💰 Stop the unjust tax on psychotherapy! 💰
Thank you for all of your support in sending this crucial message to Finance Minister Chrystal Freeland. We have now surpassed 13,000 advocates on this mission! 😊
At an average session rate of $150, HST adds $19.50 to the cost of each session. No other regulated providers of psychotherapy (Psychologists, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Doctors, Nurses & Psychiatrists) have to charge tax in Ontario.
Only counsellors and psychotherapists, professionals specifically trained to provide this service, have to charge tax. This discrepancy makes no sense! It’s time to remove this financial barrier 🌟 You can find our petition on Leadnow.ca.
The government says they want to invest in mental health care. This would be an easy way to provide increased access to this essential service 💡
Prior to the pandemic, 1 in 5 Canadians were experiencing mental health issues. That number has already increased to 1 in 4 😥 The time for change is now. Make your voice heard to advocate for this change 🙏🌈 This is a national issue affecting counsellors and psychotherapists. Sign our petition today!
