increase support for programs, services and policies that can improve the quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis.

We welcome new advocates; contact us at advocacy@cysticfibrosis.ca. Or check out our Take Action page for the latest on how the CF community can support our advocacy work.


As always, we are here to help. Contact us at advocacy@cysticfibrosis.ca or 1-800-378-2233.
