June 30th 2020 Advocacy and Research Request

On June 30th, 2020 a cohort of Canadians and permanent residents penned a letter to Dr. Theresa Tam and each Provincial Chief of Public Health Officer throughout Canada. We wrote warning of Long Covid sequelae impacting lives and livelihoods throughout Canada.

The sequela was affecting us, our children, family members and friends. Unchecked, unacknowledged and quite often, unbelieved by physicians, employers and policy makers.

Over two years later, some of us are still sick.

Over two years later, those living with Long Covid, old and new cases, still have little to no acknowledgment, resources or support from the Government of Canada and their provinces and territories.
