#StandWithHealthWorkers

The CMA is launching a counter movement to show our appreciation for health care workers and to let them know that we have their backs.

They need our support!

Stand With Health Workers

Health care workers are under extreme stress as they work to protect Canadians during the fourth wave of the pandemic. Along with the highly infectious Delta variant and a health care system on the verge of collapse, they are also dealing with protests, harassment and bullying.

How Can You Help?

  1. Start with your social media accounts — Use the social media buttons to post a message of support to your Twitter or Facebook. We’ve provided a template but feel free to add your own words, don’t forget to use the hashtag: #StandWithHealthWorkers.
  2. Then go to your profiles to add the I Stand With Health Workers frame to your Facebook profile picture or add a sticker to your latest Instagram story (instructions to the right).
  3. When doing so, feel free to add a note explaining why you are supporting health care workers and/or why it is important to you. You can also add the movement hashtag: #StandWithHealthWorkers.
  4. And don’t forget to share with your friends and family so they can join you and support our health workers.

    In the coming weeks, the CMA will continue to advocate on this issue. Stay tuned! And remember, the best thing you can do for your health workers is to follow your public health authorities’ safety measures!
