From 2001 to 2017 she worked with Health Canada to achieve the recognition of the
Santo Daime as a legitimate religion and the right to import the Santo Daime
Sacrament for ritual use. In June 2017, this mission was accomplished and Céu do
Montréal received an Exemption to import and serve the Santo Daime Sacrament. For
