Beatrix Kalf started this petition to Government of Canada

Seniors in long term care do not get the chance to get out in the sunshine very often.  Residents of mental hospitals and prisons likewise do not get out often enough to make sufficient vitamin D.  As a result they suffer from high rates of vitamin D deficiency.  This results in a weakened immune system and vulnerability to many infections and diseases.  This problem is especially bad in Canada where winters are long..

We would like the government to ensure that all residents of long term care homes, mental hospitals and prisons receive daily vitamin D supplements.
