As part of this campaign, an online petition was launched, with a paper petition sponsored by Peter Julian, MP for Burnaby â€“ New Westminster. The online petition has so far received over 11,500 signatures from concerned individuals across Canada. Signatures are still being collected, and tinyEARS.ca hopes to surpass 15,000 names. Peter Julian will be formally tabling the paper petition in the House of Commons in June. The petition calls for the establishment of a national infant hearing health strategy. Canada is among the last of the developed countries without a national strategy and standards around newborn hearing screening and early intervention. Instead these programs vary widely between provinces and territories. All signatories support the right of infants to ensure that they have all the essential support and resources needed to have a good start in life.
