Holistic nutritionists have a unique educational opportunity to learn more about the controversial regulations imposed on us by Health Canada’s authority for supplements: The NHPD (Natural Health Products Directorate). This opportunity to hear Shawn Buckley, LLB, speak was created to address how these regulations impact nutritionists and to educate them on the influence they have in protecting their professional scope of practice, personal rights, and ability to live a holistic lifestyle.

“TOMORROW’S ACCESS TO SUPPLEMENTS IN CLINICAL PRACTICE”
Shawn Buckley is a Canadian constitutional and criminal lawyer, president of the Natural Health Products Protection Association, expert in the Food & Drugs Act, and Canada’s well-known advocate of natural supplements. This nation-wide webinar with Shawn will educate and empower your professional right to access supplements in Canada.
During this exclusive webinar for holistic nutritionists, Shawn will give us insights into what Health Canada’s policies on NHPs really mean, and their future ramifications on our ability to practice if things don’t change. He will discuss the products we have lost, which products may be next, the broad issues at hand for all practitioners, and what we can do about it.
Shawn will focus on educating us on:
- How Health Canada has caused a divide and misled us about the “need and value” of the regulations.
- The obstacles and losses faced by Canada’s supplement companies and traditional herbalists.
- What our future looks like under these ever-changing regulations, and potential outcomes.
- How this will affect our professional choices in practice and personal choices at home.
- Consequences we face as the profiles of some of our trusted products begin to change (cost, potency, efficacy).
- The direct and impactful action we can take to protect our rights and freedoms to practice with the tools we need in our profession.
You’ll want to sign up for this webinar if you want to understand the issues better, help protect your scope of practice, and maintain the use of therapeutic supplements to manage client health concerns.

RECOMMENDED READING TO PREPARE FOR THE WEBINAR

Reading this material will mean that Shawn can keep the content at a level suitable for nutrition professionals, and help you ask in-depth, industry-specific questions.
Shawn Buckley, LLB, is a constitutional and criminal lawyer with expertise in the Food and Drugs Act, and regulations. He is the President of Canada’s NHPPA (Natural Health Products Protection Association), and authored the Charter of Health Freedom, a proposed law to fully protect the rights of natural health product stakeholders. The NHPPA has been in existence since 2008. In that time it has grown from a grass roots movement to become internationally recognized and quoted. Between Shawn’s busy law practice and advising many of Canada’s supplement companies you know and love, he writes articles for the NHPPA, discussion papers for the industry, is interviewed for radio and print media, attends international NHP activists’ legal round table meetings, and lectures on natural health product protection, food rights and EMFs. Since working on the Strauss Herb file, Shawn has been a natural health advocate and a wholehearted convert to our paradigm. It’s an interesting story, listen to an excerpt from Shawn’s interview with Vinny Eastwood.

NUTRITIONISTS PETITION CHALLENGE
This webinar launches an important and exciting initiative, specifically for nutritionists, that will help support getting the Chart of Health Freedom to Parliament. Learn more about the opportunity on the webinar. The link to this information will be LIVE that day after the webinar!
Many thanks to our sponsors who are in support of this important educational event. This webinar allows us to share NHPPA’s message with holistic nutritionists across Canada. These sponsors believe in NHPPA’s work and that change to Health Canada regulations is necessary to help protect our access to natural health products, our professional scope of practice, personal rights and ability to live a holistic lifestyle.

We would be more that happy to start the process of developing a presentation with content relevant to the regulatory landscape within your area of practice/industry.
THE NHPPA’S MOST RECENT CAMPAIGN
If you missed the Charter to 308 MPs Campaign, you can read about it here. Our goal was for every MP to receive a copy of the Charter of Health Freedom from multiple sources, all at the same time so they had the facts they could not ignore. This is a critical time for the Charter Of Health Freedom as we are nearing a landmark 96,000 signatures on the petition. This is no small feat. Canadian history will show you how our petition stacks up. This will make it the largest federal petition in the last 15 years.
You can review the post-campaign report to see how the numbers stacked up.
