5 Provinces & 50 Municipalities Join Proclamation Initiative

For the 4th consecutive year, Save your Skin Foundation’s proclamation initiative has invited Canadian municipalities and provinces to take a stance against skin cancer by proclaiming May ‘Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month’. Mayoral proclamations help to educate communities on sun safety to bring greater awareness to this dangerous, and largely preventable, disease. Look for your city on the full list HERE.

In our most successful year to date, over 50 municipalities and 5 provinces have issued signed Proclamations to proclaim the month of May 2022 ‘Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month’.

Members of our SYSF team have had the honour to present to the Mayors and Councils of a dozen municipalities across the country to share their experiences as patients and spread the message of sun safety and early detection of skin cancer.

Below is a video message from Ottawa Mayor Sutcliffe proclaiming May ‘Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month’. We thank him for his commitment to keeping his community safe!
