SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Although some products, such as food and cosmetics, contain ingredient labels to tell us what’s in them, many of the products that we buy in Canada don’t. This means we can’t make informed choices on whether to use them.
Currently in Canada, manufacturers of consumer products such as household cleaning products or electronics do not have to list ingredients but they may list this information on their products voluntarily. They should also offer this information if you ask for it.
