Petition for Menstrual Equity
Presented to House of Commons Oct. 2, 2020
Our petition launched- urging the Federal Government to stay true to their promise of providing free menstrual products in washrooms in federally regulated workplaces, and to address menstrual equity at the national level. We acquired 2,500+ signatures.
Federal Menstrual Equity Fund
The recently re-elected Federal Liberal Party of Canada announced a $25 mill Menstrual Equity Fund + free menstrual products in all federally regulated workplaces. All of us advocates will continue to hold the Gov't responsible for this rollout.

Free Menstrual Products in Federally Regulated Workplaces!
We did it! Free menstrual products will be rolled out in all federally regulated workspaces as of Dec 15, 2023. This is a HUGE win for Canadians and advocates and we hope this will pick up with private sector workplaces as well!
From the HFH community:
"Here for Her inspired me to keep speaking out for what I believe in (transgender and non binary health). You held space for people like me who were suffering in silence. So grateful for the community your team has built!"
