Sept 2018 BOH - Michael Chong Letter to Minister Petitpas Taylor re WDGPH's Request for the Budget Increase to the P2P Program

May 29, 2018

The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Health
Tunney’s Pasture
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9

Dear Minister,

I would like to convey my support for Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health’s (WDGPH) request that the budget for the Pregnancy to Parenting program be increased.

This program is effective and necessary in providing assistance to pregnant women. It has not had a budget increase since 2004, making it difficult for WDGPH to deliver this program.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Michael Chong
