Many new immigrants are unaware that they have a choice of whether to vaccinate their children or not. Canada, unlike USA, is a free country that allows you to make a choice in regards to what’s best for your children. In the recent years, there have been many reports on mercury and aluminum in vaccines causing autism, as well as asthma, allergic reactions, brain and neurological damage, and other side effects. As a parent, the health of your child in Canada is your responsibility, not that of your doctor. For this reason, it is important that you have the facts and make an informed choice when it comes to vaccinations.

Vaccine Health Risks
Many immigrants come to Canada because they want to give a good life to their children. Hearing that Canada has a good health care system, they tend to trust the system to take care of their families. However, when it comes to vaccines, it is very important to do your own research. We suggest visiting www.vaccinechoicecanada.com and searching the web for more information.
Mercury is a known neurotoxin, yet for decades it has been used as a vaccine preservative, and to some extent is still used in vaccine manufacturing with the result that trace amounts may remain in some vaccines which are not required to be disclosed by the manufacturer. Mercury in the form of the vaccine preservative thimerosal is still a component of some vaccines recommended for you and your children.
Aluminum (Al) is toxic to all life forms but is used in many vaccines to boost immune response to vaccine antigens. A known neurotoxin, aluminum activates brain inflammation (excitotoxicity) is pro-inflammatory, interferes with gene expression, impacts memory, cognition, psychomotor control, damages the blood brain barrier, depresses mitochondrial function and induces allergy.

Why this happens: Blood brain barrier
Brain organization and development is greatest during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first two years of life; it continues throughout the teen years. The blood/brain barrier is deficient for the first 2-3 years of life. This combination of weak brain protection and extensive, highly sensitive brain development of newborns makes them acutely susceptible to brain and neurological damage. In other words, when mercury or aluminum containing substance is injected into the blood stream of a child, it goes into their brain.
Other Vaccines Health Risks:
risk to fetus during pregnancy
sudden infant death
North American children are now the most vaccinated children on earth. Since 1980,
Canadian vaccine schedules have more than doubled the types of vaccines given.
Public health authorities now recommend 32 – 41 doses of 13 to 16 different
vaccines in the first 18 months alone. New Brunswick, the Northwest Territories
and Nunavut start injecting babies at birth.
At the same time the rate of chronic childhood illnesses has increased substantially.
Today 10% of Canadian children have one or more life threatening afflictions. In the
last 25 years there has been huge increases in the following childhood illnesses:
Autism – increased more than 200 times in the last fifteen years Impact on Development – Over 27% of Canadian children fall short on at
least one measure of physical, emotional or cognitive development by age 5. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – 10% increase Learning Disability – now affects 1 in 6 children Severe Mood Dysregulation (bipolar disorder) – affects 1 in 30 children Ear Infections – affects 50% of Canadian 2-3 yr olds Allergies – increased 6 fold since 1980 Anaphylactic Food Allergies – doubled in the last decade Eczema – 1 in 5 children affected Asthma – 1 in 8 children affected Obesity – tripled since 1980 Juvenile Diabetes – more than 100% increase since 1980
The medical establishment considers vaccines effective if they suppress a few
targeted illnesses – but at what expense? An emerging body of evidence indicates
that vaccines can and do damage a child’s developing immune system and brain,
leading to life-threatening or debilitating disorders like autism, ADHD, asthma,
peanut allergy, juvenile diabetes, or SIDS, death itself.
Only two provinces in Canada, Ontario and New Brunswick, have legislation governing the vaccination of school children. Both provincial Acts contain legal exemptions for all vaccines required for school entry, and these can be accessed on line through our Legal Exemption Forms page. Manitoba currently has no vaccine regulations for measles vaccine.
Health Canada States That Immunization is NOT Mandatory in Canada
“Unlike some countries, immunization is not mandatory in Canada; it cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution. Only three provinces have legislation or regulations under their health-protection acts to require proof of immunization for school entrance. Ontario and New Brunswick require proof for diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella immunization. In Manitoba, only measles vaccination is covered. [see note below] It must be emphasized that, in these three provinces,exceptions are permitted on medical or religious grounds and reasons of conscience; legislation and regulations must not be interpreted to imply compulsory immunization.”
Facts You May Not Know (adapted from the documentary, The Greater Good)
1. The safety of the current childhood vaccine schedule has never been
scientifically proven in large, long-term clinical trials.
2. Vaccine ingredients have not been tested for safety in the doses given to
human infants either singularly or in combination for co-toxicity.
3. Vaccines contain aluminum, mercury, and other toxins. Research has shown
chronic cognitive dysfunction, impaired immune function and autoimmune
disease in humans following administration of these compounds.
4. About 50% of flu vaccines contain mercury and many other vaccines still
contain trace amounts of mercury. Mercury is a potent neurotoxin and is
particularly damaging to the brain of a developing fetus or child.
5. Vaccines can cause encephalitis (brain inflammation) and permanent brain
6. The Vaccine Damage Compensation Plan in the United States has awarded more than $2.6 billion to children and adults injured by vaccines. Canada does not have a Vaccine Damage Compensation Plan (outside of Quebec).
7. Drug companies testing new vaccines are allowed to use another vaccine or a
substance containing heavy metals as a “placebo” control. This is not a true
placebo and undermines the credibility of vaccine safety claims.
8. The same federal health agencies responsible for developing, regulating and
making vaccine policy are also in charge of monitoring vaccine safety. There is
no independent body monitoring vaccine safety.
9. Vaccine safety is monitored using a passive reporting system in that it relies
on the voluntary reporting by consumers and healthcare practitioners. There is
no mandatory reporting of adverse vaccine events.
10. Vaccine induced immunity is not permanent. Infectious disease outbreaks
regularly occur in fully vaccinated populations.
11. Even in provinces where vaccinations are mandatory, legal exemptions exist
including medical, religious and philosophical exemptions. Exemptions vary by
Aggressively promoted by the medical profession and the pharmaceutical industry, vaccination is potentially the most challenging decision faced by new parents today. Visit www.vaccinechoicecanada.com to learn more.
