Advocacy Resources

CDHA listens to you and is your voice to government, media, and the public. However, success in political advocacy can’t be accomplished alone. CDHA depends heavily on members like you delivering a strong message to decision makers. Use these advocacy resources to raise awareness of the importance of access to preventive and therapeutic oral health care for Canadians.
