Government of Canada Enacts Bill C-224 to Address Firefighter Cancer Risk

Wednesday June 28, 2023

We are pleased to share that Bill C-224 has been received Royal Assent by Canadian government, enacting a national framework to not only prevent, but treat cancers linked to firefighting. Ensuring firefighters are aware of their increased cancer risk, but also protected and supported is a continued priority for PCC. We join our partnering firefighting associations across the country in celebration of this monumental development.
