Did you know that households across Canada are paying GST on menstrual hygiene products?
According to the Government of Canada all menstrual hygiene products are considered a non-essential item or luxury.
A small tax on tampons/pads/panty liners/menstrual cups adds up when combined with the systemic challenges many women, trans people, genderqueer people, and other menstruators face in terms of their income, housing, and economic stability.
Let the government know we are essential!
