Advocacy

The CFNU and its provincial member organizations are proud to be advocates for nurses on the issues that matter.

It is important to get involved in the CFNU’s campaigns so that we can continue to push the agenda of Canada’s nurses forward. Together, we will continue to fight to protect our strong publicly funded health care system, advocate for quality safe patient care for all people living in Canada, improve the health, safety, and working conditions of nurses, and advocate for other important issues with our allies here at home and abroad.

Your voice matters. Read through some of our recent campaigns here, and learn about the important work of Canada’s nurses and what you can do to get involved.
