MP Julie Dzerowicz Rises in the House of Commons to get an update on the Thalidomide Survivors Support Program

 

 

I rose in the House of Commons to ask our Minister of Health, Ginette Petipas Taylor, for an update on the Thalidomide Survivors Support Program, which compensates victims for the off-label use of Thalidomide in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Thalidomide lead to miscarriages, birth defects and premature death.

I was pleased to learn that the Minister has taken action to launch a new, more compassionate support program.
