About Us

Our goal: That the Government of Canada introduce a levy on manufacturers of sugary drinks to reduce consumption and to partially recover related health care costs. The proceeds of a sugary drink levy on manufacturers should be used to fund healthy living initiatives including better public awareness of the harms of sugary drinks

The following organizations across Canada endorse the call for a levy on manufacturers of sugary drinks in Canada, as outlined above.
